Cork based Vinnie's TV is the vehicle for American singer songwriter Wade Lynch. Wade’s journey from Carteret, New Jersey has brought him to the UK and France before finally settling in Ireland. His family background meant that a career in music was always on the cards. Older siblings played in bands and provided record collections for inspiration. By the time he started writing and performing himself, his knowledge of the music of artists such as Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake was already in place. The first Vinnie's TV EP ‘St Ouen’ really showcased the Americana influences that Wade had absorbed growing up. Songs such as ’Good Place Now’ and ’Idly By’ would not sound out of place on albums by the likes of Lucinda Williams.

Following up on the gains made with the 'Grapes and Ghosts’ album in 2014, which garnered critical acclaim in Europe and the US, Vinnie’s TV release the three track ‘Photograph’ EP. This is the first of a series of mini releases. It’s a strategy that, according to American front-man and songwriter Wade Lynch, is designed to keep things fresh and exciting. Photograph is an apt title, a band being captured in a state of flux and transition.

Opening track “The Ocean’ kicks out the jams. A fusion of Led Zeppelin style riff based rock guitar with flute that wouldn’t be out of place on a Gil Scott Heron track. Dark and brooding, it signals a move away from the lush Americana of the previous album. The distance grows even further as the band experiment with dance beats and sounds on the title track. Photograph revolves around a hypnotic accordion riff and a huge dollop of Ibiza friendly, Santana style guitar provides the other big musical hook. Vocally this is a sparse, nineties style duet. A tale of heartbreak and breakup. But rest assured the break with tradition isn’t total. Elena is a beautifully crafted piece of country/ Americana bringing us on a lushly played journey through familiar Vinnie's TV territory.

Featuring a large cast of musicians from Ireland and France, the ‘Photograph’ EP was recorded, mixed and mastered in Blackwater Studios Cork and was produced by BLOfish (Wade Lynch, Vinnie's TV guitarist Jacques Belghit and Duncan Ó Cleirigh from Blackwater Studios).
