VINCE CAYO / CAYOTE ROCK N ROLL
Vince Cayo is a solo cayote rock'n'roll act out of Bradford, West Yorkshire (UK).
Influenced by a wide range of genres from mexican traditional music to hardcore punk, although the main influences will have to be Social Distortion, Billy Bragg, The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Street Dogs, Steve Earle, Tim Barry, Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, and Flogging Molly.
Vince has been writing, gigging, and touring as a solo act for about 5 years now with the opportunities to take this music to many countries such as Ireland, Belgium, Greece, France, the Netherlands, and the USA. Stages have been shared with the likes of Street Dogs, The Rumjacks, Matilda's Scoundrels, River Jumpers, Culture Shock, Barleycorn Bastards, and many more...
Following an amazing european tour with Leeds punk rock warlords The Yalla Yallas, Vince teamed up with Leeds producer Grant Henderson in November of 2016 to make a debut album at Grant's own Loom Studio, backed up the finest musicians you can get your hands on. Fast forward 6 months later to May 15 and here is 'Bound For Glory', a 12 track album and grand labour of love. Bound For Glory was very well received and got fantastic reviews like the one by London Celtic Punks which said: “Vince has a very strong voice that growls out at you like Tom Waits lashing it up with McGowan backed by The Street Dogs”
2017 has been a busy year with the release of a debut album followed by many gigs around England, gigs with own punk outfit The Cayotes as well as taking up bass duties with The Yalla Yallas, and another tour of Europe. The greatest highlight of them all being the amazing opportunity to share the stage with none other than street punk heroes Street Dogs in Manchester in August.
Vince returned to Loom Studio in the summer of 2018 and came out months later with a second album entitled 'Lucky Red Hat' which was once again well received and described as such by Matthew of Jumbo Records: "More cow-punky roots n' riot from Vince. Part folk holla and part old time country groove, this channels some big themes into real gone songs!"
Vince is staying busy in 2019 working on a 4th Yalla Yallas album and a string of English and European gigs to go with it.
