looks like an angel, sings like hell
California Country is a thing. It’s a beautiful thing, actually. It’s the gift Victoria George gives her growing legion of fans everyday, and it’s worth knowing intimately.
California Country happens when places like Northern California’s Marin County and country music meccas like Nashville collide. The result in Victoria George’s case is rather fascinating — a sound that’s part San Francisco folk, part Nashville/bluegrass twang, all heart and revelations and smarty-pants yarn-spinnin’. Gather round, Victoria beckons.
Victoria is by now a confident mid-career singer-songwriter who knows what and who she is. She comes from a family of artists and herself has a background in theater. And, well, she’s lovely. So it’s not all that surprising she commands a stage with the zeal of an Allison Krauss or Bonnie Raitt, artists who check their pretention at the door and prefer honest-to-goodness stories.
Music biz folks have indeed taken notice throughout the years. Victoria has worked in and outside of Nashville’s finest publishing houses and shared bills with the likes of Brandi Carlisle, the Doobie Brothers, Steve Earle, Delta Rae and other industry names that speak for themselves.
But she embraces her place in the lineage of folk artists primarily concerned with crafting songs to make people think and feel something meaningful. That’s the California Country way, and the Victoria George creed.
