Event description

Description

Victoria Vox was a headliner at our First Annual Funky Frets Uke Fest in 2015, we could not be more excited to have her back in Boyertown for a concert and workshop at the music store!

Event Details:

Workshop 6:00pm-7:00pm

Get in the Groove?: Rhythm can be played straight, or swung. You’ve got to swing to be swung! It’s all about the groove and feeling, and you’ll feel the difference. Let’s work on loosening up the right hand so that beats are subdivided with heart, and less brain. The groove even starts before you play a note!

Concert 7:30pm-8:30pm

Website Bio: With a passion for songwriting, Victoria Vox began writing songs when she was ten. She furthered her music education at the Berklee College of Music, as a vocal principle with an emphasis in Songwriting. A few years after graduating, Vox took up the ukulele. Her music style shifted to chanson tinged with jazz, which, over the years, has settled in nicely with her pop songwriting flair. With 10 albums under her belt (as an unsigned artist), Victoria continues to grow and hone her craft. She's very personable on stage, though a bit shy at times, she's goofy and engaging, and likes to make people laugh. But as soon as she opens her mouth to sing, the emotion and inspiration pour out of her melodic and cleverly written songs, and it becomes undeniable that she is genuine and full of heart.

To keep touring expenses reasonable, Vox has often found herself performing solo. This has helped her developed her rhythmic ukulele playing style (to give herself her own back-beat drum) and she has also perfected her popular "Mouth Trumpet", under the influence of trumpet icon, Chet Baker. The Mouth-Trumpet has enabled her to take vocal improvisational solos without scatting or using words. This unlikely and odd talent landed her on the Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno (2009) and on the cover of the Wall Street Journal (2015). Depending on the setting, she pairs the rhythmic uke and mouth trumpet with her electronic-looping skills (to create ostinato bass lines and harmonies) while creating a full sound, atypical to the stereotype of "ukulele music".

Vox’ music has been featured on NPR and used in independent films. In addition to winning awards for her songwriting (in both French and English), she also has written and donated songs to the American Asperger’s Association, the Duchenne Foundation, and ocean conservancy groups. She is an 8-year member of 1% For the Planet.

Originally from Green Bay WI, via Baltimore MD, Vox is newly based out of Costa Mesa CA. Her motto “Have Uke, Will Travel” has taken her all over the world (New Zealand, Australia, USA, France, Belgium, Italy, UK, and Canada) to perform her original music.

Her 10th album, Colorful Heart, is consistently eclectic, as her previous albums, however, a new sound is achieved in her songwriting. Anything is possible with a ukulele, and Victoria Vox is proof.
