Victoria Anthony isn’t your run-of-the-mill new artist. Refreshingly wise beyond her years, her debut album, Real Life, and its preceding singles, Real Life, Sleep and Gotta Get Up, are the culmination of her relentless work ethic, undeniable talent, and involvement that goes beyond simply being a voice on a song. Featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, It’s A Bop, Pop All Day & Contemporary Blend, her album has hit over 1.1mm streams on Spotify and over 2 million views on YouTube. From writing, production, recording, mixing and mastering, she has been attentive to every detail leading up to the release, including the conceptualization of her branding, album artwork, music videos and more.
Her first exposure to the masses came when she got the rare chance of singing to her idol, superstar recording artist P!nk, in front of 20,000 spectators at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The video garnered worldwide press coverage and millions of views on YouTube which led Anthony to start writing her own original music and working with some of the music industry's top producers and songwriters.
“The meaning behind this album is about living in the moment and going for what you want,” she declared. It’s also about experiencing both the good and bad parts of life and the fulfillment that comes from that. The lyric from Real Life, “It’s the journey that makes it beautiful” really says it all. ‘I don’t wanna sleep’ and ‘There’s a spark in my system burning for days’ both stem from just being so engaged and in love with life, that you do not want to stop, even for something as vital as sleep. I see the song as an accurate metaphor for life.”
