"In a musical landscape that struggles to produce artists with a unique and innovative vision, Victoria Vox and her ukulele are a definite breath of fresh air." - Music Monthly

Victoria Vox may not have had much of an audience as a 10-year-old, but that didn’t stop her from writing and recording her first songs in her bedroom in small-town, Wisconsin. Vox has always known it was her destiny to perform, but didn’t find her true voice in performing until after tackling a Casio keyboard, violin, oboe, trumpet, guitar, bass and now, ukulele.

Missing her junior prom in high school, Vox traveled overseas as a foreign exchange student to rural France where she bought her first guitar. A new instrument and an inspirational environment turned her away from her keyboard top-40 musings and band-geek rut, encouraging a more therapeutic and purposeful songwriting method.

Vox continued her higher education at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. A degree in songwriting was right up her alley, plus, the male-to-female ratio was 6-1! Meticulous about honing her craft, the then pink-haired “conservative” punk-rocker worked on tweaking her songs, and was later rewarded in the form of a Berklee Achievement Scholarship and the Vince Gill Songwriting Award.

After graduating in 2000, Vox moved to Nashville but soon decided to dodge the grits, sold everything she owned and jumped the pond to London, England. Six concentrated months later she returned to the states and started touring regionally in the Midwest selling her home-made recordings from her trunk.

In May of 2003, she quit her “not-at-all-missed-retail-job” in Green Bay, founded her own publishing company, Obus Music, and took to the road full time, sharing her songs and infectious smile from Los Angeles to London. It was in late 2004 when Victoria was given a ukulele and she ran with the idea as soon as she saw the fan’s response to the toy-like instrument.

In February of 2006, Vox released Victoria Vox and Her Jumping Flea to rave reviews. On her first Hawaiian tour in support of the album, Vox was offered sponsorship by KoAloha Ukuleles out of Honolulu.

Chameleon is Vox’s latest album and for the first time, she has mixed her ukulele ditties with the guitar songs on one album – for a new sound that is uniquely and seamlessly her own. Her song "C'est Noyé" was awarded first place in the International Acoustic Music Awards 2009.

I first discovered the music of Victoria Vox by chance. On May 4, 2007 I read in the local paper that Mindy Smith was playing at the historic Attucks Theater in Downtown Norfolk, VA with local Julie Clark slated to open. Being an admirer of Mindy Smith’s work and having heard a lot of good things about Julie Clark I decided to go, not to mention wanting to see the inside of the recently restored Attucks. So I get there, and as I am walking through the lobby I see Julie Clark socializing; so I go into the auditorium to find my seat. While I’m waiting for the show to start, a young blond woman comes on the stage and is checking the intonation of a guitar and am wondering who the cute blond is. A few minutes later I see Julie Clark take a seat a few rows in front of me, so I’m thinking who is opening? Come to find out that “guitar tech” was opening act Victoria Vox. By the end of the set, she had gained at least one more fan.
I’m the quiet type anyway, but after the show when I finally worked up the nerve to ask her to sign my cds I was mumbling so much she thought I said my name was David instead of Danny. Luckily before I could embarrass myself too much, the lights started flashing indicating Mindy Smith was starting because she said “I guess is time to go back inside” I agreed so I held the door for her to go in then went and found my seat. Hopefully she didn’t think I was too much of a weirdo.
With a mixture of songs on guitar and ukulele, Chameleon once again showcases her talents as a songwriter (not to mention her wonderful voice and great personality, which is also evident with her stage presence and her interaction with fans.) “Falling Star” is not only my favourite song on the cd it is quite possibly my favourite song period, “C’est Noye” is a beautiful song sung in French of which you can see video of on YouTube. “ Five..Four,” “Damn Venus,” and “From the Outside” are three more of my favourites. “What’s Wrong” is a fun song which will probably have you singing along. I could go on about all of the songs, but that would be too much to read.
I have all of her cd’s: Ultra Pink, Still, Tres Femmes (with her friends Stolie and Kellie Lin Knott), in between, Her Jumping Flea and this one and am already wanting a follow up to Chameleon. While I’m waiting I’ll be learning to play the uke and speak French, both of which I’ve been inspired to do because of her music.

Wonderful talent. I had the pleasure of performing on the same stage, going on before her at a coffee house in Danbury Ct. She was GREAT!Bought one of her cd's as soon as I got home after seeing her perform. Natural talent, Wonderful voice you will you enjoy listening to all day. Thank you Victoria,hope I get to see you perform again if your ever back this way. Al Rivoli rivman679@comcast.net

Saw her on Youtube.. instantly fell in love with her vocals and ukelele.
So here I am, one album richer than before.
Money well spent.

C'est Noyé is worth the money alone.
The only problem with this album is that I cant see her smile like she does, performing Peeping Tomette, at Lizard Lounge on Youtube.
A small price to pay, you'd think.. until you accually see it. Bliss.

At least now I can have the songs on repeat.
Forever.
