Victoria Vox, is an award-winning, ukulele-toting, performing songwriter. Releasing "ukulele albums" since 2006, Vox has been one of the leading songwriters on the ukulele scene and three-time cover girl for Ukulele Magazine (USA) and UKE Mag (U.K.). Vox performs mostly as a one-woman-band, incorporating a loop pedal and bass effect on her Low G ukulele.
Vox is also known for her “mouth trumpet”; a Jazz-era vocal technique emulating the sound of a horn. This odd and quirky talent, nonetheless, landed her on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2009 where she was invited to blow her own horn. In 2015, Vox was featured on the front page (bottom half) of the Wall Street Journal as a leader in the mouth trumpet “revival”. She also writes songs in French, and her music has been used in indie films and heard on indie radio around the globe.
Anything is possible with a ukulele and her infectious pop-folk-jazz style. She loves to make an audience laugh...and cry. Her songs are genuine, sometimes quirky, spanning a wide array of emotions. Originally from Green Bay, WI, Vox has lived in France, England, Nashville, Baltimore, and now resides in Costa Mesa, CA.
Victoria Vox’s new album, Nirvana in REM, is an audio-visual experience of 10 original songs inspired by 20 works of art by visionary artist Fred Stonehouse. “These new songs have an atmospheric quality that is deeply emotional and psychological, as well as hauntingly poetic,” says Stonehouse about Vox’s music. Together, they explore the connection between reality and the nonsensical world of dream logic.
“Nirvana in REM is a stunning and exceptionally well-made collection of 10 original songs… a wonderous musical work of art… ”
“When two skilled artists meet, miracles can happen. Nirvana in REM captivated me immediately. In short: contemporary narrative songs set to atmospheric music in a stylish version. Be surprised by both artists.”
