About Vini Contreas

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I was over the Witham's house and they pulled out "Freewheeling Bob Dylan" and were amazed that I had never heard of him. My Dad had just bought me an acoustic guitar at Sears and the Beatles were on Ed Sullivan a few months later. I was hooked! What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Bob Dylan, Blood On The Tracks Donald Fagen, The Nightfly The Beatles, Beatles [White Album] Favorites are "The White Album" for the diversity of the tracks and all out excellence of the writing, "Blood On the Tracks" for the honesty and "The Nightfly" for the recording and seeing Donald Fagen out on his own killing it . . Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “I Believe In Jesus” In recording the Standing Man CD I added this one to the mix late in the process. It had a life of it's own. Dropping keyboard parts into an orchestral plug-in and adding KK on lead guitar, it ended up being a much larger track than I expected. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? Playing a show for a Junior Youth Camp in the mountains over San Bernadino for Calvary Costa Mesa. By the end of my set all the kids were on their chairs screaming and praising God and a whole bunch of them came forward and accepted the Lord. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I only have one thing on my bucket list and it's a personal thing. All I want in this world is that Almighty God be glorified in my musical offerings.
