An award-winning, ukulele-toting, performing songwriter, Victoria Vox started out singing in coffeeshops, backyards, and thrift-stores from Seattle to Baltimore. Since the release of her first ukulele album in 2006 (Victoria Vox and her Jumping Flea), 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.). She has shared the bill with ukulele greats such as Jake Shimabukuro and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, as well as songwriters Jackson Browne and Jane Wiedlin. Over the years, she continued to evolve and reinvent her sound while incorporating the ukulele. She now performs mostly as a one-woman-band, using a loop pedal and bass effect on her Low G ukulele.  

Vox, who also plays the trumpet, is more 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 and a feature on the front page (bottom half) of the Wall Street Journal

Vox’s latest 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. 

Vox is a member of 1% For the Planet and has donated songs for causes like the American Asperger’s Association and the Duchenne Foundation. Her songs are genuine, sometimes quirky, spanning a wide array of emotions. Anything is possible with a ukulele, and Victoria Vox is proof. Originally from Green Bay, WI, Vox has lived in France, England, Nashville, Baltimore, and now resides in Costa Mesa, CA.  

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.”
