About Valarie Barretto

Born and raised in a small town on the South Shore of Massachusetts, Valerie has enjoyed all types of music and theater from a young age. From plays, band, and chorus’ in grade school, to completing a degree in Classical Vocal Performance at the University of Massachusetts, Valerie has kept music close to her heart throughout her life.

Being known today as a country singer/songwriter, she explains “I love the raw, gritty, storyteller style of country and similar genres. I found that I always try to bring that same style into my writing and in turn, my originals. I want to be known for my lyrics more than anything. I want to tell stories in a way people remember..."

Having released her debut original album "Hurt & Healing" in September 2022, she commented "... I think a lot of people will be able to relate to the lyrics and will really connect with the songs..." A year later in September 2023, that album led to Valerie being nominated for two local music awards including "Rising Star: Massachusetts" for the 2023 New England Music Awards as well as "Country Act of the Year" for the 2023 Boston Music Awards. She is now in the process of recording a second album, The Lucky Ones EP. "It's night and day from my first album" she says. "It's cut back, raw and simple yet great storytelling about adventure, life, and friendship." Look for the solitary single “Rattlesnake Road” on June 21st, 2024 and the full EP due Summer 2024.

When she’s not writing music or performing, Valerie enjoys an array of hobbies including traveling, horseback riding, bike rides, paddle boarding, being with friends, and a good old fashioned! “I believe life is too short not to laugh, be weird, and have fun!”, she says.

Nate Ramos is a singer songwriter from Auburn, MA and currently based in Plymouth, MA. With a naturally powerful voice and detailed storytelling in his lyrics, Nate is carving a unique path in the world of music as an upcoming Americana artist.

With the release of Nate’s acoustic single, ‘Across The States’ he earned the honors of Country 102.5’s Local Catch of the Week. Where acclaimed radio personality, Carolyn Kruse had this to say about Nate and his song, “Soak in all the John Denver meets Bon Iver vibes and you’ll find yourself wanting to hear more… Ramos writes like he’s been in the music game for a long time, and his vocals are confident and strong.”

Now in 2024, Nate and his band, the Nate Ramos Band, who he performs and now records music with, are shaping up for another big year. In addition to live shows on the regular, Nate will be releasing full band singles and his debut album, 'Across The States' in June.

The Nate Ramos Band is propelled by the remarkable talents of AJ Ottino on lead guitar and backup vocals, the soothing yet powerful sound of Lilly Innella on the fiddle, and it’s all held together by the rhythmic prowess of Michael Copperwhite on drums. Taking inspiration from other artists such as Charles Wesley Godwin, Noah Kahan, and Zach Bryan, Nate and his band will continue to shape his original sound around meaningful experiences and stories that resonate.
