Vinx De'Jon Parrette – creative, A&R
The word "unique" is overused almost as much as the word "loved" but in the case of VINX, both words are true.
Today, between teaching at The Berklee College of Music in Boston, coaching private clients in songwriting, directing his acclaimed creativity workshop series, The Songwriter Soul Kitchen and the Artist Within, and his active international touring schedule, Vinx lends his exceptional musicianship, intuitive style and industry experience to help identify new talent and help our clients grow into careers they can be proud of.
VINX is responsible for the development and ground-breaking use of folkloric instruments in contemporary music, as well as the use of vocal looping and effects technology. He has returned the vocalist to the ranks of musician and secured a place for himself in the history of music. Vinx blends the voice of an old school crooner with hypnotic Afro/Caribbean rhythms and his cutting edge audio technology… It is truly a treat to hear him create in the moment with intricate layers of raw emotion.
Whether on tour or in the studio, VINX has worked with and inspired some of the greatest music icons of our time such as Stevie Wonder, Sting, Herbie Hancock, Branford Marsalis, Taj Mahal, Seal, Patrice Rushen, Cassandra Wilson, Harvey Mason, Brenda Russell, Rachelle Farrell, Sheryl Crow, Zap Mama, Hiroshima and Cher. Today, between teaching at The Berklee College of Music in Boston, directing his acclaimed songwriting and creativity workshop series, The Songwriter Soul Kitchen, and his active international touring schedule, Vinx lends his exceptional musicianship, intuitive style and industry experience to help identify new talent and help our clients grow into careers they can be proud of. As a former Olympic Athlete, Vinx inspires nothing but the best from our team of professionals and the clients we serve.
