With considerable talent and versatilely evident throughout, Valentine is a standout.' -Musician's Trade Journal 'Valentine's his name and we got some bluesy, jazzy, rockin' keyboards here. As the writer of this album also, a high five goes out to him for all the good work. Nice job!! ' - Boston SoundCheck Magazine 'Do yourself a favor, and pick up a copy of 'Walkin' Shoes' and find out what you've been missing.' - Indie-Music.com 'Solid song structure, unflappable delivery and beeline arranging..... The artist roots are showing above the soil. So much of this CD sounds so familiar I must have heard his work before. Perhaps somewhere in the soundtrack of my own life!' - Real Time Records.com.
