We had the good fortune of connecting with VINCE and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi VINCE, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Bill Gates said it best, “To win big, you sometimes have to take big risks.” In other words, what I believe Bill was saying is that success can never be had sitting idle and taking small steps. It is never EASY to be successful. You have to take a risk to “make it big” in life. I remember sitting at my job back home in Memphis, TN in the year 2019. My lease was up, and I was at my computer looking for new apartments. It came to me at random, like an epiphany: “Put in your 2 weeks notice and go to Atlanta!”. If you can imagine the feelings of fear and self-doubt that flooded my mind in the moments after. I prayed and said, “God, that sounds crazy!”. However, I couldn’t deny that my time was ending in Memphis, and that I needed to be in a city where the entertainment industry was booming. What better place to call home than “Black Hollywood”, the “New York of the South”?! Needless to say I hesitated for about a week, but I took the risk and submitted my resignation and applied for work in ATL. The following week I took a flight and stayed on my high school friend’s couch in SW Atlanta for a week, attending job fairs and interviews. Long story short, I ended up securing a job and moved to ATL the following month. I had to stay in Airnbnbs to start because I had NO CLUE where I was going to live, but I knew where I needed to be to reach my goals. My second month in the city I booked my first major gig with the Oprah Winfrey Network’s watch party for the reality series, “Ready to Love”, and the REST IS HISTORY. Since taking the ultimate risk and picking up my life to move here, I’ve had the opportunity to perform in many venues, release new music, and even star in some extra TV and movie roles.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
V.I.N.C.E is actually an acronym which totally describes not only myself as in individual, but also the themes of what I would like to exude and spread to the world through my artistry:


Spread positive vibes and energy, inspire others through song and life, make and relive the most memorable memories, pay homage to my foundation and favorite genre, and ultimately create experiences for people to immerse and engulf themselves in to escape from their reality, if only for a few moments. My self-titled debut EP, VINCE, will be released 2022.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Well, considering I have only been in Atlanta for 2 years (let’s not forget that the 2020 ghost year does not count), I don’t feel I have explored the city as much as the average Atlantan. However, I am a foodie and I absolutely love brunching! That being said I would highly recommend: The Southern Gentleman for an upscale brunch experience
BQE in Edgewood for brunch parties on the weekend
Suite Food Lounge for the TURN UP and great food to match

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my parents, my family, my close friends (special thanks to Lloyd-Malachi of Kye’s Touch, LLC for the nomination) and supportive fans, as well as my fraternity the brothers of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity of America.
