‘Indigo’ is the third studio album by Port Carling, Ontario country singer, Victoria Banks. She has received 11 CCMA nominations thanks to her previous albums, including the 2010 award for Female Artist of the Year. She also has a highly impressive writing portfolio including “Come On Over” by Jessica Simpson, and “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” by Doc Walker.
The album has a mix of more folk sounding country and more pop sounding country. The lead single, “Ruined”, as well as “Cruel”, and “Firefly”, being the more pop-like songs on the album, versus “Get On The Train”, “Run To You”, and the title track, “Indigo”, being more on the folk side. The album as a whole is very well put together and makes it hard to choose a favourite, but “Ruined” and “Cruel” are definitely tied for first place.
‘Indigo’ is definitely a solid album and has enough diversity among the songs to allow it to appeal to more than just a country audience. It’s certainly going to rack up more CCMA nominations for Banks, and possibly even a couple more awards.
Victoria Banks on social media:
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
