Act Profile

LittleVictorRocks

Little Victor Mac had a gipsy-like childhood. His father was an American serviceman who was constantly on the move. Victor also leads a wanderers' life on both sides of the pond. Lots of lucky people have seen him perform in Memphis, Paris, Austin, London, Riga, Hollywood, Oslo, Phoenix, Madrid, Lisbon, Las Vegas, Helsinki, Los Angeles, Milan, Toronto, Berlin, New Orleans, Barcelona, Stockholm, San Antonio and Amsterdam.

Victor began singing in 1981 at the tender age of 14 – hence the name "Little" Victor. His first band mostly featured songs from the Sun Records vaults. At 16, he picked up the blues harmonica and started to wail in the style of Jimmy Reed and Junior Parker.

His live performances are often described as an unusual mix of juke joint blues and cabaret. Indeed, LV can bring to mind John Lee Hooker, Slim Harpo, Pee Wee Herman, Muddy Waters, Peter Sellers, RL Burnside, James Brown, Salvador Dali, Lightnin' Hopkins, Tommy Cooper, Jimmy Reed and Screaming Jay Hawkins all rolled into one.

His rich, quirky and inspired neo-retro blend of vintage -retro American music became well-known through his work with the legendary bluesman Louisiana Red on the highly celebrated Back To The Black Bayou. This album introduced the world to the powerful musical chemistry between Louisiana Red and Little Victor.

The record featured guests including Kim Wilson and David Maxwell and won prestigious prizes like the Grand Prix Du Disque (the French equivalent of the Grammy Award), the renowned Record Critics' Award of Germany (the German equivalent of the Grand Prix Du Disque), numerous Best Album nods in different Countries and a pair of nominations at the 31st Blues Music Awards (the Grammy of the blues) in the USA. The album earned glowing reviews on 3 continents in important mainstream music magazines such as Rolling Stone and Down Beat.

Little Victor has also produced and played on records by Harpdog Brown, Grammy-winner David Evans, Hubert Sumlin, RL Burnside, Robert Belfour and Tav Falco's Panther Burns –his work on Tav's long-awaited comeback album Conjurations was even noticed by MOJO Magazine.

He recently moved to the UK and currently lives in Brighton. He often travels abroad to play shows with his band. If you like Scott Bradlee's "Post Modern Jukebox" and Quentin Tarantino's movies and soundtracks, you're going to love Little Victor.
