Vicki Kiely

Vicki Kiely (Pop, Adult Contemporary, Folk, Singer-Songwriter) The Full Length Album with a bonus Track ‘Mercy’ to be officially released with Sunset Recordings Vicki comes from a musical family, where singing and playing instruments was very much a part of her upbringing. From an Irish family; but born and raised in Canada; her culture was nurtured in her by her fathers love of singing and playing guitar to her from birth.

Her style is singer songwriter stuff that is rocky, edgy, and has a little flash of folk thrown in for soul! Parallel to this singer songwriter work, Vicki is an animal rights activist, and a Cove Monitor for The Ric O’Barry Dolphin Project. She goes to Taiji, Japan, to document and share with the rest of the world, the slaughter and capture of 1000s of dolphins every year. She trains new Cove Monitors there, and also runs a very special program for children who want to speak out for and protect dolphins. These kids come to Japan with Vicki as under the Mini Cove Monitor Program and they learn how to monitor the cove, just like the adults do.
