Biography

Born and raised in Southern California, Vicki veered toward country music after being exposed to many other genres of music at an early age. Among her musical influences are Crystal Gayle, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, The Judds, Karen Carpenter, Linda Rondstadt, Marie Osmond, Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, Patsy Cline, and Loretta Lynn. But perhaps her greatest musical influence of all was her very own dad who was a gospel singer in the Grammy Award winning gospel group, The Mighty Clouds Of Joy. Her first audience was in her father’s church he pastored, for he was a Baptist minister. There she learned how to fully use her vocal skills. It was a very forgiving group of folks because it consisted mostly of family and her dad’s many friends. It was a lesson far from singing in her room for hours and hours daily where her only audience was her dolls on the shelves. Vicki went on to sing throughout her school years along with working as a model. Following graduation from high school and college Vicki decided to become a kindergarten teacher. “I love kids! They’re so honest and beautiful, and they were always willing to listen to me sing! I had a chance to help shape the future of these kids. I made a difference by being their first official teacher!” While teaching school by day, Vicki was gigging with her band at night and on weekends all around Southern California at street fairs, festivals, and speedways. She performed in Nashville on her first trip to Tennessee and set up a booth at Fan Fair, currently The CMA Fest. She gathered up some players and traveled to Switzerland to play the 39 Days of Country Music Festival there alongside Pam Tillis and Neal McCoy.
