Valeria Pozzo – incredibly talented singer/songrwriter and instrumentalist is the Global Voice of well-known Italian brand Peroni Nastro Azzurro singing an English/Italian version of ‘Here Comes The Sun’ which was recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
But that’s not the only claim to fame for this Classically trained Violinist and all round musician.

2011 – The MOVE TO LONDON
For most people a move to another country is an overwhelming proposition, but Valeria takes it all in her stride…

VALERIA POZZO EP – Here I Live and Breathe
In February 2014 Valeria released her debut EP ‘Here I live and Breathe’ collaborating with the Italian producer Marco Anzovino and songwriter Samantha Jones. Since the release of her album, she has been gigging regularly in the UK, in Italy, in Belgium and Spain.
Her song “FORGIVE” is just one of the most beautiful trAcks
The EP consists of Four Tracks and conveys Valeria’s inimitable laid-back contemporary style with ballads and the more upbeat song Candles and Champagne. However, for me the title track Here I Live and Breathe and track4 – The One That You Choose get the big vote on this EP – the lyrics in the verses of track 4 are so well crafted and identifiable that it warrants hitting re-play – but the absolute jewel in Valeria’s musical crown is not on the EP ….. .
FORGIVE – VALERIA POZZO – SOUNDCLOUD
FORGIVE .. is just one of THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TRACKS you could wish to hear and is a credit to Valeria’s talent as an incredibly accomplished songwriter, perrformer and musician .
When I first heard this song .. I replayed it over and over again .. it’s got an International .. maybe more correctly , a contemporary European Style about it .. it’s the kind of song you could imagine lovers listening to on a warm sunny afternoon by an Italian lake .. or any lake .. or anywhere .. it’s a song that conjures up beautiful images and of course, the sentiment is one which sends a good and positive message and listening to the sound of Valeria’s voice whilst just taking some time-out is immensely relaxing.
Valeria is making “FORGIVE” available to everyone and is sharing the link on her Facebook page.
For those of you who haven’t heard the song yet .. there is a link ref at the bottom of this page along with details of how to connect to Valeria … we promise .. you won’t be disappointed with what you hear.
