About

VikKe is a Latvian-born singer and songwriter living in Bochum, Germany.

Latvian singer-songwriter VikKe (Viktorija Kukule / previously known as Vic Anselmo) is the first alternative female artist to ever attain recognition outside of the Baltic States. Hearing her stunning voice and inspired songwriting, it’s not difficult to understand why. She has the ability to draw in the listener, giving them a glimpse of her inner world of sensuality, joie de vivre and melancholy with seemingly effortless ease.

VikKe's fascination with music began at a very early age. She started with traditional piano and vocal lessons, but began to write her own songs by the age of ten. Her debut album “Trapped In A Dream” (2008) was chosen as Newcomer of the Month in Orkus! Magazine. VikKe's second album “In My Fragile…“ (2011) brought her even more recognition and received an enthusiastic response by fans and music critics alike.

Aside from her solo work, VikKe has also been involved in several interesting music projects with the likes of Antimatter, Anneke van Giersbergen, Liv Kristine, Rhani Krija (Sting), Kari Rueslatten and Duncan Patterson amongst others.

Following her collaboration with Dutch producer Joost van den Broek (Kovacs) on the album “Who Disturbs The Water” (2015), VikKe is currently in the studio with another Dutch producer, Gijs Coolen, collaborating together for the second time after the EP “Backyard Novelties” (2016) and working on the final stages of the upcoming record "Wired Nation". A change of sound and arrangement is to be expected this time, whilst not abandoning VikKe's unique voice in music.

In her lyrics to "Wired Nation" VikKe is providing a personal and intimate perspective of trying to navigate through life in the 21st century, with the impact of social media on her own life and that of others being a recurring theme.

Musically, VikKe's new sound is like she is channeling the essence of Billie Holiday, Dead Can Dance and Sia in equal parts, being served up on a dizzying blend of electronica, 1940's jazz and Hans Zimmer-esque drums.
