Bluesy and soulful, VICTORY, who originally hails from Detroit, Michigan, brings the full measure of her talent to music that blends gospel, blues, folk, pop, and soul musical styles. From the start of her career, VICTORY has always been about finding fresh ways to express her truth, and though musically grounded in her unique R&B fusion style, “Glory Hour” is a bold and inspirational 18-track collection that marks her first official foray into gospel music. Produced by Kaleb Moten, VICTORY set the tone for the stylistically eclectic album, and features singles “Just Like In Heaven” and “El Shaddai“, which has garnered 1.2M views and close to half a million streams.
VICTORY wrote, recorded and co-produced the new project at The Secret Place, the New Jersey based studio she opened in early 2020, and penned her tunes on a baby grand piano. On “Glory Hour,” the singer-songwriter plays multiple instruments, from the piano on her ballad “Glory to God”; to acoustic guitar on “Just Like in Heaven.” The album also includes the choir and blues-infused “Rejoice,” and classic hymns such as “His Eye is On The Sparrow,” and “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” VICTORY was accompanied by an ensemble of musicians on tracks produced by Kaleb Moten, Space Jones and Grammy® Award winner Stephen Blake Kanicka.
