In concert their energy and charisma earn them rave reviews from audiences who can't get enough of the blissful live experiences. With their tasteful blend of irresistible pop hooks, emotional lyrics, and anthemic choruses, Saints of Valory are a must-see live act that ticket buyers will be talking about for years to come.
Singer and bassist Gavin Jasper and guitarist Godfrey Thomson struck up a childhood friendship in Jasper's native Rio de Janiero, Brazil, while their parents were working as missionaries. They bonded over their love for music and kept in touch for years, even after their families went their separate ways. In 2008 they reunited in Rio de Janiero, with Thomson bringing along his friend, French drummer Gerard Labou. The trio posted several early songs on Myspace and relocated to Austin, TX after attracting attention from U.S. independent record labels. Keyboardist Stephen Buckle joined their lineup in 2010, just in time for the band's debut EP Bright Lights. In 2012 their sophomore EP Kids landed on iTunes' Top Rocks Albums Chart and they were named one of Billboard's Top Unsigned Artists. The following year they inked a deal with Atlantic Records that resulted in two more EPs -- 2013's Possibilities and 2014's V. The band has gained major traction on the live circuit with show-stopping appearances at festivals including South by Southwest and Coachella, and they've toured with Mumford & Sons, One Republic, and Phillip Phillips. With a highly anticipated debut full-length album in the works, ticket buyers are chomping at the bit to see this buzzworthy band in concert.
