Vinyl Thief. Artist Bio

Vinyl Thief is an electro-rock band from Nashville, TN. Easy on the electro, with a generous serving of rock.

The band proves that Nashville music doesn't have to come from the back of a cowboy's pickup truck or from somewhere inside Jack White's garage.

It can come from dance parties in your neighbor's basement. Or around your kitchen table, where your friends argue, "Who's better: TV on the Radio or Arcade Fire?"

Lead vocalist Grayson Proctor says, "In the past, people always equated Nashville with cowboy hats and rodeos. That's all starting to change with new bands that aren't afraid to take risks."

Releasing their debut EP, Control, in 2010, the band built a loyal following in Nashville and the Southeast.

This group of five distinct personalities is for those of us who like a little juxtaposition. The band pairs energetic showmanship and shout-along choruses with intricate textures and rhythms. Vinyl Thief takes the raucous rock of Cold War Kids and combines it with the electronic flourishes of Phoenix.

Music magazine The Deli says, "It’s rare to see a small band make such use of the stage with confidence, but Vinyl Thief held little back, working their way around a clutter of keys and drums as they textured rock, pop, dance, and just plain noise."
