"When I first saw Kiyomi on stage I felt a star presence I had not felt since first meeting Queen Latifah" – Tommy Boy Founder and CEO Tom Silverman
Wow. right? Well, come May 11 in the US–and April 14 for lucky Canadians–you too can hear what all the fuss is about, when the trio's debut 7-track album, Lesson From The Late Night is released. (Don't know Hunter Valentine? Think Green Day, Sleater-Kinney, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Joan Jett.)
Fans are already familiar with Hunter Valentine thanks to steady gigging (often with labelmates, The Cliks) and the summer release of the their super fan-friendly live DVD, We're Here To Recruit You, shot at New York City’s legendary Stonewall Inn on the 40th anniversary of the historic Stonewall Riots.
Check out Hunter Valentine's “The Stalker” video by Taylor Cohen (he did Matt & Kim’s “Lessons Learned”) on YouTube. Hunter Valentine gigs: Canada April 7 - 17, Toronto Pride July 3, US summer 2010.
