Bewitching vocal powerhouse & songwriter Victoria Faiella has traveled the world writing, recording & performing music with a noteworthy stint as background vocalist for Latin Superstar Enrique Iglesias. Her recently released CD “Wild Butterfly” elegantly intertwines string quartet arrangements with rock, world, alternative pop, soul & folk elements. The record includes a Middle Eastern styled reinvention of Black Sabbath’s classic anti-war anthem “War Pigs” that some have hailed as “Brilliant”, “Timely”, “Epic” & “Ingenious!”
A trained musician, Victoria holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music. Following the Cosas Del Amor World Tour with Iglesias she landed a record deal with Sony/Epic Records in Germany recording a full length solo album. A feature as the female voice in Criss Angel's Off-Broadway production of “Mindfreak”, performances alongside cast members from HBO’s multi-award-winning series “The Sopranos” in the variety show "Comedy You Can’t Refuse" & hosting a TV show dedicated to discovering Independent Musicians were subsequent notable projects. In recent years playing and studying percussion has become a prominent passion as well as performing & recording with the many talented musicians and friends she has been fortunate to work with including members from the Tony Award Winning Broadway Musical “Movin’ Out”, The Jason Crosby Band (Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Susan Tedeschi), The Dave Diamond Band (Donna Jean and the Tricksters) and Dan Reed (The Dan Reed Network) to name a few. During her travels, Victoria has shared the stages with the likes of Alanis Morissette, Lenny Kravitz, Jewel, Robbie Williams, Christina Aguilera, Donna Summer, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Shakira as well as many others.
Her latest CD "Wild Butterfly" is an eclectic compilation of songs that displays a beautifully unique musical range in a surprisingly fresh & cohesive manner. From the aforementioned compelling & poignant rendition of War Pigs to all the many lush and gorgeously arranged string quartet and piano compositions to the inventive rock tunes to the sassy, sexy, soulful track "To Be My Man" with 3 (yes THREE!) basses, all 14 gems on this masterful CD are bound to enrapture your soul and capture your heart. Whether she's lamenting the despairs of war or soulfully whispering over string ensemble and piano, Victoria's beautiful and honest voice delivers equal intensity with a style and sound uniquely her own & equally as spellbinding.
