Victoria Vox (née Davitt) was inspired at an early age to create music that came from her heart. Her first instruments were the violin, oboe, and VT-400 Casio keyboard (which she used to record her first demo of 6 original songs at 12 years old). As a freshman in high school, she joined the jazz band and took up the trumpet. At 17, she taught herself guitar and her electro-pop songs turned moody as "singer/songwriter" influences emerged.
She attended the Berklee College of Music as a vocalist and songwriter, almost always accompanying herself with the guitar. Victoria was a recipient of the Vince Gill Songwriting Scholarship and also performed with the African Drum and Dance (1999 Commencement Concert for David Bowie). She graduated in the summer of 2000 and moved to Nashville, TN.
After VictoriaVox.com was purchased in 2003, club and cafe owners where Victoria played introduced her as "Victoria Vox", and the name stuck. She then began to play the ukulele as well (self-taught) and never thought twice about the 4-stringed underdog. The ukulele's soft and upbeat tone was a fresh start for her. "If there hasn't been a university study on the psychological and sociological benefits of playing the ukulele, now might be a good time-and Victoria Vox could the Test Case." (Ukulele Magazine)
In 2005, while writing a song in the car, she discovered her "mouth trumpet" and began studying the recordings of Chet Baker and Miles Davis. It was the perfect addition to her solo shows and often jokes, 'I'm the cheapest trio in town!'. Vox has since received praise for her "invisible instrument" by Jay Leno in 2009 and the Wall Street Journal in 2015.
10 years after she played her last note on the trumpet in high school jazz band, she re-discovered her knack for playing while working on her 2nd studio album, Chameleon.
Currently, she has released 9 albums (one of them is of all covers, from her 52 Cover Song Project from 2011), and continues to tour internationally and across the U.S.
