Live at Trumpets Jazz Club, 2015

In this latest duo project, VINX combines forces with guitarist Brad Myrick to explore fresh nuances and textures within Vinx's original songs and some of the world's best loved standards.  

As Vinx explains:
"Brad's take on some of my funk/jazz compositions is refreshing.  He's a shredder at heart - grew up on speed metal - so he has an interesting sensibility when presented with jazzier challenges.  His skills are superb so we are able to take the music to unexpected places.  It's always fun for me to be able to find new meaning and melodies in the songs I write.
Playing together tastes like deep fried mozzarella - the tasty crunch of Brad's hot guitar riffs around the soft, smooth and creamy sound of my vocals and vocal synth.  It's jazz cat meets young rocker at it's finest!"

Brad Myrick is an international authority on guitar, continuing the tradition of artists such as Al Di Meola, Eric Johnson and Kurt Rosenwinkel.  His virtuosity in all styles gives him the freedom to explore every avenue of the current music scene... from chart-topping studio work, to intimate jazz gigs, to super-sized festival stages, Brad is at home in them all.  

VINX is undoubtedly one of the most gifted improvisational vocalists performing today.  Infused with tastes from around the world, his songwriting is a tour de force combining the best in storytelling with the heart and soul of a true balladeer.  Soaring vocals, intricate layered melodies and grooves, and his primal hand drum holding it all together mark the signature style that makes VINX a crowd favorite.  With over 15 CDs to his name, he has recorded or toured with some of the music industry's greatest icons: Sting, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Taj Mahal, Branford Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Cher and many others.
