Born in the shadows of a Kiama garage, influenced by the old school blues and today’s new indie genre, they formed The VANNS.
The VANNS began jamming in the early months of 2012 and went onto win the 2012 Red Bull Bedroom Jam, which scored them a gig with The Getaway Plan at the Sydney Hi-Fi, recording time in Melbourne with Jan Skubiszewski (Way Of The Eagle) and a set at HOMEBAKE 2012.
Recently they were the band chosen as the focus of Vivid’s Ideas session ‘Access All Areas – breaking new artists in 2013’, and have been receiving regular plays on triple j unearthed.
The VANNS have all taken 2013 off study to focus on their music and tour as much of the country as possible. They have started to headline shows in Wollongong and Sydney, plus support popular Australian artists such as Jinja Safari, Kingswood, Sticky Fingers and The Bamboos.
Their main influences are Ball Park Music, Jinja Safari, Kings Of Leon, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, Jimi Hendrix and The White Stripes. Mash them all together and what you get is the Blues and Indie styles of The VANNS!
