Trained opera singer, Dallas born, Holland based singer/songwriter, Sandra St. Victor makes her Shanachie debut with Oya's Daughter, produced by Mark de Clive-Lowe and mixed by producer/mixologist Ty Macklin. The album further solidifies Sandra St. Victor as a one of the most unique, exhilarating and free-spirited musical forces of her generation. Oya's Daughter is musical proof.
"I've always sang my life in my songs. These most recent years, in relative silence, I've raised two beautiful daughters. This time was for me more creative observation at life and my place in it as an artist," shares St. Victor. On Oya's Daughter, these new stories and songs reflect this new sight. The singer and songwriter confesses, "Lyrically, I'm more blunt and still positive. I'm less concerned with opinions, more protective of my own preferences and realities." "Why Oya?" explains St. Victor, "Oya is the Orisha of change, storms. She is the owner of the winds. Wind is symbolic of the power of thought. My daily movement asks Oya to lift the words of my songs into the breeze, on the air."
