Victoria Canal is a Spanish-American singer-songwriter. She was born without her right forearm due to amniotic band syndrome, but once her grandmother introduced her to music early on, from age six onward, she began taking classical lessons in both piano and voice and learned how to play at a high level despite her disability.
In 2021, Chris Martin, frontman for the band Coldplay, found her music through a post she shared online, and was later sent her Instagram profile by a friend. Martin later introduced Canal to the team at Parlophone Records. Canal signed a recording deal with Parlophone and began releasing music under their label in May 2022.
In 2022 she released her first EP under the label titled "Elegy", preceded by three singles, "own me", "pity season", and "swan song", a track that Martin said to be "one of the best songs ever written".
In March 2023, it was announced that Canal would be opening for Hozier on a number of dates for his "Unreal Unearth" Tour across Europe and the United Kingdom. Shortly after, she was awarded the Amazon Music Ivors Academy Rising Star Award, which recognizes promising music creator careers. She was the fourth woman to receive this award since its inception in 2020.
Canal released a dual single "Shape/She Walks In" in June, 2023, and shortly after was awarded the Attitude Pride Icon Award from Attitude Magazine.
