SHILLONG:

From a young age, Vince was captivated by the harmonious sounds and soul-stirring melodies that echoed throughout the church and the school he attended. The melodious voices of the talented musicians there infused him with a deep-seated love for music and an unbridled passion for singing, thereby, inspiring him to pursue his musical journey. Vince, on February 1, 2023, released his first debut single ‘Slide’, a tribute to the warmth of love and the beauty of new beginnings.

‘Slide’ is an electrifying new single that effortlessly blends soulful R&B and Chill Rap, creating a sultry and nostalgic atmosphere. The creative process behind the track was led by the artiste’s imaginative ideas and the production was handled by a talented team at the TMPros label. According to the artiste, the lyrics of ‘Slide’ aim to evoke feelings of warmth and a new type of love, making it the perfect love song for anyone looking to heat up their relationship.

22-year-old Vince is a student at St. Edmund’s College, pursuing his Bachelor of Arts in the field of Geography. “My given name, Wanjop Vincent Swer Rani, is a unique blend of cultural and personal significance, and it is my middle name, Vincent, that forms the basis of my stage name, simply known as Vince.”

Vince holds artistes such as Smino, Roddy Ricch, Lucky Daye, ArinRay, Phabo, Juice Wrld as the ones who have provided him with endless inspiration and motivation, leaving a lasting imprint on his artistic expression.

Vince’s musical odyssey has been a truly captivating experience, one that he has cherished every step of the way. Over the years, he has had the pleasure of performing in a multitude of locations, each one of them leaving its own indelible mark on his musical journey. However, one person who has played a particularly significant role in shaping his musical abilities is his music teacher from his school. “My teacher’s unwavering support and guidance have helped me to hone my skills and become the musician I am today.”

 

The singer’s education in music is the result of a lifelong passion and immersion in the industry. “Although I have not undergone any formal training, I have been constantly seeking opportunities to deepen my musical abilities and expand my horizons.”

At the same time, balancing one’s education and musical pursuits can be a challenging task, but it is one that the artiste wants to undertake with determination and perseverance. “I am fully committed to realising my goals and strive to make the most of every moment, whether it be in the classroom or in the studio. Ultimately, I hope to use my education and musical talents to create a bright future for myself and make a positive impact on the world.”

For an artiste, the applause, the cheers, the standing ovation – these are the things that make all the hours of practice, all the hard work, and all the dedication, worth it. For Vince, it was his performance at the recently concluded Winter Music Carnival. “I must say that was one of my proudest musical moments. I can only imagine the rush of excitement that must have coursed through my veins as I stepped onto that stage, ready to give my all in the name of music. At that moment, I was truly alive.”

It is truly a journey without end, this evolution of Vince’s music. However, right now, his first song, ‘Slide’ with a melody as irresistible as its beat, aims to enchant the ear and captivate the heart of the listeners. It is a breathtaking work of art that will probably make a lasting impression in the hearts of music aficionados and elevate the standards of contemporary music. Although plans for a visually stunning music video were once in the works, they have since been set aside, leaving the song to bask in its raw, musical brilliance, the artiste informed.

Vince’s future endeavours are a dazzling array of musical creations, ranging from the soulful strains of R&B to the smooth grooves of Chill Rap, the lively sounds of Jazz, and the rhythmic pulsations of Afrobeats. “Each work will be a symphony of emotion and rhythm, a harmonious expression of my love for music and my desire to connect with my listeners. I eagerly anticipate sharing these works with the world, and I am confident that they will captivate the hearts and minds of listeners everywhere.”
