Dr. Jessica Victoria is a unique talent and when we see her videos you will understand how she also brings beauty to the visual interpretations of her songs, she is without doubt a wonderful talent and a new star on the classical horizon. Dr. Jessica Victoria has performed 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, but this still doesn’t reflect the sheer scale of her musical output. With ancestral links to Celtic regions around the world, Jessica’s fascination with both the music and literature from these areas permeates her music, with lyrics (both traditional texts and her own contributions) accentuating the strong female characters in Arthurian legend, and extoling the virtues of leaders of integrity who often seem so missing from the present day.
So that is the introduction to you of this superb artist who we believe is going to go from strength to strength but don’t just hear it from us let’s hear what Jessica has to say-
“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 Harp 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.”
So do please listen to the links below as we think Jessica is a great new find.
