Combining the country-flavored vocals of the Dixie Chicks with the tone of Alison Krauss and the roots of Bonnie Raitt, Victoria George reminds listeners of the power of a great voice and a fresh song. Building her fan base the old-fashioned way, Victoria has spent years growing a grass-roots following. In 2005 she released her first EP, ‘Far As I’m Concerned’, which was followed in 2006 by her self-titled full-length effort. These records and a string of high-profile shows opening for the likes of Junior Brown, Willie Nelson and The Doobie Brothers landed her a management deal out of Nashville, where she spent three more years polishing her craft as a songwriter and performer.
Fresh from Nashville, George is now based in the Bay Area (Corte Madera) and poised for success. Her new EP, produced by herself, David Simon-Baker (ALO, Jackie Greene) and Gawain Mathews, entitled ‘Lately I’, will be released on May 7th, 2011. ’Lately I’ showcases George’s growth via her Nashville experience – as Victoria states, "I learned a tremendous amount about songwriting in Nashville. I learned how to keep the originality of my sound and combine it with the best Nashville had to offer."
