Laura Victoria Bustillos aka LVictoria was born in Venezuela. She started singing, writing songs, playing piano, guitars and harps when she was 8. LVictoria moved to Los Angeles, founded LA Velvet, produced the first album and took the band on tour. She was then endorsed by Jackson Guitars, Diamond Amplification, DBZ Guitars and more.
Some of her songs were licensed to 18 TV shows such as Keeping Up With the Kardashians and movies such as Once Upon a Fight, Becoming Eduardo and the opening song for VIII Deadly Sins.
She is currently recording an electropop/rock debut album.
What a busy gal! Now it's time to get up close and personal with her.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
LV continues to surprise and please her audience with her unique style mixed with provocative, brave and powerful lyrics, resulting in a sound that is fearless and original. A sound that is LVictoria.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Tough question! I can't not even think about doing something else besides music, but if I was reborn and after satisfying my soul. I would really love to be a psychologist to help people. I could work for the government as a secret agent, FBI or SWAT because I think it must be the same kind of edge it feels when on the stage.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I wrote over 50 poems and a book that was released in Venezuela. It was about American poetry and the jazz scene in the '40s. I'm bilingual and understand at least three other languages. I love dancing salsa, merengue, reggae, reggae-ton, Venezuelan drums, etc. Also, I like hiking, yoga, kick boxing, meditation, reading books, traveling, hanging out with my girl friends.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
Ok let's get intimate! Close your eyes, imagine that you are in the studio with me and hold my hand. I will take you to one of the best journeys you ever experienced. Sit down next to me in front of one of my biggest inspirations, Lester Mendez, who wrote and produced songs for most of my favorite female artists. Stay in the moment, he is going to make us listen to some tracks so we could pick one to start with. Write the words with me, let your heart and soul show me how you feel and I will show you how I feel. Open your eyes, the song is in our mailbox almost ready for the world! There you go.
Finish the sentence: LVictoria is the artist that...
...is a chameleon, can move mountains, keeps evolving to continue her work as a messenger of the light thru her songs and to the world.
Did you dig LVictoria?
