With a passion for songwriting, Victoria Vox began writing songs when she was ten. She furthered her music education at the Berklee College of Music, as a vocal principle with an emphasis in Songwriting. A few years after graduating, Vox took up the ukulele. Her music style shifted to chanson tinged with jazz, which, over the years, has settled in nicely with her pop songwriting flair. With 10 albums under her belt (as an unsigned artist), Victoria continues to grow and hone her craft. She’s very personable on stage, though a bit shy at times, she’s goofy and engaging, and likes to make people laugh. But as soon as she opens her mouth to sing, the emotion and inspiration pour out of her melodic and cleverly written songs, and it becomes undeniable that she is genuine and full of heart.
On a lighter note, she also has perfected the Mouth-Trumpet which, to some, is considered a form of “beat-boxing”. Vox takes improvisational solos echoing the tones of trumpet genius, Chet Baker, solely with her voice. This odd and quirky talent, nonetheless, landed her on the Jay Leno Show (2009) and on the front page of the Wall Street Journal (2015).
Her 10th album, Colorful Heart, is consistently eclectic, as her previous albums, however, a new sound is achieved in her songwriting. Anything is possible with a ukulele, and Victoria Vox is proof.
