Working class hero for the 21st century Robert Vincent explores the commonality of the human experience on his third full-length album "In This Town You’re Owned" out February 14, 2020 via Thirty Tigers.
"People say you should just stick to music and keep your opinions to yourself but I find that entirely the opposite of what songwriting should be," explains award-winning singer-songwriter Robert Vincent of his third album, In This Town You’re Owned. He continues, "we should be the ones that are bothered by what goes on in society."
On In This Town You’re Owned, Vincent returns with his most relevant album to date, produced by BRIT (British Record Industry) Award-winning Ethan Johns — acclaimed for his production work with Paul McCartney, Kings Of Leon and Laura Marling, among others. With the new album, Vincent deals in hard truths and easy melodies, furthering the tradition of classically crafted songwriting that asks the difficult questions about everyday emotions.
"I’m just really interested in the human condition and how people react to things."
In This Town You’re Owned sees Vincent at his most contemporary, and with a bigger scope of vision than ever before.
Robert Vincent is an award-winning singer/songwriter from Liverpool – having received the inaugural Emerging Artist Award from “Whispering” Bob Harris in 2016 and UK Americana Music Association’s UK Album of The Year in 2018.
Seeing him play at the Bluebird Café’s Bluecoat event, the legendary broadcaster immediately invited Robert to record an Under The Apple Tree Session in his home studio and for his BBC Radio 2 “Country” show – describing him as “absolutely magnetic”.
Vincent credits his story-telling style of songwriting to his upbringing – where his formative years were spent listening to his father’s record collection including Emmylou Harris, Charlie Rich and Waylon Jennings, plus his older brother’s introduction to Pink Floyd.
In 2013, he released his debut album, Life In Easy Steps – with the title track receiving national airplay from Janice Long and Radcliffe & Maconie – and he’s subsequently toured the UK supporting Paul Carrack, James Blunt, Squeeze and The Pretenders at Royal Albert Hall.
Recorded in his hometown and mixed in Nashville by Grammy Award-winning producer Ray Kennedy, his second full-length release I’ll Make The Most of My Sins sees him sited by The Guardian as one the UK’s top Americana artists.
Robert hit the road in Spring for Hearts of Glass Tour supporting Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman and closed the show with his performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test: For One Night Only on BBC4. This Summer, he’s been on the supporting bill for his hero Roger Waters in Hyde Park at British Summer Time and will join “The Titan of Twang” Duane Eddy across UK on his 80th birthday tour in October.
