Victoria Vox is an award-winning songwriter & performer. Originally from Green Bay, WI, Vox has lived in France, England, Nashville, Baltimore, & now resides in Costa Mesa, CA.
Vox is a ukulele-toting, award-winning songwriter & 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) & in 2003, she took up the ukulele as her main accompaniment.
Since the release of her first ukulele album in 2006 (& her Jumping Flea), Vox has been one of the leading songwriters on the ukulele scene (Ukulele Magazine, front cover & feature article).
However, she straddles into the folk scene as well, where she’s opened for Jackson Browne, Tom Chapin, Leo Kottke, & Cheryl Wheeler.
Victoria performs mostly as a one-woman-band, incorporating a loop pedal & bass effect on her ukulele, while taking her own solos (on mouth-trumpet), & cutting through it all with her genuine lyrics & pure voice.
“Get in the Groove”
In this very hands-on, all-level ukulele class, we’ll play around with different rhythms & grooves. Over a simple chord progression we’ll work on loosening up the right hand for fun strums! The groove even starts before you play a note!
We’ll play a simple tune in many different styles: Pop / Jazz / Ska / Swing / Blues / Reggae / Opera / Bluegrass, etc.
This class is groovy,100% fun, & a bit of a right hand strumming crash course!
Victoria Vox has an original sound that’s at the same time powerful & playful, featuring smooth vocals, expert ukulele, & her perfected mouth trumpet. She takes improvisational solos echoing the tones of trumpet genius, Chet Baker, solely with her voice. This odd & quirky talent, nonetheless, landed her on the Jay Leno Show (2009) & on the front page of the Wall Street Journal (2015).
