'Glory Hour' - Victory
GRAMMY award-winning singer/songwriter Victory Boyd releases second album, 'Gory Hour'. Using a new songwriting technique she refers to as “freedom writing;" a techniques which came from working with Kanye West for his 2019 studio album, 'JESUS IS KING;' Victory crafts every song on the project.
“Freedom writing is when I just sit down at the piano or at the guitar, and I just flow in the freedom of the spirit,” Victory tells American Songwriter. “I don’t have any preconceived notion of what I’m supposed to sound like. Whatever comes out, sometimes it doesn’t make sense, sometimes it’s just a melody, sometimes it’s a groan.”
