Music Scene Debut: Ioana & Soulshine at The Local 269


Ioana Vintu

On a frigid Friday night, Ioana and the Soulshine band heated up the New York City bar scene with some rockin’ Contemporary R&B, Classic Soul, and Blues rhythms. Beautiful, dynamic singer Ioana Vintu mesmerizes with a versatile voice that moves the spirit with the mellowness of a ballad or grips listeners with the rhapsodic power of a Janis Joplin.
