"There is a rich legacy of music that originates from both the trials and triumphs of the African American experience, a legacy that flows like a river through generations and waters the world with
songs of hope for the present times and for the future".
This is how Victory Boyd, a 27-year-old soul and folk artist who hails originally from Detroit Michigan,
describes not only the sound that she carries but also the responsibility of what she carries as an artist,
entrepreneur, and advocate. After being personally signed by Jay-Z in 2016, Victory released her debut
EP entitled "It's a New Dawn" featuring her soul stirring rendition of Nina Simone's classic "Feeling
Good," among other songs including original songs "Believe In Love," "Lessons From My Father," and
"Cheap Love." The entire project was released globally and premiered in over 8,000 Starbucks locations
worldwide for over a year and positioned Victory to be highly anticipated in 2018 when her debut album
and "The Broken Instrument" was released. Victory's talent as a singer-songwriter and performer quickly
became popular in the music industry as she continued to demonstrate rare capabilities of captivating
audiences with her classic sultry voice, thought-provoking lyrics, and unconventional guitar skills.
Victory established a reputation in elite circles of influence having performed private concerts for
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, Mellody Hobson from Ariel investments and her husband George Lucas
the creator of Star Wars, Robert Smith venture capitalist, Mike Novogratz, Tyler Perry, Kanye West, and
many, many others.
After Victory's talent and spiritual depth as discovered by Kanye West in 2019 she was invited to be a
writer on Kanye's Grammy award winning album "Jesus is King" and went on to become the primary
lyricist for hit songs "Closed on Sunday" and" God Is." Victory went on to win her first Grammy as a
songwriter with Kanye and that same year she crafted the theme song for Russell Stover the Chocolate
Company and their first commercial campaign in 20 years which went on to be a huge success.
Victory began writing her sophomore album entitled "Glory Hour" in 2020 in the middle of the
"After spending several months writing Gospel songs for Kanye, and then ending up in a worldwide
pandemic and seeing how much I needed the comfort of a savior, I knew I hope to keep writing the
message of the Gospel in song. For myself first and then for the World."
Victory's album "Glory Hour" is slated to be released Summer 2022
