The Attic Classic: If you had ever seen TEN YEAR VAMP live you never would have suspected their start performing was as an acoustic duo, before finding just the right band members. Another fun fact – during the decade-plus they were most active, the definition of a “high-energy female fronted rock band” would be alongside a picture of lead vocalist Debbie Gabrione and the guys.

Hard rocking and catchy originals set right next to well selected covers in their live shows showcased the band’s ear for great hooks and musicianship, while connecting their audience to the band.

Taking that connection further was likely the first wide scale use of crowdfunding by a local band for their own record label and making of an album. Not to mention the wide range of 10YVamp merch available, plus photo spreads, videos, podcasts, song placements into TV shows and video games, along with accolades from music media.

Following their first EP ‘Rockstar’ in 2005 came two others along with a live disc, all before their first full-length album, ‘Don’t Act Like You Know Me‘ was released late in 2009. The lead track “Never Know” is the Attic Classic.
