What The Press Is Saying About “Unfinished Business”
“We never tire of hearing the blues, and the latest from Victoria Ginty affirms that. The album starts off strong with the title track, takes the listener on an emotional roller coaster on “Take Me Down” and “Hard to Move On,” and rocks our blues away on the upbeat “You Don’t Love Me No More” and “Give it Up.” If you love the blues with a touch of R&B and soul, then this album is for you.” – L.A. MUSIC CRITIC
“Unfinished Business” is an eleven-track wonder, a work of true talent infused with R&B, Soul and Americana styles which is sure to please the palette of the most avid music connoisseurs.” – INDIE PULSE MUSIC
“Kicking off with the stunning ‘Do Me Right’ I was hooked from the moment the bass came in with a ‘bobble de booble de doo’ line and then riffed with the martial drums and some sweet guitar leading to a sharp and angry vocal from Ms. Ginty. This is Blues and soul of the highest order and her music is classic but not ‘retro’. Definitely an eye-opener and one I will be listening to a lot. Love it.” – MUSIC-NEWS.COM
