LA singer and guitarist LVictoria has played out with the likes of Lita Ford, Bret Michaels, and Robby Krieger of the Doors. She’s coming to town to open for New York sleaze rockers Danger Danger, so we had a chat.L
Yellow Scene: When did you start making music, and taking it seriously?
LVictoria: I started making music when I was a little girl. I was writing music, playing piano, learning how to play guitar and harmonica, writing songs. My father was my inspiration – I got it from him. When I was 14, I was part of a Battle of the Bands contest, and we got second place. I thought that it would be great to write and play music, tour the world, write music for people, ad just make art.
YS: Describe your style and sound…
LV: That’s very difficult. We’re very versatile. There’s a lot of great music genres out there. My style is old school rock mixed with electronic elements, and some blues.
YS: The Series of Miracles album is out – are you happy with it?
LV: Yes. It’s going to be part of my show. It’s a great album. When we came back from tour, we realized that we sold out of copies, so we are selling it on iTunes. But we don’t have any CDs left from the last tour.
YS: What can we expect from the Buffalo Rose set?
LV: Oh my gosh, it’s going to an amazing show. We’re excited to see everybody. We love Danger Danger. We’ve been touring with Bret Michaels and Ace Frehley, and we just love that we get to play with our rock heroes. We’re going to give a lot of energy to the audience. We’re really excited.
YS: When this tour’s done, what’s next?
LV: We’re going to finish the next album, and we’re going to play shows in Canada as well. We’re writing music for movies and TV shows, so it’s going to be a very busy, exciting year.
LVictoria plays with Danger Danger and Mr. Steak at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 23 at the Buffalo Rose; 1119 Washington Ave., Golden; 303-278-6800; $20-$26.
