He has been touring and recording with his band for the last ten years and he said about it “It was certainly a tough choice to leave my bread and butter gig but I could feel it in my heart that I needed to be singing and recording and performing my own music. I’ve never been happier!”

Once upon a time I have known this hard rocking band from Gutter in North Carolina. I´ve just tried to find any relevant or actual Info about them but without succes. Did they really dissapear without a trace? Not at all… some tracks still exist:-)
The band was formed in 1991 and the first album was made in1993. The band has aquired 1000 CD sales in a 150mi radius, Also have 2000 Newsletter Circulation. Several wonderful songs for free download were located at IUMA.com, MP3.com and Soundclick.com, Most of them I like Back In The Saddle, Indian Song an Yesterday dreams very much… just try to taste it!
Once upon a time I have sworn to love rock music - with strong accentuation of the word "music". I prefer music always, I listen to cds or albums, I do not watch video clips. But in this case I have to make an exception. Vitne´s music videos fascinate me, I like them for their nice colors, artistic side and storytelling...
Vitne Eveillé, known mononomously as VITNE is an American rock musician Joseph Kimbrell based in Oslo, Norway. While in Norway he fronted the Norwegian hair metal band SEKS in 2010. The band gained an eager following for the throwback music but lost its steam as members changed and broke up in 2012. This paved the way for Vitne to begin his solo career with the music that means so much to him.Inspired by artists such as Billy Idol, Mötley Crüe and Japanese artists X Japan and GACKT, Vitne's musical style reflects that of glam metal and gothic rock. In 2013 Vitne embarked on a solo career and his singles Destroyer and Not Far From Shallow Water both won “Best Music Video” awards by the Akademia Awards in August and September, respectively. He works closely with guitarist Julian Angel of the band Beautiful Beast.
The name of VITNE's debut full-length record is „Neon“. The debut contains all original songs including the singles Destroyer, Silhouette, Nasty Habit, and Rest in Peace. The album was released on December 3, 2013.
Introspective melodic rock music with hints of eighties glam, punk and new wave / A powerful and diverse mixture of glam metal and visual rock inspired by the decadence of the 1980s / Fans of bands like Poison, Motley Crue, Billy Idol and KISS will enjoy this record...
