London-born, L.A.-based soul singer and songwriter, Desi Valentine is known for his bluesy baritone voice, unique retro R&B style, and radiant charisma. Over the last year, Desi has been a fixture at clubs around Los Angeles headlining House of Blues, the Sayers Club and bringing down the house on New Year’s Eve at The Edison with his exhilarating show fronting a hard-driving soul band equipped with horns, backup singers, the works.

In addition to Desi’s budding solo career, Concord Music Group invited Desi to be the lead vocalist on the forthcoming Stax Records reimagined album “ODP.” It’s a one-of-a-kind project that takes original analog samples from the Stax Records catalog and creates brand new songs to pay homage to the legendary label.

Desi is also the newest signing to soul publishing powerhouse Defend Music, which also houses songwriters for Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Eli Paperboy Reed.
