Despite growing up in Albuquerque, Jessica Victoria has taken inspiration from her celtic roots for her new album, Songs of the Summer Realm. Recording the album at Watercolour Music in the Scottish Highlands, Jessica collaborated with a number of well known Scottish artists on the album including Lorne MacDougall of the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and the Tannahill Weavers.
New Mexico-born and Albuquerque-bred 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 in this new album, which is available to buy now – https://jessicavictoria.com/songs-of-the-summer-realm/
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.
We are absolutely loving the album and the message behind it and with 17 epic tracks there is something for everyone. The album will be available to stream on major platforms from 15th May but if we were you, we’d get ahead of the game and buy the deluxe version with two extra tracks now from Jessica’s website above… you won’t regret it!
