Victoria Vox is an award-winning songwriter and performer. Originally from Green Bay, WI, Vox has lived in France, England, Nashville, Baltimore, and now resides in Costa Mesa, CA.
Vox is an ‘ukulele-toting award-winning songwriter and performer. With a passion for songwriting since she was 10, (first on keyboard, then on guitar), she studied at the Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA) and in 2003, she took up the ukulele as her main accompaniment. Her acoustic music style shifted to chanson tinged with jazz, which, over the years, has settled in nicely with her pop songwriting flair. She loves to make an audience laugh…and cry. Her songs are genuine, sometimes quirky, spanning a wide array of emotions. Since the release of her first ukulele album in 2006 (… and her Jumping Flea), Vox has been one of the leading songwriters on the ukulele scene, featured on the covers of Ukulele Magazine (U.S.) and Uke Mag (U.K.). She has been on festival line ups with other top-notch ukers: James Hill, Daniel Ho, Jake Shimabukuro, Brittni Paiva, and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. However, she straddles into the folk scene as well, where she has opened for Jackson Browne, Tom Chapin, Leo Kottke, and Cheryl Wheeler.
She performs mostly as a one-woman-band, incorporating a loop pedal and bass effect on her ukulele, while taking her own solos (on mouth-trumpet), and cutting through it all with her genuine lyrics and pure voice. A stage name can be a becoming thing. “Vox” (in latin) means voice, and along with her care for the environment (1% for the Planet Member), she has written and donated songs to the American Aspergers Association and the Duchenne Foundation.
