"Vic is one of the most intriguing and interesting acts around at the moment." - Lyric Magazine
Although she grew up playing musical instruments, Vic Allen first picked up the guitar as a teenager, and after a trip to America, where she was inspired by the rich country music scene, she began songwriting. Whilst still studying at the University of Bristol, she began to perform her original material at local open mics nights, and quickly progressed onto playing regular booked gigs around the city. Since graduating from Bristol, Vic has been performing at a huge variety of venues and festivals across the UK, co-headlining the female fronted "Write Like a Girl" tour with Beth Keeping and Emily Faye in 2018. She also began taking regular trips to Nashville to collaborate with other songwriters and further develop her songwriting, showcasing her original material in writer's rounds at venues such as The Listening Room.
In October 2016, Vic independently released a self-written EP titled “The Missing Piece” which received airplay from various radio stations across the country, and praise from BBC Introducing. Following the success of her debut, Vic launched a successful crowdfunding campaign over the summer of 2017 which allowed her to record her second EP, a four track release titled "Between The Lines".
In 2018, Vic signed with GingerDog Records to record her debut album. The first single "Blinded" was released on August 10th, 2018, and debuted at no.9 on the iTunes UK country single charts.
