Conversations with Vin Keatin
Vin Keatin is Certified. The rising R&B crooner’s debut EP serves as proof, as it has been well received by ladies and gentlemen who are glad Vin has taken the genre back from the dance floor to the bedroom.
Byways of The Bronx, Vin grew up mimicking the song he heard on infomercials selling classic Rhythm & Blues. From young, he knew he would be involved in music on one capacity or another.
Presently, Vin has been making his rounds on New York’s underground scene with trips to Atlanta taking shape. It won’t be long until Vin Keatin is a household name.
Meet Tha Dealer caught up with Vin and took some time out to chop it up about his music, the Certfied EP and the ladies.
MTD: What’s good Vin, let the people briefly know who you are and what you do.
Vin Keatin: What’s up everybody, this is Mr. Baby Makin Music, Vin Keatin. I’m the best emerging R&B singer of 2011 [laughs].
MTD: You have an EP out right now entitled Certified which has been said to be “sensual R&B at its climax.” Tell us what that means and how you tied that into the name of the EP.
Vin Keatin: Basically it’s what I call “Red-light R&B.” On this EP I just wanted to give the ladies a smooth introduction to Vin Keatin.
MTD: What were you looking to accomplish with this project?
Vin Keatin: What I wanted to accomplish was to take people off the dance floor and into the bedroom. The title was just saying this music is certified, and that I’m certified.
MTD: Now, you’ve been pushing Certified for a while now. How has it been received by fans? What have the ladies been saying?
Vin Keatin: The response I’ve been getting has been real humbling. The ladies love telling me you can play it over and over which I think is the ultimate compliment.
MTD: What is your ideal lady? Where would you take her to romance her?
Vin Keatin: My ideal lady is smart, ambitious, funny, attractive and doesn’t take herself too serious. We would go to Ruby Foo’s and just have some good conversation and see where it goes from there [laughs].
MTD: What does Vin Keatin have in-store for us next?
Vin Keatin: What’s next is world domination [laughs]; just getting out there and letting people see me hear me and feel me – more and more shows.
MTD: Let the people know where they can find you.
Vin Keatin: Find me at ReverbNation.com/VinKeatin, Facebook.com/VinKeatin and Twitter.com/VinKeatin. Go cop Certified at iTunes.
