For as long as time itself, Vicki Marie has been singing, so much so that when her daughter was a small child she used to ask Vicki Marie to stop! Vicki Marie enjoys a wide range of genres from pop, to rock, country to blues, r&b, go-go and everything in between. Starting with several local groups in 2004, and even today still sitting in with some of those groups, Vicki Marie likes to stay current with what is going on in local music and tries to support other groups when possible. Five By Five started in 2010 as her first foray into leading her own band. By the time 2011 rolled around, everything gelled so well that she can't imagine doing anything else. Strong female singers are what influences Vicki Marie the most. Songbirds like Bonnie Raitt, Martina McBride, Eva Cassidy and locals like Lisa Lim, Lisa Taylor, Dana Connor and Mary Ann Redmond.
