John Vincent III
After touring in support of his acclaimed, self-released 2019 debut album, Songs From the Valley, John Vincent III was ready for a bit of a break. So when the COVID-19 pandemic struck shortly thereafter, he and his girlfriend packed up their Ford Transit van and just drove … for eight months. Nearly three years later, the 27-year-old Los Angeles/Houston-based singer/songwriter has distilled that once-in-a-lifetime experience into his beautiful and evocative sophomore full-length, Songs for the Canyon.
Co-produced by Vincent with Tom Elmhirst (Adele, David Bowie), and featuring additional production from Tony Berg and Ryan Hadlock, Songs for the Canyon is a massive leap forward from a proudly DIY artist who has already built a diehard fan base on the strength of his heartfelt, stripped-down, folk-tinged sound.
