About Valerie Broussard

You can feel Valerie Broussard’s dynamic vocals and emotionally charged songwriting in massive smash collaborations, through hundreds of film, television, and video game placements, projected from some of the biggest stages in the world, and within her solo output. Garnering just north of half a billion total streams, her voice and pen power Kygo’s “Think About You” and “The Truth” as well as the 2019 League of Legends theme “Awaken” with Ray Chen. Her music rings out on tentpole programming across NETFLIX, The CW, ABC, Prime Video, SyFy, HBO, and more. Meanwhile, her solo output has garnered praise from Refinery29Ones To Watch, and many others. Beyond music, she remains a staunch advocate for a myriad of causes. Diagnosed with dyslexia as a kid, she fought hard to learn how to read, eventually devouring The Lord of The Rings and Harry Potter series and expanding her sci-fi and fantasy fascination any chance possible. Now, she pushes for literacy and even launched a de facto online book club, purchasing How To Be Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi for various followers to read together with her. However, there was still one final frontier left for the platinum-certified singer, songwriter, and vocal engineer to chart a course for… 

On her debut EP Voyager [AWAL], she presents her own brand of cinematic space pop uplifted by otherworldly vocals, vivid lyrics, and expansive vision.

About Nurko: 

Jack Leech always knew he would be making music, it just took a while for him to find the perfect fit. Growing up in New Jersey in a family with generations of artists, he was encouraged to be creative from birth. Picking up both drums and piano as a child and studying music in college, he applies his classical knowledge of music and music theory to buzzing genre blending sounds as Nurko.

Wanting to create a sound he hadn’t heard yet, Nurko decided to channel his emotions into a style of electronic music uniquely him, starting with his first big track, “Goodbye,” in 2015. Since then, his next release “Your Embrace,” continued to give his fans what he likes to call, “the feels.” 

In 2018 he showed no signs of slowing down with multiple singles like ‘Sunsets’, ‘Right Now’ and ‘Promise Me’ all garnering over 1 million plays on Spotify. His unofficial remix of Halsey’s hit single ‘Without Me’ surpassed 10 Million plays on the infamous tastemaker Trap Nation.

For Nurko, the melody is everything. Whether it’s in a low key trap track, or the perfect soundtrack to a your pre-game, do not mistake his music for another soon to be forgotten future bass track. Nurko makes music you can listen to on loop, discovering new layers with each play.
