The success of the third single I'm not from America... I'm from Hull tapped into a loyal following of Hull City AFC fans playing at supporters club nights and alongside talks from Hull City football legends Dean Windass and Ian Ashbee.

Vinnie Whitehead is an all round entertainer who acknowledges and interacts with his audience. He writes music in a punky acoustic style and with a self deprecating sense of humour his lyrics take a wry look at real life events and experiences that audiences soon identify with. The result is great story telling over a musical soup incorporating Funk, Blues and Country with a Hip Hop thread binding it all together. The music carries a certain, energetic pop edge and Vinnie is renowned for his live stage presence and crowd banter that has been likened to that of a stand up comedian.
