V has always identified with the phoenix, the mythological figure that ignites and burns and is reduced to ashes before rising again. He wears red makeup and elaborate costumes befitting his active imagination...soon, he hopes to build name recognition within the industry and eventually “inspire the universe" - Tom Waring - The Northeast Times Philadelphia

Bio

An eccentric performer and unstoppable powerhouse, V THE PHOENIX is sure to empower your spirit, engage your heart, and challenge your thinking with raw emotional lyrics, captivating melodies, powerful delivery, and visually elaborate performances including rich costuming, props, and multimedia.

"I wrote Gold Dreams to provide a voice for listeners who have sacrificed their dreams trying to survive poverty, who felt frustrated overworking towards a life beyond struggle, and felt the stress and corruption of student loan debt. I want to empower them to take back their gold dreams despite the obstacles they face and remind them that a life of happiness is more important than a life serving the system. I've been writing music since I was a child and even then I was experimenting with odd looks and creative expression. It's an obsession and a therapeutic compulsion; I want to lead people through music and art."

Having performed throughout New York and Philadelphia, V THE PHOENIX is now working on an EP "Kingdoms and Gutters"; based heavily on the theme of empowering the underdogs and enlightening the upper-dogs. While the release date on that is TBA, you can watch the official music video for "Gold Dreams" at www.vthephoenix.com and download a free copy of the single at http://vthephoenixmusic.bandcamp.com
