Born in Brighton and raised in Dorset, singer-songwriter Victoria Hume studied English at Oxford before moving to London twelve years ago, where she’s been living, writing and performing music ever since. She also works as an arts manager in the National Health Service.
She is currently working on two major projects for 2013:
In June 2013 a new series of songs, Delirium, will be performed in London’s Old Operating Theatre. Funded by the PRS for Music Foundation, the songs will be based on research and interviews about delirium in intensive treatment units (see http://victoriajhume.wordpress.com/).
In July she will launch the first single from a brand new album with Leg Guitar Records. The full album will be released in September, with a UK tour following the release.
Victoria released Landing, an ambiguously romantic, sophisticated collection of songs, in January 2012, a follow-up to 2009’s Limbs & Digits. Three years in the making, Landing is a mixture of studio recordings from the Garden in Shoreditch, and home recordings from Mile End. Released quietly on her own label, the album still managed to win acclaim, whilst lead track Sorry caught the attention of BBC 6’s Lauren Laverne, who championed the album calling it ‘really beautiful stuff’.
