16 Mar SURVIVORville Welcomes Noted Acclaimed Songwriter Victoria Banks
The WSA welcomes the beautiful Victoria Banks to the SURVIVORville stage with songwriters Mary Sue Englund and Lisa Brokop.
Victoria’s self-produced, self-penned records When You Can Fly and Never Be the Same made her 2009’s most nominated female artist in Canadian country music, earned her the 2010 CCMA Female Artist of the Year award, and sent her out on tour with superstars Reba McEntire, Wynonna Judd, Lonestar, Randy Travis and Johnny Reid. But songwriting is her first love.
As a staff songwriter at Nashville’s RareSpark Media Group, Victoria’s impressive catalogue of hits includes 3 cuts by Sara Evans including “Can’t Stop Loving You” (a duet with Isaac Slade of The Fray), and the ASCAP and SOCAN-award-winning “Saints & Angels.” She penned Jessica Simpson’s Billboard record-breaking country debut “Come On Over,” X Factor winner Tate Steven’s “Ordinary Angels,” One More Girl’s breakout hit “When It Ain’t Raining,” Doc Walker’s chart-topping “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” and Johnny Reid’s smash “Dance With Me,” for which Victoria was named 2010 CCMA Songwriter of the Year.
Victoria has earned a place as one of the most respected artists in the Canadian music industry, the admiration of Nashville’s music elite, and the label of “one of the best songwriters in the business” by Nashville’s Music Row Magazine. In a world where authenticity often takes a backseat to marketability, Victoria’s music is a unique breath of fresh air.
Welcome to SURVIVORville will be an amazing night of amazing music!
