There is more than one artist with this name:
1) Vanilla is an instrumental hip hop artist based in Oxford, UK. He now has 4 releases to his name: 2009's 'Thought Process', the 2010 EP 'Night Visions'. the full-length 'Chrometrails' was released in May 2010 and most recently the LP 'High Life' was dropped in May 2011.

2) Vanilla was a French emo band. Formed in 1992, Vanilla highly contributed to the rise of the so-called "french hardcore scene", along with the now defunct FINGER PRINT and IVICH (among others).
3) Soca artist from Guyana
4) Vanilla were a short-lived girl band from Barnet, London, England. They released just two singles for EMI in the late 1990s.
5) An electro/house artist.
2-Continued) Definitely influenced by the then innovative american scene, VANILLA stood out with an emotional yet tortured hardcore style; very energetic and personal.
After a few changes in the line-up , the band finds its definitive team in 1999 with former members Yves and Yann Maisonneuve (who were also part of IVICH) , Jean LeBrun(former bass player from 1992 to 1996 , now guitar player since 1999) and Alain Vidal (bass player since 1996) . Yves and Alain were also part of the short-lived band EL VIDAL SONIDO. 2001 is the year of their 3rd album release on Paris-based label SALVATION. This new turn in VANILLA's career marks important changes on a musical level but also on the songwriting field : the members' various influences bring a fresh inspiration yet staying faithful to their hardcore origins (the DISCHORD/Washington DC scene remains an unanimous source of inspiration within the band).
