Montreal native Vikki Gilmore takes acoustic, guitar based melodies and builds her own unique sound. Her wide variety of influences – ranging from Elton John to Birdy – creates a base for the eighteen year old singer/songwriter to develop a style that’s both classic and refreshing.
Gilmore’s mellow vocals come through strong in the title track. The acoustic guitar complement the underlying harmonies and lyrics that embody the universal feeling of being stuck where you are. Gilmore uses that theme throughout the EP and creates a piece of work that translates through multiple walks of life.
“Where You’re From” is an EP that sounds like the soundtrack to painting a sunset or watching beach tides pull in on a cloudy day. The tracks blend well together, making it an easy and enjoyable listen. Recognizable songs that follow the title track include My Song and The Nights Are All You Know. Both songs have heartfelt subjects that are carried by Gilmore’s simplistic lyrics that come together as solid additions to any acoustic favorites playlist.
As a whole, Gilmore has used this debut to solidify her individuality amongst a large scope of likeminded artists. For anybody needing their daily dose of relaxation and good feels, this one’s for you.
