Parissa Tosif and David Ansari are Canberra/Seattle-based electronic duo Vallis Alps.

Their music blends down-tempo, piano-driven melodies and acoustic guitar with 80's pop synths and gritty trap beats to compliment their half-nostalgic, half-foretelling lyrics.

Since releasing their independent self-titled debut EP in Jan 2015, the pair's mesmerizing tunes have clocked over 2+ million SoundCloud plays (27, 000 of which appeared in the first 24 hours) and peaked at #1 on Hype Machine upon release. On the strength of their music alone, Vallis Alps were named as triple j Unearthed, AIR and FBi Radio feature artists and were more recently included as Zan Rowe's 'Song You Need To Hear' on CBC's Public Radio Picks. They also continued to make their mark on the Aus iTunes Electronic Album and Singles Chart for 'Young' at #2 and #23 respectively, debuting in the Top 100 ARIA singles chart – an impressive feat for a new independent act.

Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Matt Mason knew from an early age that his home would one day be Nashville, Tennessee. His earliest memories of his musical aspirations are going the Grand Ole Opry with his family, and telling his Dad that he wanted to play there someday. So by the time he was eleven he was playing guitar and singing whenever he got a chance. Early on, his influences came from the gospel music of his family's small church and the sounds of the late great Elvis Presley. Today those influences still hold true, along with the music of Waylon Jennings, Garth Brooks, Merle Haggard and other country greats.
