Welcome to Valerie Troutt Projects
Valerie Troutt JazzSoul Vocalist, Composer, Live Music Preservationist
“This age of American Idol and Disney-approved singers has no room for a big, brassy woman who takes no shit and can really belt one out. From Big Mama Thornton to Etta James all the way to Patti Labelle, every generation has had one but ours. It's like when Chuck D asked all those years ago, "Who stole the soul?" Thank goddess for Valerie Troutt and the Fear Of a Fat Planet Crew. During college Valerie was mentored by jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves, Troutt approaches R&B standards, house grooves, and her original socially conscious jazz and soul compositions with the verve of the missing masters.” -D. Scot Miller, S.F. Weekly.
Valerie's Debut Album "The Sound of Peace" is now available on Itunes
"The Sound of Peace"
features refreshing original compositions
and soul stirring JazzSoul arrangements.
