Rising talent Victoria Canal reveals new fantastic collection ‘BBC Piano Sessions’
BBC Piano Sessions features a cover of Phoebe Bridgers’ “Motion Sickness” as well as Canal’s own original track “swan song,” hailed by Coldplay’s Chris Martin as “one of the best songs ever written.” The live performances were recorded at London’s iconic 1000+ year old St. Pancras Old Church in September 2022 and first broadcast by Sian Eleri on BBC Radio 1’s Chillest Show on October 23, 2022.
Following her 2022 debut headline tour, and the release of her acclaimed Elegy EP, Victoria is set to play a one-off London show on Friday February 10th at St. James’s Church, Piccadilly as part of the Piccadilly Piano Festival. She appears alongside Jools Holland with London Contemporary Voices Choir, Nadine Benjamin and Venetia Iga with John Haslam.
Canal recently made her television acting debut in the second series of acclaimed anthology series, “Little America.” Canal stars in the season’s moving episode, “The Indoor Arm,” as a Spanish-speaking Salvadorian refugee in the 80s who comes to America to live with her sister. Inspired by the true stories featured in Epic Magazine, “Little America” goes beyond the headlines to look at the funny, romantic, heartfelt, inspiring and surprising stories of immigrants in America, when they’re more relevant now than ever. The series is available now on Apple TV+. Canal also wrote “Bring It On” as the theme song for Apple TV+ series Best Foot Forward, based on the book by Paralympic skier Josh Sundquist.
