Vick Lejet, an artist from Sydney, Australia, whose voice and composure motivates those who listen with its positivity and happy aura, speaks about his origins, and his music while delving into what makes him stand out from the crowd and why he is the next artist to gather lots of traction.
Vick states that the name came to form because “Vick being my first name and I used to always say let’s jet so I thought of how people said leggo so instead I decided to come up with the word ‘lejet’.
Vick also states that on his road to becoming where he is, he suffered a lot, however, he benefitted in the end from all the tribulations in which occurred. “In person, I’m always laughing and making jokes but I have been through a lot which is why I want to use my experiences to give hope to those who need it.”
“Being of mixed race in Sydney has been tough for me. Being bullied throughout the entirety of my adolescent years because of that and it was because I was so different to others; especially personality wise. I also lost my grandmother in 2014 which was the hardest thing to accept and I promised her that I will do big things with my music.”
Vick however persevered and came out positively after what he suffered.
“Despite everything I’ve been through, I didn’t come out bitter, but instead, I came out stronger. I use all that negative energy and channel it into my music which is the complete opposite of all that. As you can tell, most of my music is happy, which is how I want people to feel.”
Vick also speaks more about his past and how it shaped him. “I’ve had a lot of poor decision making in the past but it has definitely taught me to be more cautious with how I invest my time. It has made me become more clear of what I want and don’t want in life.”
Vick says that readers can look forward to his new EP coming out this year titled “223” with Thrillboy. Vick also is planning to network with more artists, create more projects and possibly do “some shows and make videos.”

“I would definitely say that I don’t fit the stereotype within the genre of music I’m doing but, I would define myself as someone who is full of hope and always wanting to be a positive role model to uplift those going through a lot,” Vick states when asked how he would both classify himself as a person and as an artist.
“The production with Thrillboy has helped bring out the best in me. The tone of my voice and delivery compliments it well which is why I believe what we have achieved is a bit different. I also sing/rap about things I know about and have experienced.”
Vick believes that his greatest achievement as an artist has been finding his own sound. “It took me years and it wasn’t until I made ‘Lay Down’ that I finally knew that I was onto something. I would also say creating quality songs such as ‘Up’ and ‘Ocean’ which helped my foundation a lot.”
In the future, Vick would like to move from Australia. “I feel like I don’t belong and in regards to music, there really isn’t any areas of opportunity for me here so I feel as if I’m wasting my time. I would like to discover Europe and Canada and see what would suit me most. This year for me is all about growth and travelling.”
Vick would also like to work with these artists and producers in the future:
Zaytoven, Nav, Ramriddlz, Drake, Madeintyo, Oj Da Juiceman, Plies, 50 Cent and many more.
