Vicci writes, sings and plays guitar with the touch of a veteran performer. Her live performances have received critical acclaim throughout the Northwest. Vicci is now living in New York and working on TOP SECRET projects that will drop this June, 2018.
Vicci was a finalist and crowd favorite on the first season NBC hit TV show, The Voice, which stars Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Carson Daly.
Vicci is as comfortable playing an intimate solo gig, as she is headlining festivals where she has either opened for, or shared the bill with artists ranging from Sting, Annie Lennox, Jonny Lang, Brandi Carlile, soul man, Syl Johnson to blues legend BB King.
As a 13 year old girl she balked at joining her school youth choir but thrived as a featured soloist that included a successful appearance on "Star Search" plus an "American Idol" audition that got her a ticket to Hollywood, which she declined because she was not ready personally and professionally for that kind of attention at 16.
Following the road less traveled, Vicci has chosen to stay true to her music and her fans. Over the past ten years, she has released 5 independent solo projects plus a live DVD.
Vicci loves you.
