Kristian Phillip Valentino is a solo acoustic, singer-songwriter born and raised in the Chicago suburbs and now residing in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. After the passing of his father, ending up homeless, and being broken up with all within one month, Kristian began writing songs in the summer of 2010, as a way to start processing all he’d been through and begin the healing process.
This song, “Wind, Hail, and Snow” is the beginning of the Winter portion. The song is one of the inevitable decisions that must be made and the love story is now starting to end.
From 2010 until 2016 Kristian went under the moniker Ramblin’ Pan. This project was an Alt-Country, Folk sound that was heavily influenced by Ryan Adams, Mumford, and Sons, and Johnny Cash. He released 1 EP, “A Prodigals Tale” and 1 self-titled LP under the moniker.
His musical palette falls between the lines of indie-folk, singer-songwriter, and Americana. Fans of Gregory Alan Isakov, Iron and Wine, and Jason Isbell, will feel comfortable here.
Kristian is currently releasing his first full-length record, “For everything, there is a season” one song at a time. The new album is a concept record based on the 4 seasons Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. The plot is a love story that starts in Spring and weaves through the other seasons leading to a breakup in the Winter. There are 12 songs, 3 for each season and Kristian is currently releasing 1 song a month for the next year starting in March 2021. The album was recorded in Kansas City, MO, and Claas P Jambor was the producer.
He also went on several national tours in various coffee shops and venues across the USA. In the summer of 2016, Kristian decided to take a break from music after years of constant touring and some deeply traumatic family experiences.
In 2019, Kristian had several life changes; including moving to Asheville,NC, getting married and working through the healing process of the traumatic family events he experienced before his break in 2016. In August of 2020, he finished recording an album that was started in 2016.
The new album is a concept record based on the 4 seasons Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. The plot is a love story that starts in Spring and weaves through the other seasons leading to a breakup in the Winter. Although it ends as a sad story, it’s a story that will resonate with many others and hopefully can be a healing balm of hope
Kristian Phillip Valentino works best on Country Americana, Indie folk, Indie pop, Singer-songwriter, Creative, Experimental, Good vibes, Unique, Indie, Meaningful lyrics, Original, Early project, On stage experience, and Unsigned artist.
