Victor is an accomplished musician, producer, songwriter and singer whose music draws from an eclectic array of influences. He strives for authenticity and the creation of timeless music that touches our hearts. His aim is to write music that challenges us to find and then examine our own real depths.
Victor was raised in northern California and spent his childhood summers at his Italian grandparent’s farm in the San Francisco Bay area. It was there that he fell in love with music. “Beneath a thousand gallons of well water was a storage room filled with discarded treasures dating back to the 1800’s. That’s where I escaped from my duties in the orchard and let my imagination run wild,” says Victor with a smile. “And when I reached out and touched the keys of the dusty upright piano in the corner, it changed my life!”
Victor spends his time between Los Angeles and San Francisco. His favorite recording studio is The Village in LA where “Devil” was recorded. “The Village is like an extension of a musical instrument – it is such an amazing place to make music,” says Victor. “The staff, the rooms, the equipment – we always feel so welcome there.”
Victor has had the pleasure of working with a number of great musicians, including Maxim Moston (Anthony and the Johnsons, Beck, Rufus Wainwright), Jonathan Richman (The Modern Lovers), Windy Wagner (Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus), Ralph Carny (Tom Waits), Ira Nepas (Paul McCartney, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles), Inyoung Park (PSY, Girl’s Generation, Lena Park, BoA), Darrell Leonard (The Rolling Stones, Elton John & Leon Russell), John Shifflett (Madeleine Peyroux, John Zorn), and John Worley (Wayne Shorter, Don Byron).
Victor Bellomo records exclusively for SoCal Records. His first single, “Devil,” featuring Windy Wagner on vocals, will be available worldwide on all platforms and digital music stores on September 28.
