The Valantry is a musical project many years and many roads in the making. Three brothers, Ryan, Travis, and Brandon Walter conceived the project in 2012 while living together in an old beach house they rented in Venice Beach.
Then known as 16 Sparrows, the brothers enlisted the underground Dutch pianist and vocalist, Madelon Timmers, to fill out the sound with piano and harmonies, and balance the brothers with her grace. After releasing their debut self-titled EP they toured Europe and the western coast of America.
While always being involved in various musical endeavors over the years, ranging from garage punk and metal, to soft jazz and Cindy Lauper covers, they crafted their sounds, sometimes together and sometimes separate. Then, as families tend to do when they are fortunate enough to follow their own paths, those paths eventually lead to the same place.
For the Walter brothers that place was creating music together. The Valantry creates intriguing songs with rich harmonies and adventurous melodies. Music created out of love, family, fervor, and steady credence.
