2022 GROUP OF THE YEAR | Valley | | The JUNO Awards

With over 210 million global streams, Valley – comprised of Rob Laska, Karah James, Mickey Brandolino and Alex DiMauro – have spent the past two years developing organic buzz through a personal and intimate connection with their fans. Valley put together alternative pop with the care, adventurousness, and personal touch of a handmade burned CD. Cycling through moods like your favorite throwback Pinterest board, the Toronto quartet amplify sticky hooks through eloquent songcraft that’s cognizant of what came before, yet ready for the future. In 2016, Valley formed by accident when a local studio double booked them. During high school, Mike and Karah played in one band, while Rob and Alex played in another. They introduced themselves with self-written, self-produced releases, including the EP This Room Is White (2016), the full-length debut MAYBE (2019) and their last EP sucks to see you doing better (2020). The group transmit this signature style through their latest EP Last Birthday for Universal Music Canada and new label partner Capitol Records. They have joined Lennon Stella and The Band CAMINO on sold out tours across North America and are currently supporting COIN for a 17-day US tour.
