It’s been about 5 years since I first spotlighted the music of Vinny B. This singer/songwriter from Hudson, Massachusetts has worked tirelessly in one of the toughest industries, and yet never seem to lose his sense of hope or passion for his craft. If anything he seems to have thrived. Vinny has grown tremendously as an artist, in this time.

Vinny’s love of music and performing started early. In the third grade he felt the pull to pursue music. There were piano lessons, voice lessions, a Belmont University music degree. Endless gigs, late nights, writing sessions, booking and promoting…It all led to here. Vinny is a full time working musician.

A stint on Netflix Sing On! was a thrill for this artist. In between all the hard work, Vinny found love and marriage. He recently married the love of his life, Andrea. His latest song, “Kickin’ It” is a soulful, vibey jam. Vinny B’s music seems to exude joy, and isn’t that what we are looking for, at the end of the day?

 

  • A Vinny B Bop

    “Kickin It” from Vinny B came out on May 1, 2022. He said, ” I wanted to write just a feel good song with nothing crazy where you could just kick it with that someone you love and just enjoy the little things.”
