A haunting roots-pop confection that offers a brooding moment of simple beauty.

Vikki Gilmore's latest release "Doubt of My Mind" was written, recorded, and produced remotely in collaboration with Mathieu LeGuerrier, as a creative byproduct of the COVID-19 lockdown. This endearing indie-folk reverie was inspired by the hardship and universal loneliness of a global pandemic, mixed with the anxiety of self-doubt that often consumes the experience of romantic connection.

As an indie songwriter from Montreal, Vikki Gilmore's music explores everyday life, and the unique experience of being human. She channels an empathic insight into the authenticity and tenderness of her personal narratives, and is blessed with a clear and soulful vocal timbre. This genuine artistry is further elevated by her obvious talent as a songwriter, and an affinity for acoustic sounds and organic rhythm. "Doubt of My Mind" is a haunting roots-pop confection that offers a brooding moment of simple beauty, and will appeal to fans of Adrianne Lenker with its fluttering melody and stark emotional complexity.

I don't call I don’t ask along the path of a shadow
Is that how it’s supposed to be?
So I won’t fall I won’t bask beyond and past every doubt of
My mind and its company
