So here they are...5 musicians that have come together to express themselves musically, lyrically and uniquely.
In the pursuit of a name that perfectly represents who they are and what they believe in, a simple symbol was decided on....V
V is the collective effort of singer / songwriter Vin Colella, guitarist Dan Lerro, keyboardist Bob Stanfield, bassist Steve Janks and percussionist Alan Hoke.
Haunting and pop hook melody driven songs, explosive live performances and a no frills attitude are just a few of the reasons that V is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the music world.
After just a short time as a tight and complete unit, V has not only been gaining serious ground in the music world but is now beginning to be offered multiple movie soundtracks.
Now, V has been taken under the wings of production and engineering legends; Wayne C Davis (Breaking Benjamin's "We're Not Alone" and Ill Nino), Shelly Yakus (John Lennon, U2, Tom Petty, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, The Ramones and many others) and Artie Kornfeld (creator of the original Woodstock, former VP of 3 major labels with over 100 platinum projects to his credit and responsible for such acts as Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson, Sarah McLachlan, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd and countless other artists ) to begin recording their debut singles.
Keep an eye out for V as they continue to explode throughout the music world and the rest of the (not so) free world.
Yes, everywhere and we love every minute of it.
If a band was to rise up and showcase the best of classic musical influences like Zeppelin, Bad Co. or Pink Floyd and the new influences of Coldplay, Remy Zero, The Goo Goo Dolls, Breaking Benjamin and Matchbox Twenty and combine it with the powerful lyrical content of bands like U2...V would be it.
