Miss "V" - The Gypsy Cowbelle
"Good humored laughter curled her lip, a spark of deviltry lit her eye; before we knew it, she'd brought out her homemade banjo and guitar. She sang songs into the night, old favorites we could hum to. We all lingered on bewitched by ageless, timeless "V."
- Helena James, Lilliwaup, WA
Whether she's building a banjo, riding the Divide, singing around a campfire, floating the Grand or hitchhiking across America, this little gal is doing her best to seize Life's Rich Pageant. "V" has balanced her back-country experiences with countless asphalt tours, seeking enlightenment through solitude as well as through her interactions with people from all walks of life. A knack for recognizing the humor in everyday life, an appreciation for history, a hunger for adventure and a ceaseless sense of creativity collectively establish Miss V's unique perspective and personality. Her experiences, free spirit, clever lyricism and classic rhythms on the guitar and her homemade banjo, blend together to create her signature "Genuine Cowbilly" music. This Gypsy Cowbelle and her music possess a universal and timeless allure that has charmed fans from coffee houses and campfires to festivals and honky tonks across America for nearly two decades.
