V. Contreras

Seattle, Washington

Victoria is a cool chick with a sound that is unique and cinematic and a voice that kills.

About V. Contreras

“If the world were right all of the time, Victoria would be a huge star right now” – Duff McKagan, Guns n Roses

V., the love child of Dusty Springfield and Nancy Sinatra with a splash of the Ronettes, is known for her rich, soulful voice and dramatic songwriting chops. This songwriter, vocalist, poet and composer was the sole writer on her inaugural self-titled album. A classically trained vocalist with a prodigal past that includes fronting a 25-piece jazz band at 12 years old, this 007-soul artist has a voice that quite simply captivates audiences.

With an album that could possibly be a James Bond Soundtrack in the waiting, V. Contreras’ self-titled inaugural debut is a concept album unified by the theme of love in its most unconventional form. V. went from 100 adoring fans to 20,000 in less than a year. With lyrics as memorable as her soulful voice, the album presents an honest jolt of clever authenticity, which truly defines her music.

Her distinct alternative soul sound has landed her song “Feelin’ That” on Top 40 and Hot AC Radio (currently in the top 100 national Mediabase top 40 chart) while being recognized in the International Songwriting Contest.

Victoria is a classically trained vocalist who has also studied rock, pop, jazz and opera with renowned vocal coaches including Lis Lewis (Rihanna, Britney Spears and Colbie Caillat) and Maestro David Kyle (Liza Minnelli, Ann and Nancy Wilson and Lane Staley.) A featured vocalist with Seattle Rock Orchestra, McDonalds commercials and the National Anthem for Mariners, Sonics and Seahawks, V.’s inaugural full length album was produced by Martin Feveyear (Brandi Carlile, Duff McKagan’s Loaded) with string/horn arrangements by Andrew Joslyn (Macklemore), all songs written by Victoria.

V. has shared the stage and worked with Duff McKagan, Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Collective Soul, Morrissey, and has worked with such industry greats as Randy Jackson (American Idol), Ryan Hadlock (Lumineers, Vance Joy) and Steve Dorff (Grammy nominated songwriter)
