|Nationally known Vince Mira will be in concert|
in Shoreline, Saturday Feb 16
Vince Mira’s rise to fame has been a heart warming story for young artists and Seattle area locals.
This Country/Americana artist was born in Los Angeles, California and raised in San Antonio, Texas. The young singer/songwriter was discovered by entertainment producer Chris Snell (creator of famous Seattle night club, Can Can) while playing for tips in Seattle's Pike Place Market.
He started off by doing what he loved out on the sidewalk - you may have even passed him by while getting your flowers and fish! He is now a household name.
His first album was produced by John Carter Cash (Johnny Cash and June Carter's only son) and recorded at the Cash Cabin (built by Johnny Cash) in Nashville, Tennessee.
Prior to the completion of recording "Cash Cabin Sessions" the Vince Mira buzz began to spread, followed by a true media frenzy. First featured on KOMO News in Seattle. KOMO's affiliate, Good Morning America, picked up the story almost immediately and two weeks later Vince captured the nation with a breathtaking live performance that reached over 5 million viewers.
Subsequently, the Ellen DeGeneres Show aired his Good Morning America clip and Ellen invited the young artist onto her show. Another two weeks later Vince received a standing ovation on Ellen’s show while performing live in front of millions of viewers.
What a ride!
