Inspiration. The reason why Victoria plays music. Music has always been not just a hobby, but a part of her identity. She strives to share real stories and experiences through song that just about anyone can relate to.
“Just as every person has a different personality and different things that make them who they are, no one can ever know exactly how someone else is feeling, until they hear that song that captures their emotions so perfectly… and that is fascinating to me“ Victoria Leigh states. Being of a very diverse background and having seen many different aspects of life at an early age has made her songwriting diverse as well. She spent most of her life as a lost child, searching for a sense of identity and belonging. At 3 months of age, she was adopted from Chile. After 25 years, she located her birth family in Chile and it has certainly been an incredible experience.
After playing piano for 10 years, she picked up her first guitar at age 15, and hasn’t really put it down since. Growing up in a small town in Northern Massachusetts, she grew to love the classic beauty of a small town and listened to all of the music she could get her hands on. Her love for music began at a very early age, and she started writing her own songs at the age of 11 based off of the feelings she felt through her childhood. After experiencing her first heartbreak at age 16, the emotions she felt from this song motivated her to start writing. She continues to write songs about genuine aspects of life such as earth conservation, unity, love and awareness. Her goal is to share her profound love of music, and the message of love with all who will listen.
