Vintage V creates music to inspire and for the sheer love of its existence. Her eclectic music cannot be pigeon-holed to one genre, but rather enjoyed by the masses. She strives to make music that resonates with the world and makes listeners feel good in some kind of way. Vintage V hopes to raise the vibration of those who hear it and listen to it, which then raises the frequency of the world causing harmony and love.
Modern with a hint of melancholy, Vintage V keeps us captivated through her descriptive lyricism and intense sound arrangements within “Lavender”. I love the textured layers of instrumentals and powerful arrangements all fused into one heart melting ballad. She proves her talents to be authentic to the core through her expert lyricism, powerhouse vocals and hypnotizing delivery of every word. "Lavender" is produced to perfection with just enough soul to keep us grooving along. As a vocalist, Vintage V is gifted beyond her years and we can’t get enough! She’s earned her success and we’re excited to see how much further this rising start will go.

Hi Vintage V! What advice would you give to your younger self now, when you first started writing music?
The advice I would give to my younger self is to be fearless. There are no limitations except the ones that we mentally create!
Can you tell us about the meaning behind the lyrics in "Lavender"?
Lavender’s lyrics have several different meanings all in one song. Lavender touches on loving yourself even when you have lost the essence of who you are while in a relationship and after a bad breakup.
It is also about loving yourself when their is a void of love for yourself in general. The final meaning is about finding the beauty in the other person after you have broken each other’s heart and you are trying to heal, hence the words “Picture me as even if you still loved me.” I found that loving the good times I had in a relationship helped me to forgive, heal and move on faster than harboring hate. But every one that listens to Lavender feels various meanings behind the song which I love!
What was the writing process like? What inspired the song? I was sitting on my knees, hunched over at home with the beat of the song playing, and letting the music touch me. I love getting into an emotional and vulnerable state when approaching a song to write.
The next thing I know I was recording the lyrics, “Even if you done love me, love me”... I stopped writing the song for 5 months because I wanted it to really be different and special so I let it come naturally and this is the outcome.
Who are you biggest musical influences and why?
Every artist that has ever dared to dream and be different and creative are my inspiration. I literally listen to everyone from Whitney Houston, Blink 182, Jodeci, Radiohead, to jasmine sullivan.
What are your career goals for 2019?
My goals for 2019 is to continue releasing music and touring with the hopes of creating more of a buzz with my new music.
