Jessica Victoria’s album Songs of The Summer Realm has a little something for everyone, transporting the listener to a different time and place, while instilling ideas and ideals which remain incredibly relevant. Preceded by several singles, ‘Love Charm‘ is a single both whimsical and pure.
Born blind, her condition does not hold her back in any way, composing using Braille music and transcription and enjoying horse riding, ballroom dancing, baking and swimming in the sea (not necessarily all at the same time!)
Whilst some musicians may look to predictable approaches and stick to one particular musical stream, New Mexico-born songstress Jessica Victoria defies convention at every stage, exploiting both her classical training and singer-songwriter credentials and finding lyrical and thematic influence from Arthurian mythic history!
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 extolling the virtues of leaders of integrity who often seem so missing from the present day.
