Although she already has a vast amount of experience in her musical career with a doctorate in musical arts from The Catholic University of America, a Master of Music in vocal performance from the New England Conservatory of Music and bachelors’ degrees in music and foreign languages from the University of New Mexico. Not to mention performing for Pope John Paul II at the Vatican, at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall and with orchestras in the United States, Europe and South America, picking up many awards for her vocal performances along the way. Jessica Victoria’s new album is the beginning of a ‘new life’ for the musician.
“This is the first album on which I’m following my passion for song-writing and mythic history. I am a classically-trained musician who still loves to do opera, orchestra and recital work, but this album is the beginning of a new life for me in many ways.
I wrote many of the songs at my harp, Merlin, which is a Merlin RHarp made by Rick Rubarth in Colorado. Some may wonder how a girl who grew up in Albuquerque developed such a love for Celtic culture and music. One answer may lie in our family’s roots. In the last few years, my research revealed the likelihood that some of my family came from Galicia, a part of Spain with Celtic links”
The album, with 17 beautiful tracks, has a little something for everyone, transporting the listener to a different time and place, while instilling ideas and ideals which remain incredibly relevant.
