His sound has been described as ;

The title track from his debut album “Life in Easy Steps” was play listed on radio 2 and was well received by the reviewers back in 2013 and since then he has been on the road playing a mixture of solo and band shows, supporting Paul Carrack on 3 UK tours and also a run of shows with Squeeze. This has helped Vincent again a loyal fan base across the UK.
A turning point for Vincent’s career came when playing at a songwriters event in Liverpool . On the panel was “Whispering” Bob Harris who was impressed with what he heard
“ I am so impressed with Roberts music. Strong songs laced with blues and country he is the real deal”
Following their meeting Robert was invited to record a live session for Radio 2 and Bob Harris chose him as his “emerging artist” at the inaugural UK Americana awards 2016.
Following on from this Robert was invited by the executive director of the Americana Music Association Jed Hilly to play at the Americana Awards showcases festival in Nashville Tennessee.
Here he continued to make an impression and was named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the top 20 acts they saw at the festival under the heading “Best Brit”. Robert has since been Nominated for ‘UK Album of the Year 2018’ by the UK Americana Awards for the 2017 release ‘I’ll Make The Most of My Sins’
“Ebullient Evocative and Entertaining” is how the latest record as been described by Fatea Magazine..

Specialist radio shows such a Bob Harris Country, Ralph McLean on BBC radio Ulster said of Vincent
“A sublime songwriter I think he is an incredible talent”
as well as lots of online radio plays and press in the music blogs
“Robert Vincent is a gifted songwriter making music that will resonate well with the cultured ear”(3 chords and the truth”
“Robert Vincent writes songs you would associate with master craftsmen singer songwriters from the Americas not a young man from Liverpool at the start of his career” Fatea.
