About Victim Or Victor
Victim Or Victor is an indie alternative rock band from Eastern CT. Formed as a solo project in 2014 by frontwoman Stephanie Lussier, she made a name for herself playing open mics and local shows. Influenced by the songs of Motion City Soundtrack, Say Anything and Nirvana, the songs are a mix of indie pop, pop punk, emo and grunge.
Victim Or Victor released her first 5 track EP titled "Forever Now" in summer 2014 on bandcamp. It was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mackenzie Christensen and Michael Cookson.
In 2018 she began writing a full length with 11 tracks titled "Choices." It was recorded in the spring of 2019 and then released in the summer of 2019 on physical CD as well as all music streaming platforms. "Choices" was recorded by Drew Cathcart and mastered by Mackenzie Christensen. Stephanie played all the instruments on the album. The vocals, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, bass, keys and percussion. She recruited local musicians and friends to record on a track, and those musicians became part of the live band for Victim Or Victor. These musicians were Danny Fleet on drums, Drew Cathcart on lead guitar and harmonies, and Daniel Jackson on bass guitar.
Now a four piece band, they began playing more venues all over Connecticut including The Oakdale Theatre for RAW Artists Arise Festival, The Cellar in Hamden, 33 Golden in New London, Strange Brew in Norwich, and Altones in Jewett City. Branching out to other states and venues, Victim Or Victor plans to keep playing to promote the album, "Choices," but also write new music.
