Influences: John Mayer, Taylor Swift,
A top 5 artist in the iTunes UK Country Chart, Vic Allen blends an acoustic-driven sound with strong influences from modern country music. Her music has received airplay on Chris Country Radio and Country Hits Radio, as well as various BBC stations, and in March this year she opened up for Sarah Darling on her Wonderland tour. Vic is a founding member of “Write Like a Girl”, a movement that aims to put female songwriting talent in the spotlight. In 2018 she embarked on a country-wide “Write Like a Girl” tour with fellow songwriters Beth Keeping and Emily Faye on which they shared the stage with a guest act from each location in writer’s round-style performances. The tour was a huge success and was mentioned by Bob Harris on Radio 2.
Although she grew up playing musical instruments, Vic 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. The States continue to be an important part of her musical development, having spent several of the last few months in Nashville, penning tracks with local songwriters and showcasing her material at acclaimed venues such as The Bluebird Café and The Listening Room.
In February 2018, Vic independently released a fan-funded EP titled “Between The Lines", followed later in the year by singles “Blinded” and “Keeping Me Up”. In April this year, the country-pop single “Talk” was released and added to Spotify’s “New Music Nashville” playlist the same day. Singles “Enough” and “Ghost Town” followed in August and September, and her full EP will be released October 18th.
