About Virginia Traut

Virginia, born Virginia (Traut) in March 1981, became a professional, well respected singer/songwriter and musician at the very young age of 14.

Virginia

Virginia™, the U.S. singer/songwriter, kicked off her career as a multiple award winning AMA recipient for Top Female Vocalist and Best Female Solo Performer for several consecutive years in a row. She also received nominations for Best Song of the Year with her song, 'So Sweet' which made it's debut on her second and final release with NJ/UK based indie label, Gig Records. That release, known as the Hush e.p., made Virginia the recipient of yet another nomination for Best Album of the Year at the Asbury Music Awards. She has shared the stage with world wide artists such as Tracy Chapman, Chris Connelly of Ministry, Miles Hunt and the Wonder Stuff, The Violent Femmes and the Smithereens. Virginia was born on the cusp of Aries & Pisces, just outside the Midwestern city of Chicago. In addition to her vocal and songwriting expertise, Virginia™ is also a known poet, model, photographer, lyricist and soon to be novelist. Above all her accomplishments and talents, it is fair to say that Virginia™ is most famously known for the hypnotic and haunting quality of her voice, the intensity of her sex-appeal and the authenticity of her uniquely, profound and honest writing style. The dichotomy of Virginia's Fire and Water astrological symbols are a perfect metaphor when it comes to describing her ability to cohesively adapt to such an expansive range of creative diversity and artistic direction. Virginia has rightfully found and claimed her own unique space among the millions of genres that have recently culminated from an ever-evolving mixed media ring of technology colliding and creativity dividing. Some of these genres include spoken word music, film & soundtrack, mood music, singer/songwriter, electronic blues, heart and soul, meditation, trip-hop, alternative, indie, world and vocal just to name a few. Her songs not only offer a variation in mood and vibe, but also a declaration that lyrics are more than just words to be memorized. “Lyrics are poetic by nature and ought to be listened to with the same focus and appreciation as one puts into deconstructing beats, rhythms, melodies and bass lines.” Virginia's natural ethereal quality, acoustic-based songwriting and hypnotically haunting voice are just a few charismatic attributes that create such an attractive, artistic allure.

About Virginia Traut

Virginia, born Virginia (Traut) in March 1981, became a professional, well respected singer/songwriter and musician at the very young age of 14. She continued to write songs, regardless of their exposure or lack thereof. It wasn't until she signed with the Independent Label, Gig Records, run by Jose Antao out of Point Pleasant, NJ. She had several offers from highly reputable labels, including Virgin Records and Atlantic Records. However, maintaining her authenticity was more important than maintaining a "radio-friendly" reputation. As a result, Virginia signed with the small indie label, who promised to allow her complete, creative freedom and released 2 albums shortly after. She then contributed her version of the infamous ballad, Emotion in Motion by Ric Ocasek, for a various artist compilation, entitled Just What We Needed, Another Tribute to the Cars, on Main Man Records, then her 3rd and 4th album, a double album titled Hush Underground, her 5th album, Decoding Maize Minor and her 6th album, Upsound From the Underground, which was a compilation that showcased at least one song from each of her prior releases.

Virginia kicked off her career winning Top Female Vocalist and Best Female Solo Performer for three years in a row at the Asbury Music Awards, an annual award show, largely endorsed by popular artists including Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi. She also received various nominations for Best Song of the Year, Best New Album and Best New Band. She has since worked with top industry players such as Adolfo Doring, VMA winner for his Hootie & the Blowfish music video, "Let Her Cry". Just prior to Adolfo's unexpected death, Virginia was preparing the ultimate soundtrack for his "Got Stem Cells" documentary, co-produced with Michelle Cicalese and was accepted on as a featured HBO documentary exclusive. Virginia's live performances included some very impressive concerts, including her opening show for Tracy Chapman, at the Count Basie Theater, M. Doughty of Soul Coughing, sharing tours with Chris Connelly of Ministry, Miles Hunt of the Wonder Stuff and the Violent Femmes. She was both well known for her performances with a backing band and as a solo artist.

A large portion of her 1st and 2nd albums, originally released with Gig Records, were featured in the independent film, Never Among Friends, directed and produced by Jason Allentoff. Featured songs appeared on her debut album, Sweet Conscience and her follow up link., entitled Hush.

Song from Hush Underground, Volume 2

Thank you so much for all of you who have continued to show your support. I have been getting an overwhelming amount of requests to post more/new music on link. Because of the N1m platform, I have gained so many amazing, authentic and loyal fans. You all deserve to have your requests honored.

Unfortunately, I am currently unable to afford the fee that would allow me to post more songs. So, if you haven't already, please stop off at my bandcamp page located at link and order my entire music catalog at a hugely discounted price. I will use that money to upgrade my account so that I may honor all of your requests to post new music on N1m.

Thanks again for all your messages. The feedback I have been receiving has been so motivating and reassuring. Both of which are absolutely invaluable assets as an artist showcasing their music in the N1m community.

So, as I always say...
"If you like what you hear, be sure to tell your friends and then believe with complete confidence that you are becoming a true building block in the development of my career and fulfillment of my musical purpose..." And that is appreciated more than you may ever know.

Help further support my music by purchasing all or some of my music catalog available at most online stores. Or, head over to link if you appreciate savings!

Thank you all for sticking with me despite my lack of new music within the past year. You're continued support is far beyond appreciated.

Could I just ask one huge favor of all of you to visit
link, Google Play Music or ITunes and just purchase 1 track of mine for $0.99 (99 cents) or $1.29 (depending on the track) and then share this message with all of your friends and family? Please of course, do not hesitate to purchase one of my entire electronic albums or even my entire music collection, which is actually priced fairly low around $27.99 for close to 40 songs.

Anyways, this would help me out so much in trying to figure out where my sales are going because they aren't coming to me.

If for whatever reason, someone is not able to contribute $0.99 cents or $1.29...That's OK! They can still help! Just visit any online radio such as Spotify, Jango, Tital, Deezer, etc. and play or request one of my songs after searching for Virginia Music or Virginia Traut or Virginia Hush. Just MAKE SURE ITS REALLY A SONG OF MINE. That would be a great help as well.

All this help will also give me full access to what's going on with my royalties... Then, hopefully I won't have to publicize an embarrasing "Go Fund Me Account"  for this legal battle I'm pursuing.

I normally don't reach out for help like this, but I suppose that in times of desperation, a person must choose whether to ask for help and fight or just give up all together. Well, that seems to be what I'm finding to be true about myself.

Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated. I love you all and I hope you're doing well.

Peace & Love,

Virginia

Thank you to everyone who has sent me messages stating how much they love and appreciate my music. It truly means a lot to me and that's actually what keeps me going.
I have taken a rather long break... 9 months to be exact, in order to introduce my new daughter, Leilani, into this world.
In the interim I've been working on rebuilding my studio... so you can expect to hear some new music fairly soon. Please do not forget however that I have plenty of old songs... or should I say "older" songs that could always use your support so please do not shy away from commenting, sharing, listening or purchasing those songs too. I will keep you updated about new music that I plan to release and I will also keep you up to speed on the release of my book.

Thank you very much and I look forward to updating you soon. As always,

Love Virginia and Leilani
