"Thought provoking and musically intriguing. To stand out takes something special, and this EP is just that." - Outline Magazine
Vic Allen is a singer-songwriter originating from the UK. She 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 gigs at larger venues such as The Fleece and Bristol Harbourfest. After graduating from Bristol, Vic started performing across the UK, including venues in London and festivals such as Buckle and Boots. She also began taking regular trips to Nashville to collaborate with other songwriters and further develop her songwriting, showcasing her original material in writers rounds. Venue highlights include The Bluebird Café and 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. The EP also caught the attention of BBC Introducing, who invited Vic to play live in the studio.
Over the summer of 2017, Vic launched a successful crowdfunding campaign which allowed her to record her second EP, titled "Between The Lines". This EP is due for release in early 2018.
