Laura S Valle

Utilizing compositional inspiration from Jazz, Latin Jazz, Pop, Bossa Nova, and other contemporary styles, this Argentinian artist now residing in Orange County, CA, creates an eclectic fusion of international sounds.  Laura’s voice is often described as delicate, smooth and soulful and she sings in six different languages besides English and her native Spanish. Her natural and inviting delivery has charmed audiences since the start of her career in Argentina and then in Europe where she toured with Tango and Latin Jazz Bands during the late 90’s. 

Laura spent her early years intensely involved in the cultural life of Buenos Aires performing theatre and singing, then moved to Europe and toured with several bands while studying music in Switzerland. After graduating from the Music Academy of Basel in Switzerland, she moved to southern California in 2002 and formed her Latin jazz band, featuring Juan Pedro Estanga, Paul Perez, and John Chiodini.  Traveling back to her native Buenos Aires, Laura regularly performs and records with producers Juan Estanga and Juan Pablo Lazo. From this collaborative effort, “Perlas”, Laura’s debut album created in 2007, is a rousing mix of Flamenco, Jazz, Tango, and Folkloric-inspired songs.

Since she moved to California she has been performing in numerous jazz clubs, large events such as the “Tango Cinema” at the Museum of Latin American Art Long Beach, “Tangos y Huaynos” at the Ford Amphitheater Los Angeles 2012, the IV C. Gardel Tango Festival, Los Angeles 2005, Make Music Pasadena 2013 to name a few.  Laura Valle has partnered herself with some of Southern California’s best musicians to assist in realizing her latest album “Charismatic”: Sal Cracchiolo, Ron Kobayashi, Bill Hartel, Sam Montooth, and Isaac Sanchez bring out the sultry, elegant vocal styles of Laura Valle with a professional, mature dynamic. A blend of Jazz, upbeat Pop, Funk, Latin jazz, Bossa Nova and Soul,” Charismatic” features upbeat and spirited songs, which touch on subjects such as romantic relationships and human values. “The Essence is Inside” was premiered in Youtube in November 2018 with a video that features Laura strolling along a magical southern California river trail.


"Charismatic is a truly fitting title to Laura Valle's new studio release. In fact, this talented singer has loads of charisma, and she is able to create a spontaneous, seamless and natural combination of jazz and pop. Her voice is versatile and almost hypnotic. At times, she can sound sultry and deep, but she also knows how to brighten and liven up the mix with her unique dynamics." Jazz Corner News

"Charismatic appeals to a wide audience with sultry vocals, upbeat tempos, smooth walking bass, and expert piano melodies. By utilizing songwriting in multiple styles, Laura Valle can transverse the musical field with a mature, professional approach capturing the true essence of jazz and the desire to connect with her audience." Lee Callaghan
