Vicki Lovelee is a Chinese Canadian alt-pop singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Ontario, Canada. She uses orchestral instrumentation and fuses them with dramatic, pop elements; ultimately creating a dark and theatrical sound. Her music and style embodies a combination of fierce yet vulnerable; having eccentric elements like Lady Gaga and lush instrumentations like Lana Del Rey. As well as drawing influences from pop artists like Halsey, Lorde and MARINA.
Lovelee is unafraid to dive into topics like mental health, religion, death and self growth. “I’m a huge advocate for mental health awareness and believe in the acceptance of all cultures and identities” says Lovelee. “I take painful experiences and turn them into music and empowerment.” Lovelee frequently uses skulls, pink paint and eccentric black clothing to help tell her story. “I’m ultimately a storyteller — through music, art and fashion” says Lovelee.
Lovelee’s most recent single “GUILTY” is about feeling guilty for walking away from someone and finding the strength to choose your happiness first. “This year, I’m embracing a new phase of emotions, such as confidence, pettiness, and anger. These emotions are all part of the healing process” says Lovelee. She is currently working on new music to be released in early 2023.
Lovelee graduated from York University's Music Program, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She also completed Canada's Music Incubator's Artist Entrepreneur Program. She has performed at events in Ontario, Canada such as Toronto Chinatown Festival (2022), Night It Up! (Markham, Ontario, 2022) and Dragon Festival (Toronto, 2022). She has accumulated 45K+ streams on music platforms. Her music has been featured on media outlets like Toronto Guardian (2021), WISH USA 107.5 (2022), and Lefuturewave (Netherlands, 2020).
