Pilar Victoria is far from your average teenager. She initially began writing her own songs at age 12 and taught herself to play the ukulele, guitar and the piano in between school and learning to skateboard. Over the past two years, she’s self-released a handful of beautifully crafted songs, written in her bedroom in Houston. Since then, she’s caught the world’s attention all by herself and accumulated over 2 million streams on Spotify alone.
Following the release of “I Left A Party For You” in fall of 2020, Pilar quickly garnered attention from the likes of Refinery29, DORK, Atwood Magazine and Billboard who raved “Pilar Victoria is only 14 years old, and she’s already making more accomplished songs than most indie bands achieve in their lifetimes.” In addition to being spun by Zane Lowe on his Apple Music 1 radio show, “I Left A Party For You” has been featured on numerous prominent playlists such as Apple Music’s New Music Daily, Spotify’s F resh Finds, NPR’s New Music Friday a nd more.
