Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Vinny Fresh, real name Vincent Balsamello, was born in Danville Illinois, a slow declining economy town filled with virtually no rap studios or rap artists. When Vinny was born in Danville he realized that his surroundings were not only dangerous but very inspirational, but the fear of being killed constantly haunted Vinny as he grew older. Vinny moved to Westville Illinois which is 6 miles south of Danville and slowly started his rap career. Vinny quickly earned fame but not as a rapper, first Vinny was a DJ, Vinny learned the skills of perfecting the art of lyricism, vocal performace, mixing, and musicianship. Every rapper knows the heart of the song is the lyrics, but the foundation is the instrumental. After being a DJ for 2 years Vinny felt that he had learned everything useful for his rap career and soon after started writeing and recording in his own personal home recording studio he constructed himself. Armed with a laptop, microphone, and ProToolsSE editing software, Vinny began his legacy. Since the start of Vinny Fresh's career he has performed live numerous times, mainly in and around the Champaign-Urbana Illinois area, Vinny Fresh has gained a fanbase of nearly 4,500. Mocked in school for being a caucasian rap artist, as he progressed, he didn't let that stop him. Now graduated and an Allumni of Westville Highschool, Vinny Fresh plans to take over the world with his tracks of the feelings he encounters at certain points in his life. Vinny Fresh plans on dropping a mixtape as soon as possible.
