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
