Victoria Banks will be performing live at the Mitchell Opera House on March 4, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. Victoria’s list of accolades as an artist is long. Her self-produced, self-penned records When You Can Fly and Never Be the Same made her 2009’s most nominated female artist in Canadian Country Music, earned her the 2010 CCMA Female Artist of the Year award, and sent her out on tour with superstars Reba McEntire, Wynonna Judd, Lonestar, Randy Travis and Johnny Reid.
Although she loves singing, songwriting is her first love. Hardship hones a songwriter’s craft like a sword forged in fire, and songwriting became a form of self-discovery for Victoria that helped her escape an abusive marriage and survive a parent’s suicide. “My music keeps evolving because I evolve,” she says. “You’re the sum of your scars and the product of your experiences. Songwriting is about turning a magnifying glass on your own life to find the metaphor and meaning in everyone else’s.” Victoria’s impressive catalogue of hits includes three cuts by Sara Evans including “Can’t Stop Loving You” (a duet with Isaac Slade of The Fray), and the ASCAP and SOCAN-award-winning “Saints & Angels.” She penned Jessica Simpson’s Billboard record-breaking country debut “Come On Over,” X Factor winner Tate Steven’s “Ordinary Angels,” One More Girl’s breakout hit “When It Ain’t Raining,” Doc Walker’s chart-topping “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” and Johnny Reid’s smash “Dance With Me,” for which Victoria was named 2010 CCMA Songwriter of the Year. “Life is painful and impossible and breathtaking and beautiful. I have to write what I feel.” Tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under. Visit www.mitchelloperahouse.com for more information or to purchase tickets in advance.
