Valerio Lysander is a chamber pop singer/songwriter from Rome, Italy. He moved to the UK in 2013, where he refines his art and publishes three albums. Since then, he has built his career in the UK and abroad and has performed in the UK, France, Scotland, the Netherlands and Italy with his pop/folk songs influenced by classical music with quirky, original, optimist and honest lyrics, looking at the world with a full emotional spectrum.
His first self funded EP Tidal Mental Head marked the beginning of a career that in 2016 would take him to be among the 10 nominees for Best Male in the Best of British Unsigned Awards and to have a new single, Ryan, broadcasted by BBC Introducing. In 2017 he was among the finalists of the Coffee Music Project and Pride’s Got Talent, and performed in Trafalgar Square for Pride in London and on the main stage of Manchester Pride.
In 2018, a new track about the hardship of being a musician in modern society, If You Were Me You Would Be, was broadcast on BBC6 by Tom Robinson. In the same year, he performed in many European cities, including gigs for different Gay Prides and Sofar Sounds. On 21st July 2018, he released a new 13 track album, “We Are Like Coloured Moths Towards The Sunlight”, which explores the different struggles humans have to go through in their quest towards happiness, and in 2019 a new EP “When the Clouds Will Gather I Will Drink the Rain”, both of which have had singles featured on many national radios, including the BBC. In 2019 he has kept performing in Europe, with gigs in the UK, Italy, France, Germany and Norway.
With listeners all over the world, Valerio moves back to Italy in 2021, where he is in the finals of Musicultura 2022, Roma Music Festival 2021 and Premio Lunezia 2021, but he keeps his British roots, getting to the finals of Pride’s Got Talent in 2022 and performing for Pride in London in the same year.
