Victoria Victoria feat. Charlie Hunter & Scott Amendola – 9:00 PM
North Carolina-based indie-pop band Victoria Victoria’s new album, To The Wayside marks a beautifully fresh and alluring musical masterpiece that’s been in the making since 2020. Each of the album’s nine songs is a gem, mined through a collaboration between Victoria Victoria front-woman Tori Elliott, producer/engineer Stephen Lee Price, Jr., and virtuoso guitarist Charlie Hunter. They’ll be joined on this concert date by masterful drummer Scott Amendola.
Elliott, who brings an innate effervescence and joyfulness to her live performances, brings equally insightful lyrics and contagious melodies to this project, as she explores and dissects issues surrounding modern female identity. “Songwriting helps me untangle what’s going on emotionally,” says Elliott, “It almost feels like doing a puzzle. By the time that I got in the studio with Charlie, it just felt like an arrival, musically…It felt like my voice was sitting where I always wanted it to be sitting.”
Hunter says Elliott’s music draws in people of all ages and walks of life with intriguing narratives, songwriting, singing and instrumentation. “Tori’s work is remarkable because it accomplishes the feat of being accessible but really honest and authentic at the same time, which is rare,” Hunter said. “I just loved being a part of her process.”
