The Skinny: Since their inception in early 2013, Valkyries (formally Rachel Cearns & The Valkyries) have been very busy working the Adelaide music scene. Valkyries were nominated for a Music SA Award in 2013 and Rachel was nominated SA Voice of The Year in the AU Awards in 2014.

Valkyries won The A&R Department’s Indie Raw Song and as a result, headed to Sydney record a single. The single, “Inward Voyager,” was recorded at Hercules Street Studios, owned by Harry Vanda (AC/DC, Easybeats, Flash In The Pan), and was engineered and produced by Ryan Miller and Daniel Vandenberg.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
