“V” aka Valvin Roane II, a New Jersey native, has set a solid foundation on the underground music scene as a solo artist. A few years back V’s debut album, "The Revelation Is Now Televised" quietly made waves in and around key independent soul music circles. The internet buzzed about this album that consisted of conscious lyrics, booming bass lines, romantic ballads and soulful melodies. However, little was known about the man behind this rousing collection of songs whose musical career has garnered work with the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff, Justin Timberlake and Musiq Soulchild to name a few. Before stepping out on his own, V worked on projects with a host of renowned artists and producers in the music industry, such as those previously mentioned and also Jill Scott, Will Smith, Silk, Anthony Hamilton and Heather Headley. His songwriting, singing and producing talents in the Soul and R&B genres have gained him comparisons to such talents as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway. In the past, V toured the world, performing house music tunes with DJ Jazzy Jeff, and most recently as the lead background vocalist for Jill Scott.
V somehow managed to find the time to work on his own albums while touring extensively with Ms. Scott for the past 7 years! His latest projects are mostly self- produced gems, laden with songs ranging from easy going club bangers to those focusing on more serious issues involving relationships, as well as the socially conscious and spiritually driven that provided a well-rounded picture of His Artistry! Injecting his personal experiences in life and love into melody and words, V continues to make a universal impact on the world through songs!
