Valérie was born into a very musical family. Her father, Clency, is a well-known Mauritian singer-songwriter, and her mother Isabelle runs a music entertainment company, so one could say Valérie was born into the business too.
As soon as she was old enough, she accompanied her parents when they toured Mauritius, performing traditional sega song and dance at hotels and resorts all over the country. Singing and performing (even on TV) at a very young age, the music was already in her blood, she quickly picked up the piano and guitar.
In 2007, when her little island got too small for her, she moved to Melbourne, Australia to pursue her passion. Valerie found a band in Melbourne and gigged and toured with them for many years.
Influences: Alicia Keys, Emeli Sandé, Kehlani, Drake, Rihanna
