This is the best album I came across in the last year. Lots of influences from different styles, top notch production and super talented musicians from all over the world. Great compositions and original arrangements. Every musician should listen to this masterpiece and take inspiration from it. Definitely a must have!


Fusion at its finest
Excellent production, this album is a superb example of music you don't just hear ... you feel .. on so many levels ... truly a masterpiece


Uplifting & Thoughtful
Mathew Shell brought an impressive mix of international artists to “Victorious” give each track a unique flavor, while maintaining a certain soulful vibe that moves throughout the entire record. The arrangements on “Victorious” are nothing short of brilliant! The influences and seamless transitions of R&B, Jazz, and some Pop make this CD irresistible.


Modern music with the soul and style
"Victorious" is another amazing, diverse, flavorful and great collaboration between Mathew Shell's production and musicians from all over the world. Together they literally celebrate styles like jazz and pop, R&B in build up of surprising combination - rocking strings, supported by live drums, keys, piano, each solo elegantly followed by next amazing note. "Cherish the journey" to me is the essence of the album. I wasn't surprised to discover that such a great album is dedicated to the people Matthew loves and cherishes to much - his family.

Hey Matthew! I just got the CD in the mail today, very well design and packaged! Keep up the great work! The quality of your work ethic was reflected through the quality of your music. Congratulations!


Victorious Is beyond Awesome
Matthew Shell, is such a creative mastermind of music. He brings a lot of fresh energy to how music can be listened differently today, and that is exactly what he has done with the "Victorious" album. Matthew likes to work with various artists & musicians of very different genres & fuse it together to create music that leaves a true lasting impression. I'm a Washington DC native that grew up listening to GoGo & when I heard Matthew's remix of Selena Gomez single "Come & Get It" I thought Wow, he gets it!! & Not everyone get's GoGo but Matthew got a Big Hit with that mix for sure!!

Fiona Joy Hawkins

Victorious is an amazing mix of talent bought together by Matthew Shell in the spirit of collaboration and using his wonderful ability to hand pick the very best music and musicians. Eclectic yet each piece resonates together on this album perfectly. Excellent
