Artist Biography:
Winning the esteemed Guitar Player Magazine’s ‘Guitar Superstar’ award in 2008, Vicki plays her own percussive technique of 'slap-tap' acoustic guitar, and has been showcased as one of the world’s top guitarists at festivals such as The International Montreal Jazz Festival, Germany’s Open Strings Guitar Festival, Italy’s Soave Guitar Festival and hundreds of venues and Performing Arts Centers across the US and abroad.

In addition to being a dazzling instrumentalist, Vicki is an award-winning singer/songwriter with a high-energy stage presence. Drawing from folk, jazz, pop, soul and world music, whether covering the tunes of others or presenting her own compositions, Vicki’s distinctive style pushes the boundaries of the singer/songwriter genre into new territories.

While hopping between continents for performances, master classes and clinics, Vicki loves teaching and has five Instructional DVDs to her credit and is in high demand at clinics and music camps all over the world. She has two CDs released on Germanys ‘Acoustic Music Records’ and two Self-released CDs.

“If I could play like Vicki, I’d stay home and entertain myself.” - Steve Vai
