Giada Valenti, born and raised in Venice, Italy. In the US she is often compared with Diana Krall, Caterina Valente and Connie Francis. In Italy they often say she sounds like Mina and Orenella Vanoni. After her music got serious interest from a major record label in 2004, she spends most of her time in New York. In December 2005, Giada’s self-released CD Italian Signorina was launched in the USA to great reviews.
