What’s up fellow Metallers. My name is Tommy Vext. I have been lending my vocal abilities to an array of bands over the past 14 years including Dino Cazares’ DIVINE HERESY, NYHC act VEXT & Santa Barbara Punk/Metal hybrid SNOT.
Over the years I have developed and infused many different styles of vocal expressions from Classic Rock, Metal, Hardcore, Death Metal, R&B and Punk. Some of my biggest influences to date include Phil Anselmo, The Beatles, Lynn Strait, Al Green, Busta Rhymes, Sia Furler, Anthony Martini, Layne Staley, Mariah Carey, Jesse Leach, Brandon Boyd, Fiona Apple, Jens Kidman, Rob Flynn, Notorious BIG, Carly Coma and Mike Patton off the top of my head.
