My guest today is a my good friend Victoria Canal. She is a 22-year-old artist, singer, songwriter, and now producer based all over the world. She was based in Los Angeles, but when the coronavirus shutdown hit, she moved to Amsterdam where her parents live.

Victoria and I discuss how she’s been handling the last six months. This was supposed to be her breakout year. She had two massive tours scheduled. She had just finished one supporting the band Tall Heights. Then she leveled up to an even bigger tour supporting Leslie Odom Jr. She also just came out with her EP, ‘Victoria,’ and as you can imagine, the release strategy changed quite a bit. So we talked about that.

I had Victoria’s manager, Andrew Leib, on the show a few months back. You can get the other side of Victoria’s career. He talks about why he wanted to sign Victoria and what it has been like working her so far. Listen to Andrew’s episode here.
