  2. NOT ENOUGH – New Music Video LIVE NOW


    June 21, 2018 by Val

    WATCH ON YOUTUBE:   Director/DP: Ricardo Kuettel Producer: Brenna MacPherson Editor: Scott Owsley Colorist: Dave Colonna Casting: Rhoda Gunn Male Lead: Andrew Hoilett ( @longlivedrew on instagram) I would like to personally thank THE PEOPLE OF SASKATCHEWAN, whom partially funded this video through their tax dollars, which were awarded to me in the form of a marketing grant through the current government funding body “Creative Saskatchewan”. 50% of the costs for the video were funded by the grant award, and 50% was funded independently (by me!) I appreciate having that opportunity provided to me by my community, and work daily to do whatever I can to put my own energy or assistance that I can offer back into that same community, to ensure you are always seeing a return on your investment! I am a strong believer in the importance of funding for the Arts, as I believe that artistic creation is a resource and asset to our country, culture, and people, and something that has value and meaning beyond what may or may not hold monetary value within a commercial market place. Thank you again to all those I have received support from to continue making music! I hope …

  5. New Video Posted – Promise Not to Cry


    February 5, 2015 by Val

    Val Halla © 2014 http://valhallaonline.com Written by Val Halla, Andre Kaden Black, and Dane Hartsell. – I wrote this song a few years ago with friends of mine, who all know the experience of having to leave a loved one for a time, or what its like to watch someone else leave – whether for a short time, or sometimes for good. On December 10th, 2014 I learned of the passing of a dear friend back home in Saskatchewan, while I was in Nashville at the time. The plan was to continue on to Chicago before getting back home to Canada for Christmas, but I debated if I should continue on my musical pursuits, or get back to Saskatchewan in time for his memorial service on December 16th. I wanted to be there to honour him, I wanted to be there to grieve. I wanted to be with those hurting back home. I knew Derek would have wanted me to stay on the grind though, and keep trucking for the music’s sake. So I did go to Chicago… and I dedicated this performance to him and his memory, and everything he stood for in our hard working little music community …

We have formed the MHL – the Musician’s Hockey League here in Regina, Sk. and we are inviting all those who play hockey, music, or just simply love both – to come out and join. We will ask for your instrument of choice and any bands you may have once or currently (or in future plan to) play in, or if you would like to get on board with “Roadie Status” We currently have ice time once every two weeks, with TODAY (SUnday April 27th) being our second ice time, at 9pm sharp at the Cooperators Arenas. I am mentioning this on my website, even though I know more than just locals might come by here, because hockey has been one of the great loves of my life – in addition to music. However I have spent my who life pursuing music up until this point, and so I decided to make a small spot in my routine for some hockey I decided to become a Goalie at the age of 29, with having never even played hockey before in my life. I am now fully equipped and …

  10. A Thank You video from Rock School Kabul to Supporters


    November 19, 2013 by Val

    We were sent this video from the students at Rock School Kabul, and would like to also extend our thanks to everyone who came out and supported, or sponsored, or was involved in the benefit we held in December of 2012 at The Exchange in Regina.  The evening was called “Keep on Rockin’ In the Free World” and featured many musical acts and was graced by many sponsors.  We were able to send all the money raised as well as over 50 music lesson books, and also some small instruments over to the students and they can even be seen in the video footage here:       We strongly hope that people continue to support the Rock School and that the students have all the resources, time, and freedom to express themselves and be creative and artistic in their musical endeavours.
