Artist Profile: Vicky Sjohall

Growing up in a house filled with music Vicky fell in love with ABBA, the Beatles, Patsy Cline and Elvis at a very young age, singing harmonies and performing for people at any given moment. Vicky’s passion eventually inspired her to write her own songs, form and manage a nationally acclaimed pop band, tour extensively playing music, and collaborate with artists and projects along the way.

August 14th, 2017

Locally on the West Coast, Vicky performs regularly, and she is the newest Solid Gold Sister of Soul in the highly acclaimed funk/soul band Billy Dixons Soul Train Express. Vicky continues to collaborate and has been a featured vocalist with many live shows, as well as recording vocals for an array of music projects and music genres, including pop-rock, country, hip hop and electronica.
