Mighty Vinc is a French reggae singer from Strasbourg, France who sings his songs in Jamaican patois. It was at the age of 14 that Mighty Vince started to realize his passion for reggae music and start to translate the songs from the biggest Jamaican artists like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Garnett Silk, Sizzla Kalonji, and Capleton, all to understand the messages transmitted through reggae music.
It is the work in translating what was necessary to understand this music and the movement behind it that Mighty Vinc developed his passion for this mythic language that is Jamaican patois. It was after his landscaping studies and during multiple years of personal enrichment, work and reflection that the choice to turn to music became evidence of his obvious personal convictions and passion for reggae. It was around the age of 21 that Mighty Vinc began making his first releases in Sound system alongside Life And Creation Sound in Strasbourg.
Little by little, contacts were created and one meeting in particular marked the beginning of his musical journey. It was in 2015 that Mighty Vinc met DOKTA Zee, president and founder of Zion’Sound System in Strasbourg, who would produce his first EP Influence, which was released in 2016 and which would mark the very beginning of his musical journey. It is most often with Dj Tiblack that he evolved in Sound System, but also alongside Selecta Leevup and Killa from Life and Creation and also Selekta Lychar who is currently a member of Guiding StarSound. The year 2015 also marks the consecration of a childhood dream for him, his first trip to Jamaica, the essential transition from dream to reality.
To do this, he left alone, with a backpack and with only one phone number and a destination for contact: ‘Eden‘, a village located in the heights of Montego Bay. It is in the bush that he spent most of his time building houses and cultivating the land, living the local life as a form of education. Mighty Vinc deepened his learning of the Patois and Jamaican culture every day and forged strong and indelible bonds with his hosts.
He returned from this trip even more convinced of his choice to purse reggae music, and returned to Jamaica twice again at the beginning of 2019 where he recorded the title JUNGLE INNA DI JUNGLE (7.OUTTACONFUSION) featuring Grimm States, a young local artist. His musical style is not lacking in passion. He juggles between reggae, ragga, and dancehall, always in a conscious style and in a well-defined direction to share with as many people as possible a message of love for peace and unity. Mighty Vinc did not stop there! He returned in 2019 with four very meaningful titles; Flat It Up, Nobady, RidingDay, all available on YouTube.
He also released in spring 2020 the title NEVA STOP PRAY, the first single from an album to be released in September 2020 titled OUTTA CONFUSION. At this day Mighty Vinc work in collaboration with Slim Levy ; beat maker and also bass player with ERM band for Lee Scratch Perry. New singles Self Talk and Political Lie are the beginning of a project that gonna come in 2022 new singles also coming until this release .
