Victoria Hogg (born 15 June 1983) is a British singer-songwriter.
Her first performance upon signing with London Records was her joining the 1998 Lilith Fair at the Jones Beach venue in New York, USA.
Singles were released but despite critical acclaim, the single did not reach a significant chart position, but the song "Fall" received airplay on alternative UK radio stations and frequently on BBC Radio 2. The single was supported by a video which featured on The Box (UK TV channel).
Her work was generally positively received on release including The Times and The Daily Star. Both news reports made comparisons with Billie Piper, The Star predicting like Billie she would have her first hit at aged 15,however this was not the case. Despite the record label best efforts and the reported long term plan, the recording contract was terminated.
However Chrysalis Music maintained faith and Victoria's later collaborations with James Dearlove produced a song titled "Voodoo Moon" which was included on the soundtrack for the 2006 film Love and Other Disasters which starred Brittany Murphy.
Victoria re-established her relationship with her former management and a band was formed "Victorialand" to showcase the new songs. An album called Chrysalis was produced for promotional purposes and had the following track list:
- "Voodoo Moon"
- "Baby don't cry"
- "Dayglo skies"
- "Too many people"
- "Miss Understood"
- "We'll never part"
- "Loves Kiss"
- "Cool breeze"
