The Virginia music scene continues to grow and find its own sound. From the successful scenes down south in Virginia Beach and Richmond to the budding northern scene that is often times lumped in with the District due to their close proximity.
Lou Val is the latest DMV artist to step up to the plate and try to spread his name. With a distinct voice, aggressive flow and vast lyrical content, the Alexandria native continues to impress. His latest release comes in the form of a five-track EP entitled Naked Trees.
Val links up with Ohio based producer Lazy Knuckles, who handles the entirety of the production. The lack of features allows listeners to soak in the 22-year-old upstart with few distractions. You can hear the emotion in Val’s voice as he speaks on love lost, past friendships and his son and family. Check out Naked Trees below.
