Red Vox is an American rock band formed in 2015 and based in Staten Island, New York. The band is made up of Vinny (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Mike (Drums), Joe Pecora (bass, guitar) and Bill Gagliardi (keyboards, guitar, bass, vocals). Vinny and Mike are the main songwriters of the group and Joe contributes as a producer. Vinny is also known as the creator of the popular streaming group Vinesauce.
In 2003, Mike and Vinny met during college and became friends due to them sharing similar tastes in music. At the time, Vinny had begun learning guitar and started writing songs. After playing in numerous bands for several years, Vinny and Mike would start their own band, Davy's Grey with a friend named Phil. They recorded a 7 song EP in 2009, before disbanding shortly after. Mike and Phil went on to join other bands, while Vinny focused on his streaming channel and group, Vinesauce. Vinesauce has since become quite popular, with multiple streamers other than Vinny. Mike also streams, however he is not part of Vinesauce. As of May 2020, the main Vinesauce channel has 640,000+ subscribers.
In late 2014, Mike and Vinny decided to get back together and form another band. Originally they started as a two-piece, however they soon began working with Joe at Red Room Studios. Soon, Joe Pecora and Bill Gagliardi would join the band, however they are not permanent members. The name Red Vox is said to have come from a dream that Vinny had.
Red Vox released their debut studio album, What Could Go Wrong on March 29, 2016. The album quickly reached the top three of Bandcamp's most popular releases. In September of the same year, the parody EP Blood Bagel would be released. On December 14, 2017, Red Vox would release Another Light, their second studio album. The album charted at number 13 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart. Three singles came before the album's release: From The Stars, In The Garden and Reno. A fourth single, Stranded, came almost a year later and was added to the vinyl release as a bonus track. Their fourth studio album, Realign, was set to release in 2020.
Musical style and influences
Vinny has said that bands like Radiohead, Pixies, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, The Cars, Wilco, MGMT, The Clash, Tame Impala, Queens of the Stone Age and Talking Heads were influences. The music is mainly guitar driven but with psychedelic touches. According to Vinny, his discovering the band Tame Impala was a major factor in starting Red Vox.
