Vic Farrell started a band in Sydney in 2001 - 2004 with Garnet Meekings, James Henry and Tim Watts. Vic decided on 'Letterbox' because of it's association with teling stories and communication. Movies are letterboxed to frame the images. Her songs are stories that paint images of ordinary contemporary life.

In 2009 Vic created an album of songs celebrating scientific concepts, Carl Sagan and the chemical psycho-drama of love.
