How VALÉ uses Sound to reach more fans

Currently playing a string of arena dates across the US, VALÉ is an LA based artist who joined Sound in May of 2023. To date, she's released eight songs and has appeared on the Sound Viral Chart topping song "una noche" by Angelbaby.

She was born and raised in Colombia before moving to LA. At just 20 years old, she's already grown a fanbase of over 15.5K monthly listeners on Spotify and is currently on tour, supporting The Driver Era.

Her latest track "chill like that" is one of the songs off her debut EP, 'under the sun'. The song is available as a month long open edition, and also has Free Editions available.

Being on Sound gave her a new way to monetize her music and reach true fans. Here’s what she had to say about her experience:

“releasing on sound has honestly helped me and championed me in my journey as an independent artist. you have to be your biggest fan. releasing music on chain is one of the many ways in which an artist can show that they believe in themselves, they are willing to put their art out there for others to collect and invest in. this is how you create a true community based on trust and genuine love for art!”

So far, VALÉ has generated $4,822 in volume through 639 collectors. You can mint a Limited Edition of her latest track, "chill like that" until May 16th.

We'd love for you to add Sound as a platform you consistently add to all of your release plans.
