Late 2019 / early 2020 will see the release of the new album, Adrift in Acheron, taken from book one in The Confessions of a Leamingtonian series.
Lavinia "The Raveness" Valeriana (Italian-Catalan-Argentine and Welsh-Breton) is a Stratford-upon-Avon born Leamington Spa raised and proudly based self-made (dark-romantic) avant-garde musician and confessional diarist, and artisan. Lavinia or "Vinnie" had an itinerant upbringing travelling between Warwickshire and heritage lands. The self-taught classical (overdrive and distortion-licked) harpsichordist turned multi-instrumentalist who is completely deaf in her right ear, did debut with her immersive music in December 2000, two weeks after her thirteenth birthday and confessional (multilingual and unorthodox) diaries in January 2006, at just turned eighteen years. Vinnie's verse has snuck up as a quote in the books of bestselling authors and inspired others, and many linked to her roots have inspired her, particularly Dante Alighieri, William Shakespeare, Giacomo Casanova, and Aleister Crowley. She is blatantly introverted (by choice) and prefers obscurity but has gained global success for near two decades, in-spite-of-being unequivocally relaxed and with a nonchalant shrug to the mainstream rituals that don't appeal to or fit the comfort of her nature.
