In 2015, longtime friends, Jeff Gaston and Vincent Martin, teamed up as producers to form The Birthday Present, a multi-genre EDM and House Muisc production and DJ team. Exceptional song writing, arrangements, and chord progressions set this duo apart from the mundane and predictable.

Vincent is an accomplished songwriter, touring and studio musician and multi-instrumentalist (Guitar, Bass, Cello, Piano, etc.), and has performed and toured worldwide.

When he is not touring, he has been primarily employed at clubs in the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex at clubs on upper and lower Greenville Avenue, Deep Ellum, Addison, and Uptown, but also spent several years spinning in Baltimore, Md. and Washington D.C.
