Victoria Vox is an award-winning songwriter and performer from Green Bay, Wis., who has lived in France, England, Nashville, Baltimore, and now in Costa Mesa, Calif.
An ukulele-toting award-winning songwriter and performer who started writing songs at age 10, she studied at the Berklee College of Music. In 2003, she took up the ukulele as her main accompaniment. Her acoustic music style shifted to chanson tinged with jazz, which, over the years, has settled in nicely with her pop songwriting flair.
She loves to make an audience laugh … and cry. Her songs are genuine, sometimes quirky, spanning a wide array of emotions. Since the release of her first ukulele album in 2006 (… and her Jumping Flea), Vox has been one of the leading songwriters on the ukulele scene, featured on the covers of Ukulele Magazine (U.S.) and Uke Mag (U.K.).
She performs mostly as a one-woman-band, incorporating a loop pedal and bass effect on her ukulele, while taking her own solos (on mouth-trumpet), and cutting through it all with her genuine lyrics and pure voice.
Her 10th album, Colorful Heart, is consistently eclectic, as her previous albums were. Anything is possible with a ukulele, and Victoria Vox is proof.
