Jorge Vallentine

(Milwaukee)
Genre: Americana

Often hard to pin down, Jorge Vallentine draws on a variety of influences to create his signature sound, which spans the spectrum between melancholy singer-songwriter and emo indie rocker. With earnest lyrics, vocals ranging from wavery whispers to full out screams, and a multifaceted guitar technique that includes tender fingerpicking, rhythmic hooks, and even chaotic, desperately fast strumming, his diverse style has drawn comparisons to artists such as Elliott Smith, Dashboard Confessional, Bright Eyes, The Spill Canvas, and Blue October.
