    Biography :

    The Valentines were founded by three girls from Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada named Miki Shannon, Irene Butler, and Joy Findlay. In 1960 a four member was added named Nancy Davis and in May or June of 1960 they went into studio of Iona records at 6035, Le Doux Road in Los Angeles to sing back up on a Les Voigt session that saw a release in July.

    This led to more session work and are almost certainly he reason why they were called in to do session by themselves in October-November 1960. At the time, Irene who had married Les Vogt was pregnant and left the group shortly after the session. The Songs "The Sock" and "16 Senoritas" saw release in late November. The three remaining girls continued to perform live and did radio and TV shows with the local success their records (hit #3 in the local hit parade) had until they broke up in 1962.
