Vince Cayo
Vince Cayo is a solo musician out of Bradford, England, and self-proclaimed master of the Cayote Rock’N’Roll genre.
He learned the trade on the roads of Europe and America in his youth, drawing inspiration from the likes of Flogging Molly, Billy Bragg and Bob Dylan.
Soon after, gigs started lining up and connections were being made, which eventually led to an introduction to top West Yorkshire producer Grant Henderson with whom Vince would make two albums, Bound For Glory (2017) and Lucky Red Hat (2018).
Vince Cayo carries on down the music path, juggling between this ever-growing solo project and his bass duties with established Leeds punk rockers The Yalla Yallas, and is always seeking new ways to broaden his spectrum and stay relevant, hoping that “his pony knows the way back home”
