Bio:

Velocity is a three-piece band consisting of David Victor on guitar and lead vocals, Chris Dodge on lead guitar and Pat Torpey of Mr. Big on drums. “Impact” was the debut CD for Velocity.This CD was a huge surprise! I never expected an album released in the late 1990s to have this particular sound. Velocity’s “Impact” consists of amazing and mighty vocals, bodacious choruses, a very distinct sounding beautiful guitar tone, and excellent melodious guitar playing.It was not easy to make Melodic Hard Rock in the USA during the second half of the '90s, but guitarist / vocalist David Victor (now in Tom Scholz's Boston) was one of the few carrying the flag with his band VELOCITY.

David Victor - San Francisco Bay Area native DAVID VICTOR is a digital marketing and SEO specialist, founder of a hospital live music charity, and performing musician.David truly lived out a “Rock Star” movie dream, being plucked from a cover band into the namesake band whose music he was performing: the multi-platinum band BOSTON, with whom he appeared on two North American tours and had a #1 Classic Rock hit in 2014 with the song “Heaven On Earth”.Like BOSTON’s founder, David also chose the path of getting his college degree first so that he could pursue his own musical dreams. Always fascinated by technology, David sated an early interest in electronics by pulling apart his uncle’s old shortwave radios.David put together the original rock act VELOCITY in 1996 and recorded and produced the debut album IMPACT in 1997 which included drummer Pat Torpey (MR. BIG, ROBERT PLANT, THE KNACK) on drums.VELOCITY performed throughout the U.S. IMPACT went on to sell briskly in the U.S. and over 5000 copies in Utah alone, where the album received regular airplay on rebellious rock station K-ROCK.IMPACT sold worldwide with deals on Europe’s MTM Records and Japan’s AVEX records and continues to sell to this day.VELOCITY also released the “ACTIVATOR” 5-song EP in 2001.In 1999, David moved to Los Angeles and found many opportunities to perform live. In 2003, David founded his own web consultancy, Boomcycle Digital Marketing, and used his talents to promote his music. LA bands included a BOSTON tribute band called SMOKIN’, as well as a high-level rock jam band that featured musical notables including Chuck Wright of QUIET RIOT, Jason Hook of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and Pat Torpey (RIP).David’s path soon took a turn for the cinematic, following roughly in the footsteps of Mark Wahlberg’s character in the movie “ROCK STAR”.A 2008 YouTube video featuring David performing the BOSTON hit song “Smokin’” resulted in David joining BOSTON to record in 2010 and perform for their 2012 and 2014 North American tours.During BOSTON shows, David sang BOSTON hits including “Peace Of Mind”, “More Than A Feeling” and BOSTON’s other #1 single from 1986, “Amanda”.David also appeared at BOSTON’s first show in over 20 years in the city of Boston, as the band opened the “Boston Strong” benefit for the Boston Marathon bombing victims.David performed vocals on BOSTON’s #1 classic rock charting single “Heaven on Earth” from their 2014 album “Life, Love & Hope”.

Album:

Super debut album from 1997.“Impact” was released on the short-lived independent record label, Rockhard Music Media in 1998.Velocity is a three-piece band consisting of David Victor on guitar and lead vocals, Chris Dodge on lead guitar and Pat Torpey of Mr. Big on drums. “Impact” was the debut CD for Velocity.This CD was a huge surprise! I never expected an album released in the late 1990s to have this particular sound. Velocity’s “Impact” consists of amazing and mighty vocals, bodacious choruses, a very distinct sounding beautiful guitar tone, and excellent melodious guitar playing.Songs like “Open Road,” Love is Dangerous” and “One Minute to Midnight” showcase the exceptional talent of each of the band members. In fact, each of the 10 songs on the album is flowing with talent. I believe that Velocity would have seen a considerable amount of success if they had released this CD a decade earlier or if the 1990s music industry had been less corrupt.Furthermore, ballads such as “Janine” and “More Than Tonight” stand out from the typical 1980s power ballad style because they contain such superb songwriting and sincere emotion.The vast majority of the members of Heavy harmonies agree with me that this album is an exceptional work of art.I would have really liked to hear more from Velocity with this same production and style. They released a five-song EP three years later called “Activator,” which had a more modern rock sound. I heavily recommend this CD for anyone who loves melodic rock or rock in general.David Victor sure knows how to write a top quality hard rock song. This album has everything from super vocals and sterling guitar work to choruses that are catchier than a virus. Full of hard rock gems and ballad masterpieces. David...hurry up and bring out the sequel !!
