PHANTOM VANITY is an electrifying band creating waves in the NYC music scene. Inspired by funk, folk, and soul, this brand new sound is about bringing truth, love, and inspiration through music. The group’s debut EP Vintage Slacker was released last year and is composed of 7 tracks that speak to the trials and growth that humans endure on this small planet. "I am singing about how we travel through all these self-inflicted barriers that make us afraid, lonely, and spiteful. How we mature and become comfortable and fair to ourselves, how we learn to love ourselves and love others," says venerable frontwoman BOYD. "I hope to sing songs that are empowering.” Based out of Brooklyn PHANTOM VANITY is the musical vision of Boyd (Big Daddy Kane, The Nth Power), Walt Williams (Joe Thomas, FloRida, Daley), Rodney Flood (Todd Carey, Matt Simons), Henry Ramon (Chris Turner & Human Resource, Gin Wigmore), and Kyle Miles (Nick Hakim, Marcus Strickland). They met through various musical circles over the years in NY and slowly gravitated toward each other before making the golden decision to become a band. Since then they have been performing throughout the NorthEast and establishing roots in the city that never sleeps. The Vintage Slacker EP brought together a mighty collection of tremendous talents. It is a celebration of friendships, some of which span over 18 years. Featuring: Dmitry Gorodetsky (Charlie Puth), Nigel Hall (Lettuce), Elenna Canlas (Sinkane, Big Everything), Rodney Flood, Joel Fuentes (RYNO), Steven Padin and Joey Secchiaroli (Kindo), Rob Lewis (Christina Aguilera), Weedie Braimah (Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah), Bryan Morton (John Lindahl), Louis Cato (Lucius, Bobby Mcferrin), Corey Bernhard (Killiam Shakespeare, Snarky Puppy), Reuben Cainer (Big Yuki, Animus Rexx), Henry Ramon, James Casey (Meghan Trainor, Trey Anastasio Band, Animus Rexx), Matt Owens (Mean Girls Original Broadway Cast) and Nick Cassarino (The Nth Power, Jennifer Hartswick) who is also serves as a co-writer on most of the EP. Currently they are in the studio preparing for their next release which will feature all five band members with some surprise guests to create something magical.
