MV & EE
MV & EE houses Matt ‘mv’ Valentine, once from Tower Recordings, and Erika ‘ee’ Elder, the CEO of Heroine Celestial Agriculture/The MV & EE Medicine Show. They live with their dog Zuma in Vermont. The two run Child of Microtones, a small-run artist edition record label.
“Matt Valentine has been a leading light of the American underground free/freak-folk scene for well over a decade. From his early work at the helm of New York’s legendary Tower Recordings ensemble to his long-running collaboration with partner Erika Elder in MV & EE, Valentinefuses elements of traditional folk, blues, and American psychedelic rock into an idiosyncratic playing style that has garnered an international cult following over the years. In addition to Valentine’s countless collaborations with American underground artists like Sunburned Hand of the Man’s John Moloney, Vibracathedral Orchestra’s Mick Flower, New England drum prodigy Chris Corsano, and J Mascis.” -Max Burke, Altered Zones
