Christmas Day, and a last minute stocking filler was the moment that literally changed Vince’s life. Sounds a bit melodramatic, but that’s the truth.
Vince was heading for a career in sport (studying Sports Science at University) until a guitar with two broken strings and a bent headstock was placed in his hands.
“I remember just making any noise I could and being completely content even then, with my basic attempts at songwriting.”
After a few years ‘cutting his teeth’ in local music venues, Vince became a full-time musician. Since then his voice and songs have earned him critical acclaim and opportunities that few signed artists receive.
In 2008, Vince achieved UK-wide approval and recognition for his work, winning two awards at the UK INDYs from a field of over 100,000 artists. The result of which culminated in a live performance in Las Vegas for PEPSI and the Deep Rock Drive concert series, alongside established artists Marc Cohen, Disturbed and Lady Antlebaum.
During his career, Vince has shared stages with Jocelyn Brown, James Morrison, Newton Faulkner, Lucie Sylvas and was selected as a finalist in The Voice UK, coached by Danny O’Donoghue from The Script.
On Vince’s voice, Will.I.AM from the Black Eyed Peas remarked: “Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.”
Vince was also one of the opening acts at the LG Arena for Eric Clapton and Paul Weller after winning the LG Arena competition. Vince’s passion and philosophy remains the same: “Play live and play lots!”
