VESUVEO CELEBRATES 25 YEARS ON THE MIC!

“I started writing rhymes back in high school around 1987,” says Vesuveo. Smitten by mid-late 80s rap groups like Run-DMC, Eric B & Rakim, LL Cool J, MC Lyte, Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, EPMD, X-Clan, Too Short, and NWA, he put pen to pad, picked up the mic, and started cutting 4-track demoes with some friends. “That’s when I knew,” he remembers, “The moment I heard my voice over the speakers on playback, I was hooked.” Above are two pics from 1988, one from his very first live show at the annual Hastings High School talent show in New York (that’s Vesuveo center stage with the VW medallion) and a cutout from his senior yearbook, where he was voted “Most likely to be LL Cool J”. Little would he know where the journey would take him over the past quarter century.

The Collective Music Group announced the line-up for Volume 2 of their Valley Rising Compilation, a project highlighting upcoming talent from the vibrant local music scene. 10 bands out of 70 submissoins made the final cut, and Vesuveo was one of them.

NEW MUSIC VIDEO “I JUST WANNA HOLD U”

Vesuveo drops the 3rd single off his debut solo album Shine with a brand new video for “I Just Wanna Hold U” starring Huong Phan, and features the two of them salsa dancing mixed with archival footage from the 1940s and 50s. He shot it this past summer at an abandoned building in Hadley, MA and in the cornfields of Northampton, MA. It’s the 2nd video that Vesuveo directed, filmed and edited, the first being “Spark Nasty” released last year. Track produced by Janko Radosavljevic.

NEW LIVE VIDEO “ICE ICE BABY”

For the 23rd annual Transperformance, Vesuveo dusted off his 90s dance moves and took the stage as Vanilla Ice, white boy high-top fade and all, to perform Robert Van Winkle’s smash “Ice Ice Baby” with back-up dancers Ty (Jovan James) & Kwon Doe (Janeen Murray) and DJ Vinyl Child on the wheels of steel.
