"Best Female Singer Songwriter 2004"

”It took three years for Victoria Woodworth to unearth her solo recording “Faultline.” It took much longer to collect the wealth of experience and emotion at its heart. A small person with a big voice and a poetic bent, Woodworth concentrates on the Important Issues: longing, love and loneliness; faith, awakening, self awareness, memory and hope. But her work isn't bogged down by its own psychic weight. She's a songwriter's songwiter, a student of the chorus, build and bridge...and her style suggests artists we can only assume are her teachers: Patsy Cline, Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons and others.” (Laura Bond) - Westword Magazine

"Top Ten Songs of The Year for a Multiple Personality Disorder"

San Andreas from Faultline, by Victoria Woodworth. Woodworth's version of country avoids the slick, processed sound currently associated with Nashville in favor of raw emotion and vocals delivered straight from the gut. If “San Andreas” doesn't shake you up, it's nobody's fault but yours.” (Michael Roberts) - Westword Magazine


"Hit Pick"

"Life?" asks Victoria Woodworth. "Mine's a mess. That's how I like it." This take-it-as-it-comes attitude regularly shakes up Faultline, an impressive new disc that's
being celebrated this week by a trio of CD-release shows: Wednesday, October 1, at the Lion's Lair, with Luther Wright & the Wrongs; Thursday, October 2, at Paco's in Idaho Springs; and Saturday, October 4, at the Larimer Lounge, with John Common's Awful Liars. The album is credited to Victoria Woodworth & Friends, and she does indeed have some fairly prominent pals. In addition to the assistance of her band, the Heroes, she receives contributions from Firefall veteran Jock Bartley and Nobody in Particular Presents' Doug Kauffman -- on hand as a bass player, not a promoter. Still, Woodworth is the star of this particular show, contributing a passel of heartfelt, hard-country compositions and belting them out with the sort of authenticity that Faith Hill couldn't muster even if she were given a decade to try. Highlights (and there are plenty of them) include the soaring "San Andreas"; the mournful "Faithful," keyed by Michael Shay's full-bodied cello; and "Paris," about a black mood in the City of Lights. Sure, Woodworth's singing on these and other cuts can be a touch eccentric, but that's a big part of her charm. Her songs aren't neat and tidy, and neither is life.

Bio

Victoria Woodworth is a West coast-born, Colorado raised singer songwriter currently living and performing in Nashville, Tennessee.
Her mostly acoustic guitar and piano driven songs are rough sketches in the most intimate sense: small stories set on porches and bar stools, in kitchens, bedrooms and churches. They all concern, to some degree, the romantic, spiritual, and social beauties and horrors living side by side in this world. They are intended for good, to ultimately encourage and uplift...but can take a twisted path getting there. Bring some climbing gear.
Her influences run the gamut, and include all the good hillbillies, hippies,outlaws and missionaries you'd expect. She is also a fan of glam, punk and the unclassifiable.
Victoria was named Best Female Songwriter of the Year by Westword Magazine in 2004, following the release of her second album, Faultline. She has shared stages with a variety of Americana artists including John Hiatt, Shawn Colvin, Loudon Wainright III, Graham Parker and Chris Whitley.
She is partial to cats and long walks on the beach...
