"A gobsmackingly powerful performance.
Victoria Vigenser’s gritty intelligent social comment and imagery is a theme in her writing, an astonishing voice.
The likes of Mitchell, Chapman and Difranco at times.
There is a spell binding quality to Vic’s own delivery that comes out in achingly beautiful lyrics lovingly wrapped in Lindsay Martin's exquisite mandolin and fiddle accompaniment".
Born in Auckland NZ but more recently hailing from the middle of nowhere in the Hawkes Bay, she's settling down into a new suitcase and taking only her originals with her.
Gritty social comment and imagery is a theme in her writing, delivered with a strong, controlled vocal and solid accompaniment on guitar, dulcimer or bodhran. The tales of the tunes are light-hearted but the songs are not. With a special passion for harmony, she combines voice and instrumentation to conjure images that cannot be ignored.
Victoria has teamed up with the legendary mandolin/violinist and recording engineer Lindsay Martin to put down a long-awaited album of originals and 2018 Australian Tour.
Their debut album will hit the scene in September this year, so keep your eyes and ears open- you won’t want to miss it.
