Artist's Biography:
What happens when you mix the passion for Rockabilly and Gypsy music with the love for Jazz and Country music? You get a whole new genre called "Gypsybilly", add some beats and you get "Electrobilly". THE VIGNATIS have been rockin’ their Gypsybilly style for 4 albums.
The aurally and visually colorful Los Angeles-based group’s dynamic performances charter audiences on a journey from nostalgic times to the unknown future. They innovatively fuse American/European traditions, musicianship, and a sense of humor cleverly expressed in their songs. “…The Vignatis deliver fabulous vocals on great tunes.”, says Music Connection Magazine. Their unmistakable, neo-nostalgic sound is a natural musical union so diverse it avoids strict categorization.
Their July 2020 album release entitled “Red, White & Blue – Gypsybilly Vol. 4” is the 4th chapter of their American/European fusion of cultures combining an innovative, fresh approach with a solid rhythm section, and even some beats, vocals, guitar, and clarinet. The overall sound is seasoned by other distinctive instruments that paint a musical picture leaving audiences singing along, tapping toes, or jumping to their feet. The lyrics consist of topics from culture, geographic location, to overcoming personal struggles, often with an underlying sense of humor.
As prestigious voting members of The Recording Academy and Grammy Awards, THE VIGNATIS have performed at many esteemed events and venues including The Grammy Museum, Emmy Awards Parties, and as the opening support act for other renowned bands.
Music is their lifestyle. Their goal is to share Gypsybilly with the world by passing on to others the same joy they receive in creating it. Whether paying homage to their great musical influences or exploring the future, THE VIGNATIS continue to blend the old continent of Europe, with the new continent of America, from studio to stage.
About the Album:
These ten diverse tracks on "Red, White & Blue: Gypsybilly Vol. 4" were co-written and produced by TheVignatis, always keeping in mind their live performances, which have proven to be a pedal-to-the-metal experience. The title track, “Red, White & Blue” is one of the more Americana tracks on the album expressing the light-heartedness, joy, celebration and freedom of the U.S.A., from BBQs, to fireworks, to apple pie. Another strong contender for Americana is the second track, “Silent Heroes”, honoring those who work behind the scenes and “make the world go round” from the mail carrier and bus driver, to farmers and assembly line workers.
Experimenting further, The Vignatis added a premiere element of a rap section in “New Direction”, one of two tracks that incorporates beats in an Electrobilly style, the other track being “Third Eye”, a tribute to the U.S. military. However, the big curve ball is the debut of a horn section in “Crystal Ball”, a more poporiented song depicting a tongue-in-cheek look into the future. To round out the album, the last track is the Gypsy-oriented instrumental entitled, “Manouchified” showcasing classic Gypsy Jazz elements.
