Robert Vincent is one of the most acclaimed new voices on the Americana music scene. Born in Crosby Liverpool, his upbringing inculcated him with a very Merseyside culture of storytelling and language.
A key influence would be the American country records that his father would play around the house such as Waylon Jennings and Emmylou Harris. He received an early education in Pink Floyd thanks to his older brothers that he shared a bedroom with. This eclectic mix of musical influence remains palpable in the music of Vincent to this day.
A versatile performer, Vincent has toured extensively with full band and solo. Notable performances include Showcase performances at Americana Fest in Nashville, Tennessee, supporting Roger Waters at Hyde Park, Tours with Paul Carrack and Duane Eddy who gifted him with one of his signature Gretsch guitars after his 80th birthday celebration at The London Palladium.
Robert Vincent’s most relevant and ambitious work to date comes in the form of his 2020 release, ‘In this Town You’re Owned’. Vincent observes life in both his hometown and the wider world.
Recorded in Legendary Rockfield Studios by Brit Award winning producer Ethan Johns who has won acclaim for his work (Paul McCartney, Ray Lamontagne, Laura Marling)
The talented 6-piece band recorded live straight to 16 track tape with Johns contributing musically too. Such was the hypnotic spirit between the musicians and the strength of Vincent’s material the whole of In this Town You’re Owned was recorded and mixed in two weeks flat.
Since the February release the record has charted at number 2 in the UK Americana Charts been critically praised both in the UK and Europe and USA.
At the midway point of the year American Songwriter Magazine named ‘In this Town You’re Owned’ in its top 20 albums (every genre) of 2020 to date.
