About The Vantage:
Sitting in a hotel room outside of New York City, founding members James Mason (Vocals) and Jackson Wise (Guitar & Vocals) finished writing what would become The Vantage’s debut single “On My Way.” They had no idea that their anthemic, upbeat track would receive over 100K views on Soundcloud within the first 3 months of release. From that moment on they haven’t looked back, and are anticipating a long road ahead.
The duo’s journey did not start off easy considering most of the creative process has taken place while living nearly 1700 miles apart. The two met in 2009 when Jackson was recruited to play in their previous band. It was there that they developed a strong writing relationship. The group disbanded in 2011, but he and Jackson remained friends and continued to share ideas electronically. When the opportunity arose to record some new material with New Jersey-based producer, Rob Freeman, the two decided that they wanted another shot. The Vantage was born.
Fast-forward a year and it’s easy to see the gears are beginning to turn. In March of 2013, the band played their first show at SXSW alongside The Dangerous Summer, American Authors, and The Mowgli’s. The duo released their Summer EP on May 28th, 2013. AbsolutePunk.net gave the EP an 8/10 saying, “Mason and Wise have finally recognized their potential and embraced it with The Vantage and Summer, as each track showcases a different skill from the two musicians.” That same week, the group reached the #2 spot on Billboard’s Next Big Sound Fastest Accelerating Artist Chart. On July 23rd, “On My Way” was featured in the ABC Family series premiere of The Vineyard.
With no plans of losing the momentum, The Vantage returned to the studio in August 2013 to finish recording their debut record, which they hope to release by the spring of 2014. They will be re-releasing their EP under the new title ‘This Time Now’ November 26th along with a music video for “On My Way.” It’s not hard to see these guys have a rare drive and dedication to making music with the talent to match. Watch out for them because The Vantage is on the horizon.
