Trio Valore formed in 2008 by Steve White and Damon Minchella. Originally featuring Seamus Beaghan and then Justin Shearn, the band are joined for this very special performance on keyboards by Tom Manning.
When the band released their debut album on the Italian label Record Kicks, they were an instant hit on the dance floors of Europe touring extensively in Italy, Spain and Croatia as well as many successful UK shows. In 2010 the band followed up with the fantastic liars and cheaters EP which received extensive radio play. Trio Valore have been described as having heavyweight roots in funk, jazz, soul and the modernist tradition combined with exemplary musicianship.
Damon Minchella formed Ocean Colour Scene, going on to sell over 3 million albums and racking up several Brit Awards and nominations before leaving in 2004. He has performed with a whole host of other artists, including Paul Weller, The Who, Dr John, Jimmy Page, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse, Noel and Liam Gallagher, Paolo Nutini, Damien Saez, Rose Gary, Gerri Halliwell, Chad Smith and currently records and tours with the Grammy and Ivor Novello winning Richard Ashcroft.
Damon is also a Dr of Music and currently produces and writes for Various Artists Management, whose roster includes Tom Grennan, Ashnikko and The Libertines.
