Vicki Lovelee is an Asian Canadian alt-pop singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Ontario, Canada. Her music combines pop with dark, dramatic sounds; fused with orchestral instrumentations that immediately grabs your attention. 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 Halsey, Melanie Martinez, Phantom of the Opera and Queen.
Lovelee is unafraid to dive into topics like mental health, heartbreak, religion 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. “Writing and creating music has helped me find myself and my place in the world. And I hope my songs can do the same for you — to give you a space of belonging.”
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 Spring 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 in 2021. She has performed at events such as Toronto Chinatown Festival (2022), Night It Up! (Markham, Ontario, 2022) and Dragon Festival (Toronto, 2022). She has accumulated 70K+ streams on music platforms. Her music has been featured on media outlets like Toronto Guardian (2021), WISH USA 107.5 (2022), and Lefuturewave (Netherlands, 2022). As well as playlist features such as Eagles Nest Radio (2022) and Exclaim! (2022). She has also received notable grants from FACTOR, Ontario Arts Council, SOCAN Foundation and Unison Fund.
