Victoria Hume was born in Brighton, raised in Dorset, studied in Oxford and spent several years living and working in London before relocating to Johannesburg in 2014. She self-released her debut album Limbs & Digits in 2009 and its follow-up Landing in 2012. The latter was championed by Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music, who hailed it as “really beautiful stuff.” Outside of music, Victoria works as an arts manager in health and medicine, and as a researcher. Her musical and professional lives came together with remarkable results in 2013’s Delirium, which was made with support from the PRS Women Make Music fund. Based on interviews with ICU patients and nurses, it saw Victoria invited to perform at events ranging from a psychiatry conference to the 2013 Green Man Festival in Wales.
