Northbrook Music students were treated to a guest lecture by singer-songwriter,  producer, painter and US State department social attache Vinx De'Jon Parrette.


Vinx has recorded and toured with some of the music industry’s greatest icons, including Stevie Wonder, Sting, Herbie Hancock, Sheryl Crow, Branford Marsalis, Ernie Watts, Taj Mahal, Ricki Lee Jones, Darius Rucker, Vance Gilbert, Cassandra Wilson, Brenda Russell, Cher and numerous others.


Music sensation Stevie Wonder once described Vinx as 'the gift you give to someone you really care about', whilst The Philadelphia Inquirer hailed him as a 'powerful effortless tunesmith and a vocalist of uncommon subtlety and understanding'.
