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. 

In 2013 Robert Vincent released his debut album Life in Easy Steps. Critically well received, the title track was play-listed by Radio 2. 

After meeting Whispering Bob Harris at an event called ‘Bluebird at the Bluecoat’ that brought the concept of the bluebird cafe in Nashville to The Bluecoat Chambers in Liverpool, the legendary radio presenter invited Robert to perform a live session on his Radio 2 show and in 2016 awarded him with his ‘Emerging Artist’ of the year award at the inaugural UK Americana Awards show in Hackney London.

Harris described Vincent as “absolutely magnetic” and “the real deal”.

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. 

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. 

‘In This Town You’re Owned’ has also picked up Americana Music Association UK Album & Artist of The Year 2021, plus Americana UK Album & Artist of the Year 2020.
