Artist Interview: Vin A
Any plans to release a video?
I plan to release a music video for one of the song’s off the next album but haven’t decided which yet. I try not to force these decisions and just allow the universe to tell me.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I like to play very weird instruments and have a rather unique sound. Between my 6 string banjo, my 3 and 4 string slide cigar box guitars, the different electric guitars i use. I’m a big tone junkie and I like writing songs for an audience that’s never heard me but they can sing along either way even if it’s their first time seeing me.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I really love Big Wreck, The Living End, and Beck. Jeff Lynne from ELO is always a major influence bc I love his chords and catchy melodies. Radiohead will always be a staple and there’s so many more to mention but those are the biggies.
Tell us about your passions
Coffee. Lol, I’m just kidding, not really though. I guess my beautiful girlfriend helps me out of bed or pushes me I should say. The fact I’m writing and recording my new album is a major excitement factor. And the fact my Las Vegas show is moving to a much larger venue on the strip in January, I’m also very excited about that.
What else is happening next in your world?
The Bronx Wanderers are doing a two week Florida tour the first two weeks of January, every show is already sold out so I’m looking forward to traveling (a little) again. Before that, my girlfriend and I are going to Disney World for two days so that’s going to be a lot of fun!
Thanks for an awesome interview, Vincent!
