VINCE CAYO / CAYOTE ROCK N ROLL
I am Vince Cayo a solo, multi-instrumentalist, cayote rock'n'roll act based in Bradford, West Yorkshire (UK).
My influences cover a wide range of genres from mexican traditional music to hardcore punk, although our main influences will have to be Social Distortion, Billy Bragg, The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Street Dogs, The Gits, Tim Barry, Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, but most importantly Flogging Molly.
I have been writing, gigging, and touring as a solo act for about 5 years now with the opportunities to take my music to many countries such as Ireland, Belgium, Greece, France, the Netherlands, and the USA. I've also been lucky enough to share the stage with the likes of The Yalla Yallas, Matilda's Scoundrels, River Jumpers, Culture Shock, Barleycorn Bastards, Bettie Akkemaai, and many more...
Following an amazing european tour with Leeds punk rock warlords The Yalla Yallas, I entered the Loom Studio in November of 2016 to make my debut album backed by the production skills of Grant Henderson and Rob Galloway and the finest musicians i could get my hands on in the area. Fast forward 6 months later to May 15 and here it is! 'Bound For Glory' a 12 track album and grand labour of love
2017 has been a busy year with the painstaking release of a debut album followed by many gigs around England, gigs with The Cayotes, 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.
Plans for 2018 are to keep going at it harder than ever, while currently working on a punk rock album with the Cayotes
