Victoria Newton - Jazz Bands | Artist Profile




Victoria Newton is thrilled to be back in Perth after many years of performing in the UK, where she was recognised as one the most exciting and dynamic jazz vocalists on the scene. Vlctoria's unique versatility mixes a solid command of the jazz repertoire with a love of Brazilian music. A stint as a dance music diva in the mid-1990s also enabled Victoria to bring her energetic live performance style to audiences all over the globe.

Festivals Victoria has performed at have included: The South Park Jazz Festival in Oxford, The Marlborough Jazz Festival, The Queille Festival ( France), The Swanage Jazz Festival, The Jazz Divas Festival on the Isle of Wight and the Oxford Literary Festival.
As a jazz student with the WA Youth Jazz Orchestra Victoria supported artists greats such as James Moody, Dionne Warwick and Ray Charles.
In the mid 90's Victoria's career took a new turn when she was chosen to front the UK dance music sensation ‘Strike’ and their smash hit U Sure Do which made the top 5 in many countries all over the world including the UK and Australia. Victoria found herself touring all over Europe all the way through to Japan, appearing regularly on the BBC’s prime time show Top of the Pops and MTV.
