Reminiscent of the pop rock from back in the 80s/90s such as Hall & Oates, The Cars, New Order & Pet Shop Boys and filled with catchy guitar hooks, smooth but subtle synths and melodic vocals that match the dreamy vibe – “This Great Vibration” sets pretty much the tone of Vincent John’s new album. Take an exclusive first look at the single below and let yourself drive by the charming force of this amazing artist.
Philadelphia born-and-raised artist & producer, Vincent John will release his debut EP Never Go Back on October 28th. The EP will be released as a limited edition cassette via Philadelphia-based Know Hope Records, with b-side of the tape featuring instrumentals of the songs on the EP. The EP will also be available digitally via iTunes. Vincent John has an
EP release show planned for November 1 at Pianos in New York City and will be performing on November 2 in Philadelphia at Boot & Saddle with Royal Canoe.
On Never Go Back, Vincent John showcases unique and beautiful works in the vein of classic pop with his own production reminiscent of golden 1980s AM radio, as echoes of American R&B ring throughout. Honest looks at longing, loss, drugs and darkness juxtapose sweet arrangements with soulful hooks and driving beats.
Known for his work with soul artists Aaradhna (Universal), Lee Fields, Nicole Wray (Truth & Soul) and more, Vincent John’s keen sense of songwriting and arrangements have provided the backdrop for some of today’s modern soul classics.
Never Go Back is influenced by timeless pop and new wave artists, Vincent John’s debut EP is a one-two punch of modern electro pop perfection.
