"Victoria George has the enviable skill of sounding effortless at everything she does, be it country, rock or breezy pop music...this North Bay native simply knows her way around a good tune." Irish Greg- KFOG

Combining the country-flavored vocals of the Dixie Chicks with the tone of Alison Krauss and the roots of Bonnie Raitt, at the end of the day Victoria George has her own sound. One where commercial appeal meets personal commitment. Building her fan base the old-fashioned way, Victoria has spent years growing a grass-roots following here in the Bay Area and beyond. In 2005 she released her first EP, Far As I'm Concerned, which was followed in 2007 by her self-titled full-length effort, Victoria George. 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. Reluctant to leave the Bay Area but excited to try her luck in Music City, Victoria moved everything in 2008, where for two-and-a-half years she polished her craft as a songwriter and performer.

With a "been there, done that, what's next" attitude, Victoria is back living in the Bay Area and promoting her new release, Lately I, recorded at Mission Bells Studio in San Francisco. This long awaited release showcases a maturity in her songwriting and a definite honing of her sound. It is simply- California meets Tennessee. "Forever", the first track off the EP was recently chosen by KFOG for their Local Scene 8 compilation.
