Country rock with the essence of a folk/blues touch. With a lifetime of experience, merged with a myriad of accomplishments both in the music of world and a journey-filled life, ROBERT VALENTE has run the gamut and is in line for the next marathon. "Bringing to light the hidden agenda" are words that epitomize his passion and goal. From designing clothing, to tickling the ivory with new creations, crossing the country with an acoustic guitar on board, along with his bible in hand and a message in his heart, Robert Valente is a man of wisdom and voice. Robert has cultivated both the desire and action within many cultural events. He is not a man of the "norm" but one who has trekked on "the road less traveled". He doesn't just have a story to tell through his music, he has vision to share. With songs like "Gospel Man" and "Country Singer", the words within the words are what bring the songs to light. With the listening audience wanting more to enter the place of seeking, searching and learning in the place of the holy of hollies.
