Hello! I’m Joe! You can generally find me behind the camera at Vamped Up Productions as well as assisting with internal operations. I first realised my life path would be one surrounded by music the moment I first listened to Uriah Heap when I was 7 years old.

Aside from producing video content through my production studio Vagabond Visions, I am a musician mainly known for my work with my band The Vultures. I just love being creative and bringing artistic ideas to life!

Hi I’m Aiden! I’ve been making fun content since my first Motorola RAZR flip-phone. I’m chuffed to be part of the Vamped Up Crüe producing content for print and screen — but with a few upgrades since the Motorola.

Our Crüe are as passionate as I am about making cool stuff and supporting artists. Hope you enjoy following along for the ride!
