Honey Owens has been an important figure in the Portland experimental music scene for more than 10 years, collaborating with an array of both oscure and well-known music projects including World, Nudge, Dark Yoga and Jackie-O Motherfucker. Blood is Clean is the debut release under the name Valet and is due for release on kranky on April 16th.


The songs were formed out of a natural and spontaneous process as separate incidents of recording over a 5 month period from January to May of 2006. They were recorded by and large in single, live takes with minor additional tracking added here and there. The results are at once spare and expansive; exploratory, yet deceptively simple.  Honey Owens lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
