Vincena got her nomadic start in North Philadelphia during the height of the Neo Soul era singing in church. You could expect to hear artists like Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, & Alicia Keys being sung which was her inspiration to sing and perform. Coining the term “Gypsy Funk” as her Genre, Band, & Brand she infuses Gypsy Jazz, R&B Soul, Funk, Folk, and Alternative with her debut EP “The Purple Phase” being the start of the Gypsy Funk sonic aesthetic. Live instrumentation is key to the shaping of the sound as it’s Violin driven, Bass riding, Guitar strumming, Magic. Having already performed at Made in America and SoFarSounds, she easily flaunts her irrefutable talent.
