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.

"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."
