New York City is still home to Val Kinzler aka “Valkyrie” as she’s affectionately known to her friends and fans. Val started playing piano at age five and as her passion for songwriting grew, she picked up the guitar which led her to playing solo gigs around the NYC area and later in Europe.

Throughout her life, Val has taught music and created special events involving women in music. Her latest CD titled, “Nothing Sacred About Hatred”, is the culmination of years of songwriting. Val shares a lifetime of joy, pain, love, and loss in her lyrics. Inspired by the blues, Val’s theatrical edge has led her to create her own genre of soulful, Rhythm and blues. Val’s first all girl band experience with “The Sirens” found her playing Hammond B3 organ, piano and singing classic rock n’ roll covers at colleges and local bars. While studying jazz piano at Berklee in Boston, and later at Queens College, she also majored in theater and enjoyed performing as an actress in plays and as a film/television extra. Val’s voice and songs caught the ear of Sid Bernstein who became one of her mentors. She later recorded with good friend Ted Horowitz aka Popa Chubby who played lead guitar and co-produced her “True Love Lies” collection. Thereafter, Val’s “East Third Street” record was produced by Genya Ravan who also sang background vocals.

Simultaneously, Val’s pop ballad “Love Won’t Break” placed in the 1998 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. After the release of East Third Street, and the traumatic loss of her youngest brother to a drug overdose, Val was awarded a Martin Guitars Scholarship to study at Dusquene University in Pittsburgh, PA through “Women In Music”. It was there that her song “The Junky Next Door” stirred up conversation among her peers and teen students in attendance.

Val is a music dynamo, a talent and a true Warrior Woman! See https://www.valkinzler.com/
