Irish independent singer-songwriter Victoria Johnston is set to release her debut album ‘Where The Lights Glow’ which is out on Friday 19th May 2023.
Victoria Johnston’s forthcoming debut album of all original songs includes her debut 2020 single ‘Tar Liom’ which was shortlisted for Song of the Year at the 2021 Grammy Awards, and the lead single ‘Forever (In The End)’.
Victoria’s debut album encapsulates Victoria’s unique sound of blending pop and Irish influences, with her musical style described as ‘Ellie Goulding meets Kate Bush meets Enya’.
Victoria’s music background includes being a classically trained musician and award-winning composer.
The finished album sees Victoria put her own spin on ‘Irish, Folk, Pop’ music, and the album features Victoria’s skill of writing catchy tunes that stick with you after an initial listen. Victoria’s distinctive signature vocals remain the focal point throughout, with emotive songs including themes of light, hope, positivity, loss and reflection.
