West Sound Ukulele Festival Workshops and performers
Victoria Vox Performer and Workshop Instructor
From the cover of the Spring Issue of Ukulele Magazine to the front page of The Wall Street Journal, Victoria Vox is making appearances everywhere—and rightly so. The artistry of her performances is both unique and endearing, captivating an incredibly diverse audience and drawing even the least musical of folks into her harmonious web. With the release of her 9th album, When the Night Unravels, Victoria’s blending of singing-songwriting with her rousing mouth trumpeting and uke jamming is too irresistible to ignore.
Vox earned a degree in songwriting from the Berklee College of Music (2001), mostly accompanying her songs with guitar. Then in 2003 a friend gave her a ukulele, and the small, four-stringed instrument proved to be the unexpected, but welcomed vehicle to showcase the upbeat, rhythmic drive that is characteristic of her music. Originally from Green Bay WI, via Baltimore MD, she is newly based out of Costa Mesa CA, but tours across the USA and internationally at venues and festivals which celebrate original music, French music, and/or the ukulele.
“Vox is a romantic, a poet, and a ukulele lover, and [When the Night Unravels] is an album you’ll share with friends—whether they like ukulele or not.” - Ukulele Magazine
“Supermoon has you falling in love before the first minute of the track is through, with snaps and a smooth melody, prepping you for more Motown-inspired harmonies on the rest of the album. Vox’s ability to build these compositions around her ukulele creates a relaxed album that’s calming and sexy. There is so much honesty within the album’s musical and lyrical composure that it’s impossible not to get sucked in.” – What Weekly
