Biography

The child of two music artists, Victoria Shaw was raised hearing the California country-rock from the Eagles and Linda Ronstadt. She started singing and composing songs as a kid, executing with her sister around LA. Her afterwards songwriting career led to three country amount types, “The River” for Garth Brooks, “As well Busy Getting in Appreciate” for Doug Rock and John Michael Montgomery’s “I REALLY LIKE how you Appreciate Me.” Shaw’s debut record, In Full Watch, premiered by Reprise in middle-1995; her self-titled follow-up made an appearance two years afterwards.
