When you need a great vocalist who can do it all, look no further. Victoria Boland is Tina Turner, Shania Twain, Cher & Marilyn Monroe in one. To quote Al Jolsen, "you ain't seen nuthin' yet!" if you haven't seen and heard this gorgeous Canadian singer/songwriter, entertainer and impersonator.

Biography

As a singer, my influences are huge as I've been studying my craft and honing my skills since childhood. My credits include 2 scholarships to Boston's Berklee College of Music for my jazz vocals, 3 first place wins in National Open Country Competitions, and performances for thousands on Shania Twain's stage and at Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee. I have also recorded and worked with members of Elton John's band (Guy Babylon, Davey Johnstone and Nigel Olsen), and toured with my own cd.

Most recently, I auditioned and placed in the top 200 for the INXS ROCKSTAR Search being conducted by Mark Burnett Productions. I am currently focussing my songwriting efforts on soft rock and rock/blues.

To keep some scheckles coming in while working on my music, I model, am a film extra, do tribute acts and impersonations of Shania Twain, Marilyn Monroe tributes, Tina Turner and Cher. Don't miss my 4-month engagement at THE CAVERN in Hong Kong!

Set List

I usually do sets that run anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, i.e. 8 - 15 songs, with chatter in between. If I'm performing for a country music audience, my sets combine original material (from my All Woman Girl cd and Rust Bros. project) alnd covers of material by Shania Twain, Patsy Cline, Wynonna Judd, Faith Hill. If my audience is there to enjoy Jazz, blues, standards etc., then I do Etta James (At Last), Lena Horne (Stormy Weather) or any number of Jazzy/blues songs. My repertoire and supply of backing tracks is large. I can also deliver a Vegas-style show doing some Marilyn Monroe (Diamonds are a Girl's best Friend, My heart belongs to Daddy), some Peggy Lee (Fever, Whatever Lola Wants) etc. It all depends on what kind of function I'm booked for and what their audience wants to hear. As a singer/songwriter, I have very eclectic tastes that cover many genres. As an entertainer, I tailor my shows and songs to my audience's tastes.
