Vicki Lovelee is a Chinese Canadian alt-pop singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Toronto. She uses orchestral instrumentation and fuses them with dramatic, pop elements; ultimately creating a dark and theatrical sound. Lovelee frequently uses skulls, pink paint and eccentric black clothing to help tell her story. Her music embodies a combination of edgy yet vulnerable; having eccentric elements like Lady Gaga and lush instrumentations like Lana Del Rey, while her writing and producing styles are influenced by pop artists like MARINA and Lorde.
Lyrically, Lovelee is unafraid to dive deep into topics like religion, death and struggle with anxiety, like she does on her single “Crossed Off” (April 2021). “I like to take painful experiences and turn them into music and empowerment,” says Lovelee.
The “Crossed Off" music video was just released in September 2021. It was filmed in a beautiful Toronto cathedral and featured lots of visuals and symbolism that complements the song. "Crossed Off" will be one of five tracks on her debut EP (coming Oct 2021). The EP will include singles like “Intruder” and “Summer Is Fallin”. “This EP represents the first release of a three-part series,” says Lovelee. “It starts with our most painful experiences (like depression and heartbreak) and takes listeners through the roller coaster of emotions, in order to find peace of mind at the end.”
Lovelee’s music has been featured by online publications like Toronto Guardian (2021), WISH USA 107.5 (2021), and Lefuturewave (Netherlands, 2020). She is a huge advocate for mental health awareness and believes in the acceptance of all cultures and identities.
