Victoria Vox is an award-winning, ukulele-toting, performing songwriter. With a passion for writing songs since she was 10 years old, she went on to graduate with a degree in Songwriting from the Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA). In 2003, she traded in her guitar for the ukulele as her main accompaniment and took the stage name Victoria Vox (Latin for voice).
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 cover girl on both Ukulele Magazine (USA) and UKE Mag (U.K.).
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 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 has also written songs in French, and her music has been used in indie films and heard on indie radio around the globe.
Vox has performed across the U.S. (including Hawaii and Alaska), Western Europe, and Down Under (N.Z. and Australia). She also teaches workshops for ukulele and songwriting at festivals, has been a featured guest artist at the Center for Children (San Diego, CA), and was an Artist in Residence at the Strathmore Performing Arts Center (Bethesda, MD). In 2014, her original song, "The Bird Song" was included in the New Zealand Ukulele Trust songbook for kids (2014-2016) and traveled there to perform her song alongside 2,500 children. Vox has completed 9 school residency programs (2015 - 2021) where she worked with children on ukulele playing, singing, and songwriting.
Originally from Green Bay, WI, Victoria now resides in Costa Mesa, CA.
