Kristian Phillip Valentino brunch show

September 23, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Kristian Phillip Valentino will release Happily Ever After, a five-song collection of love songs, on Friday, September 22.

In celebration, Kristian will perform a FREE brunch show at Citizen Vinyl on Saturday, September 23, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

Kristian is a 2022 NewSong Music Finalist, and Happily Ever After is being released on the NewSong Recordings label. The project was recorded at Citizen Studios, located within Citizen Vinyl in downtown Asheville. The studio has historic ties to the Asheville music scene, as well as to Western North Carolina radio, and is helmed by Gar Ragland, the president and co-founder of NewSong Music, and founder and CEO of Citizen Vinyl.

Initially, Kristian had three songs, but he told Gar that he wanted to record five. The original set of songs included album opener “Out of My Head,” about the first time you see that person with whom you fall in love, and end track “Find You Sooner.”
