Victoria Staff Releases New Song “Olive and Ruby”
Toronto-based singer-songwriter Victoria Staff released her second single called “Olive and Ruby” on April 19, 2023.
The nostalgic song is written about her favourite coffee shop in Vancouver, which has closed down.
Victoria Staff said of the song, “There was a coffee shop in Vancouver that I spent a lot of time in while I lived there. It shut down during the pandemic and I was devastated. First and foremost - they had INCREDIBLE banana bread and chai lattes, but also this shop was a keystone in my Vancouver life and it was gone forever.”
She continued, “I wrote 'Olive and Ruby' so I could try to hold onto the way I remembered the cafe. I didn't want it to be one of those memories that just turns lackluster with time and fades. I wanted to make sure I held onto all the little bits that made that place familiar.”
- Back in January, she released her debut song “Records & Honesty”
Victoria Staff said her music, “Is it a cliche to say I don't remember not writing music? You can blame my parents for putting me in piano lessons at five, they say it "developed character." But from day one, I was more interested in playing the pieces I made up than the music I was assigned.”
She added, “I write music for the same reasons I run and bake and hang out with friends and family – it makes me feel better, and I'll continue to write music as long as it makes me happy. And that's what I want you to hear in my music, holding on to the memories I want and finding a way to process the memories I need to let go of.”
