Listen to Valley Queen's Natalie Carol perform and chat for WCPO Lounge Acts in the podcast player.

Oft-compared to the ethereal warblings of Florence Welch and Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries, Natalie Carol’s voice is unforgettable. As the frontwoman of Valley Queen, she’s the driving force behind a sound that is quintessentially California.

To round out their lineup, she’s accompanied by Neil Wogensen (bass/vocals), Shawn Morones (guitar/vocals) and Mike DeLuccia (drums). Their latest album, Supergiant, features songs like “Chasing the Muse” with a rolling rhythm and steady guitar riffs: it’s a classic-meets-modern kind of rock perfect for this millennium's Fleetwood Mac lovers. Like the album’s name, Valley Queen is a bright shining star - a “galactic perspective” for an earthbound force, Valley Queen wraps up a nationwide tour this May in their home state of California.

Just what we need to push through the doldrums of this weird, is-it-winter-or-is-it-spring-yet time of year.
