"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.
