Today we’d like to introduce you to Victory Brooks.
Victory, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’m a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, California. Originally I was recognized as a rock guitarist, then I fell in love with pop music and songwriting. In 2018, I moved to Los Angeles from Moscow, Russia to pursue my music career with nothing but two suitcases. Since then, I have developed as a musician, performer and a person as a whole. LA is a city like no other, especially from a musician’s perspective – you can run into an artist who inspired your entire career, you can meet someone who wrote all the music for your favorite movie. You just can’t sleep in LA. How do you sleep knowing the biggest things in the industry are happening 30 minutes away from you?
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It’s been a long journey which I’m grateful for. I’ve faced many challenges along the way – from the day when I had to pack up my entire life in two luggage and move to the other side of the world to now, working hard to find new sound and put out the songs you’ll love.. and it’s been my extreme passion for the music that has kept me relentlessly driven the entire way.
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I’m an independent musician. Being an unsigned artist can be tricky, as it simply means organizing every aspect of my business myself. I pay close attention to who I work with, too. Finding right people to do the visuals/production is not easy; it’s about chemistry. They either feel you or they don’t. I’m very lucky to work with everyone on my team. Have you seen my new music video for ‘Love Me Hard Before You Go’ yet? A good example of big teamwork!
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
To me as a musician, a big part of success is knowing that people can relate to my music – recognize themselves or someone they know in the lyrics; feel my story and remember theirs. Music goes so much further than you think. Seeing my new song on somebody’s late night playlist from the other side of the world feels very special. If my music happens to be the soundtrack to someone’s heartbreak or 2am deep thinking – I’m successful today.
