By no means a stranger to the fretboard, Paul is an illustrious guitar player and smooth as silk vocalist. His melodies have a spirit of their own that runs true in his music. As a professional musician of 30 years, he played across the map of genres and hand-picked the strong elements of each of them and transposed them into his own blend of enhanced musical dynamic on many levels. The originality, captured emotion, and sheer musical ability in his music is a gratifying and uplifting experience.
Paul impressively released two albums last year. The first was his instrumental, 'The Girl From Barcelona' featuring blissful chords and lead guitar work that's full of feeling. The various sounds on the album range from flamenco, jazz, fusion, to blues. Tracks like "Big River" and "I'll Fly Away" showcase just how communicative a guitar can be. The natural, honest feel in the guitar licks speak to you in an unspoken language. 'It's Over,' his most recent album released in December 2017, is a beautiful, heartfelt collection of songs that are full of love. The incredibly infectious, "Save Me" is a bright and catchy soulful track that will fill you with a warm feeling and leave you with the noteworthy hook in your head. The mellow and rich sounds of "Highway 69" has a laid-back, 70's blues-cruisin' vibe that's full of flying, legato guitar solos. The title track "It's Over" is a very personal, gut-wrenching, sorrowful song portraying the struggle of staying positive and moving forward after a relationship. The solo in the song is one of the most impactful, emotional pieces of guitar you'll hear nowadays with a crescendo of flying notes for a colorful burst of energy. Being the first album he sings on, it sets an attractive precedent for his music-to-come and begins the evolution of Paul's dreamy vocal style. Paul is currently in the studio working on his highly anticipated new album 'The River' which has had an excellent response from those who are close enough to the enigmatic musician to hear the recordings in progress. He is thrilled with how the songs have come together stating this new album will be "the one." Paul Victor's contribution to music is truly timeless. His inspiring lyrics, buttery smooth vocals and as endless supply of vivacious guitar riffs will have you craving more. Check out his music and make sure to get your hands on a copy of 'The River' this Fall!
