Multi-instrumentalist Valerie Brown mainly focuses on singing, playing acoustic guitar and keyboards nowadays, but originally began as a flutist and piccolo player (hailing from Pocatello, Idaho City). After dropping out of a Portland college during the early '70s, Brown joined a local group called Moonstone, for which she served as a singer, guitarist, flutist, and percussionist. The band enjoyed some regional success, before Brown left to form a three part vocal harmony group, Betty Romaine. 1999 saw the release of Brown's solo debut on Louie Records, Uneasy Sleep, while she has also contributed to recordings by other artists - J. Michael Kersey's Suite for the Columbia Gorge, R. Moore's Nowhatnow, People's Choice's Turn Me Loose, and Dave Storrs & the Tone Sharks' Ten Stories.
