Inspired by everyday life and the vast intricacies of being human, Montreal-based indie-folk artist Vikki Gilmore’s empathic insight and wisdom beyond her years resonate in her songs. By drawing on authentic experiences, she crafts meaningful narratives that ring tenderly relatable, backed by soulful, generally acoustic instrumentation.
New single, “Little Red,” is inspired by the story of Little Red Riding Hood but with a twist. What if the fable was written as an empowering song instead? What if the girl was tired of the wolf’s predatory behavior and decided to set a trap? From there, Gilmore visualized a Wild West saloon-style face-off and decided to go in a country-folk/Americana direction for the lyrics, genre, and production.
