Vicki Lovelee is a Chinese Canadian alt-pop singer from Ontario, Canada. She uses orchestral instrumentation and fuses them with dramatic, pop elements; ultimately creating a dark and theatrical sound. Vicki frequently uses skulls, pink paint and eccentric black clothing to help tell her story. She is influenced by pop artists like Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Allie X and MARINA.
Vicki is a huge advocate for mental health awareness and believes in the acceptance of all cultures and identities. She is unafraid to dive deep into topics like religion, death and struggle with anxiety. Her newest single “Crossed Off” is dedicated to anyone who doesn’t feel accepted and wants to find a place to belong. The title “Crossed Off” could have 2 meanings; one referring to being crossed off a list and another referring to religion, to symbolize the cross. The song will be a part of her debut EP coming in Fall 2021.
