Victoria Louise "Vicky" Beeching (born 17 July 1979) is a British musician and religious commentator. She is best known for her work on the American Christian rock scene.
Vicky Beeching grew up in Canterbury, Kent, United Kingdom, where she attended Simon Langton Girls' Grammar School from 11 to 18. She began writing songs from the age of 10, and leading worship since her early teens.
At Oxford University she gained a Theology degree. During this time she also learned more about music writing from Brian Doerksen and Brenton Brown at Oxford Vineyard.
In December 2002, she released the Shelter EP through EMI UK and was featured on various compilation albums.
After moving to the United States in her early 20s, Beeching signed with Sparrow Records and released a 2005 EP, titled The Journey. Her first full-length Sparrow album, Yesterday, Today & Forever, was released on 27 December 2005.
Her second full-length studio album, Painting the Invisible, was produced by Ed Cash and Nathan Nockels and released on 3 April 2007. Beeching wrote most of the album's material, although a few tracks include songwriting from Ed Cash, Matthew West and Joy Williams. Several of the songs for the album were written on Keith Green's old piano, at the invitation of her mentor and friend, Melody Green.
Her third studio album "Eternity Invades" released in 2010, recorded in San Diego California, features a song co-written with Steve Fee entitled "Glory To God Forever".
She was a worship leader at Spring Harvest from 2010-12, leading worship in the 'Big Top' at Minehead and was part of the Spring Harvest Theme Group.
In 2009 she was diagnosed with linear scleroderma morphea, for which she underwent 18 months of chemotherapy.
Beeching started speaking out in favour of gay marriage beginning in December 2013. Although the announcement was met with controversy and disapproval, she was nominated for The National Diversity Awards in the category of "Positive Role Model Race, Faith & Religion" although she did not end up as part of the shortlist for the year. In an August 2014 interview with The Independent, Beeching came out as a lesbian.
Living in California during the early years of the social media revolution, she first began blogging in 2003 and eventually switched to a WordPress-powered site.
In December 2012, Beeching tweeted that she was moving to London. In February 2013, she tweeted that she was working on a PhD in the ethics of technology at Durham University, exploring religion and technology, but has since blogged "originally I was researching technology and ethics, but the topic of Christianity and sexuality became my main PhD focus earlier this year".
She is a regular television and radio commentator on issues related to ethics, technology, women, Christianity, music and social media.
