Bryce Vine

Platinum-selling artist Bryce Vine is slated to tour with Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE) in their 2024 annual Heat Wave campaign. The tour will be featured at bases in Hawaii on July 3-4, as part of the biannual Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) event.

Bryce Vine presents a genre-bending sound all his own, drawn from the bass-heavy rap influence of his father and the bright, pop sensibility of his mother, from a childhood spent between New York and Los Angeles. His keen blend of laid-back hip-hop prompted Entertainment Weekly to praise his “boundary-pushing aesthetic,” TIME to say he “sounds like the definition of cool,” and VIBE to assert that “You can’t put Bryce Vine in a box.”

He recently made his major label debut with “Carnival,” released by Sire Records, with inspirations that run the gamut of the pop culture zeitgeist—referencing his favorite sci-fi TV shows and 90s nostalgia—and commentary on growing up in Los Angeles. He effortlessly fuses the punk spirit of Blink-182 with homages to Tupac and OutKast. Since his breakthrough success with the two-time platinum song “Drew Barrymore,” he has sold out headline tours across the United States, earning further hits with the platinum “La La Land” (featuring YG) and “I’m Not Alright” with Loud Luxury, and accumulating more than 720 million streams worldwide.

He has performed on “Late Night” with Seth Meyers, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” “The Wendy Williams Show,” “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” “The Late Late Show” with James Corden, and “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” As Teen Vogue expressed, “[His] smooth, unpretentious performance really sold us on Bryce as a breakout star.”

AFE has been committed to boosting the morale and well-being of service members and their families stationed overseas through world-class live events and performances since 1951.
