Since his debut album ‘Life in Easy Steps’ in 2013, Robert Vincent from Liverpool has been one of the most acclaimed new voices in Americana, Country and Folk.
Having received the inaugural Emerging Artist Award from ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris in 2016 – who described Vincent as “absolutely magnetic”, Robert was then invited onto BBC4’s ‘Old Grey Whistle Test: For One Night Only’. That performance marked a real breakthrough for Vincent, establishing him as one of the UK’s leading lights in Americana and propelling him to #1 in the iTunes Country chart.
On Robert's latest offering ‘In This Town You’re Owned’, he returns with his most relevant album to date, produced by Brit Award winning Ethan Johns – who has won acclaim for his production work with, amongst others, Paul McCartney, Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling, Kings of Leon, The Boxer Rebellion, The Staves, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Tom Jones. What a great result for Robert and Ethan Johns scooping Album of the Year. Overall fantastic achievements for Robert. What an unbelievable climb it's been after so many years of writing and recording.
Robert has performed extensively across the UK, Europe and the USA alongside such classic artists as Elvis Costello, Robert Plant, James Blunt, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Paul Carrack. Exciting times ahead as plans are now well under way for Robert's next album and tour. This gig will feature previews of tracks from that album.
Robert’s special guest on the evening will be Kenny Foster. Hailing from Joplin, Missouri, but now based in Nashville, Kenny was named one of the "Top 10 New Artists You Need to Know" by Rolling Stone and has featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Forbes and, recently, in Maverick here in the UK. Kenny has performed worldwide with artists including Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Brothers Osborne, Old Dominion, Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Butch Walker, Lady A and countless others, as well as being a go-to songwriter in Nashville. His albums, Deep Cuts and Somewhere In Middle America, have earned him a dedicated following both in the US and internationally. Kenny won the International Single of the Year at the British Country Music Association’s 2022 Awards for his ‘Copy Paste Repeat’ "
