BandRockFunk

Vinyette has a high energy sound, with a reverential core. Sonic versatility for the active mind and body, in a vast catalog ranging from uninhibited rock to endearing ballads. The deep rhythms of the songs dance and fuse with bright guitar licks and silver tongued, honey lunged vocals that give the imagination a ride.

Biography

Vinyette is a New York City rock band that was established originally in 2008. Nathan Frye is the lead vocalist with Danny Monico on guitar, Marc Ligenza on bass guitar and Jonathan Crowley on drums and synth.

Friends and comrades both on and off stage, the kinship between Vinyette is illuminated in their high-energy new album, live performances as well as their videography. Their first LP, "Every Little Mouse Run" is an eclectic mix of Rock, Funk and Punk vibes with crafty rhythmic changes, as Vinyette creates an orchestrated maelstrom, a pandemonium that is both daring and infectious. Their live performance integrates schematic back-projection, visuals feeding off each song, which are produced and edited by Vinyette. Vinyette has released 3 music videos from their new album including "Meatball Love Tone", "Twenty Dollar Doctor" and "Tattoo Crazy"; as well as tongue in cheek promotional videos including a special guest appearance by Vinyette mega fan Candy Crowley of CNN. 

Vinyette recorded Every Little Mouse Run, in true rock tradition, in analogue at One East Recording (credits include: The Beastie Boys, David Lee Roth, Sheryl Crow) in New York City. Yohei Goto (credits include: Keith Richards, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Jason Bonham) is the recording engineer. The album was produced by John Reed, Founder of Ronin Guitars. The CD also features a guest appearance on organ and keys from the legendary Jimi Zhivago (credits include: Norah Jones, Rufus Wainwright) and was mastered by Scott Hull (credits include: Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Beastie Boys, Rage Against The Machine) at Masterdisk.

Lyrics

Vitamins

Written By: VINYETTE

Vitamin high (ha),
Vitamin low
Takin vitamins
Wash it down you go

Bitter bite
Wash it down slow
Nurish with vitamins
Water down the blow--
Vitamin vitamin!
Take them so!

Wash me down that road
Vibin the right way
Still the same toll
Stole for vitamins
Grown from where I know

Bitter bite
Wash it down slow
Takin vitamins to
Water down scenes

Lucid and Slow
Blood fed gold
Bodies wilt under
Once praise to her
Gold plagued Earth
The rape of Terra Firma

Sugar would coat her way
Salt that water spun
It’s in the dirt now
Harvest has come

Sold me the secret seed
Watch it grow deep in my bones
It’s in the dirt now
Blinded by your tongue

Sugar would coat her way
Salt that water spun---
Sugar would coat her way
Salt that water spun
It’s in the dirt now
Harvest has gone

Harvest a son

Vitamins, Vitamins
WASH MY SOUL

Wash me down that road

Na na na na nah
na na na naaah
na na na na
na na na na na na naa
Na na na na nah
na na na naaah
na na na na
na na na na na na naa

Tattoo Crazy

Written By: VINYETTE

uh huh, i love ya baby
Way you keep
Drivin me crazy
We could go out tonight
He hit on you
Why start a fight

He can’t love ya baby
Seen it on his face
It’s crazy
He don’t know what to do
Your funny taste,
Your fake tattoo, well

He won’t love ya baby
Way he keeps his bed lately
My heart is outta sight
Bright eyes on you
Star light night

You can keep it
Wrap it in your fingers
Hall of daisys
She feels so amazin’
Hot showers
Felt this wind for hours
She’s breathin’
Beatin in between us---

Uh huh, I love ya baby
Way you keep, drivin’ me crazy
We’ll climb a tree tonight
This high with you
Feels so right

I’m gonna love you baby
Need you, need no bed lady
My heart is outta sight
Bright eyes on you
Star light night

You can keep it
Wrap it in your fingers
Hall of daisys
She feels so amazin’
Hot showers
Felt this wind for hours
She’s breathin’
Beatin in between us---

(4 piece vox harmony)

Tattoo Crazy
Love lost lady
Has true fate
Wandered off
Tattoo Crazy,
Love lost lady
Has true fate
Wandered off
Oh no I love you baby...
You know you drive me crazy...

Meatball Love Tone

Written By: VINYETTE

Captive in my cove and i said
No one even knows the lesson
One by one they are clearly shown to me
They’ve all been shown to me....

Absurd in his word, no danger
Meatball held her hand at measure
Jealousy spread, his heart strings broke
Finally she said no
My all night girl
My all night girl

Keep on lovin’
Love tone lovin’
Meatball love tone
People need it
People love it
Love your meatball

Keep on lovin’
Love tone lovin’
Meatball love tone
When people need it
They percieve it
Meatball love tone
Meatball love tone----

A secret for her cove, to show her
A mark only she would know-oh
Give her the plan,
Hold me just so,
Watch her sweet face glow
My all night girl
My all night girl

Keep on lovin’
Love tone lovin’
Meatball love tone
People need it
People love it
Love your meatball

Keep on lovin’
Love tone lovin’
Meatball love tone
When people need it
They percieve it
Meatball love tone
Alooooooooone

LOVE HE NEEDS YA’LL
MEATBALL LOVE TONE

Keep on lovin’
Love tone lovin’
Meatball love tone
When people need it
They percieve it
Meatball love tone

Every Little Mouse Run

Written By: VINYETTE

Every little mouse run
Every little mouse run
Every little mouse run
Every little mouse run

Every little mouse run
Every little mouse run
Every little mouse run
To the house, for some fun
Get some cheese, with the cat
While he kneads at my back
...in the house role,
Feeling bolder, with this soul
Why the Levee broke, man,
That was the coldest shit we sold.
In the little cat’s house,
The mouse up her blouse
The river carp jump up
If you didn’t know
Every little mouse run!
Every little mouse ruuuun!
Mouse run
Mouse run
Elephants have fun

In a world of cats and dogs
In a world of cats and dogs
Every little mouse run
In a world of cats and dogs
Every little mouse run
In a world of cats and dogs
Elephants have fun
