Blues fans know that Florida’s west coast is a hotbed of talent in the genre. The Suncoast Blues Society has sent some of the finest artists to the IBC’s year after year. Selwyn Birchwood was their most recent winner, and they’ve consistently produced semi-finalist. “I didn’t realize how rich this area was with talent until I started playing the venues up and down the coast.” says Ginty. “We are frequently playing the week before or after some of the best Blues artist in the country!”

Victoria has just finished a new studio project, “Unfinished Business ” of mostly original material . She says, “I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a new project with so much original material, and I had great co-writers contributing as well, including Mike Alan Ward and members of my band. In Nashville I had some success as a songwriter, but this Blues project has been a lifetime in the making”.
