Vincent John, the current guitarist and major songwriting contributor for Lee Fields & The Expressions, is putting out a series of singles throughout the year. The first of which is set to drop out tomorrow.
Vincent is an old-soul, with a love of coffee and vintage design. He brings his appreciation of old-school quality craftsmanship to new-age tones and methods to his solo project. In addition, he has written songs for legends such as Lady Wray & Aaradhna and toured the world with Lee Fields & The Expressions.
Here is his explaining the song in his own words:
“Everyone, at some point in their life, feels the impulse to escape. Driving in the middle of the night represents the way we search for answers even when we don’t necessarily know the questions. We hope the road gives us some peace, some new insight, but we also know we have to return home eventually and face the real world. The song is about driving 100 mph, but not being any closer to outrunning your problems than when you were standing still in the garage before your journey even began.”
