Acclaimed singer-songwriter John Vincent III delivers his long-awaited second album ‘Songs For The Canyon’, a deeply personal artistic statement from the rising US artist.
The latest single from ‘Songs For The Canyon’ is ‘Bluebird Singing’.
John has followed-up his 2019 breakthrough debut album ‘Songs From The Valley’ with a heartfelt chronicle of the nearly year-long journey he and his partner embarked upon at the start of the pandemic.
Fighting disillusionment and questioning his musical ambition, John and his partner loaded their lives into a van and set off on an eight-month voyage through America, visiting over a dozen states.
John continued his practice of writing songs every day while on the road, helping him reconnect with his craft and love of making music. When he returned to Los Angeles, he was ready to make another album.
“It’s difficult to put into words what ‘Songs For The Canyon’ is, as it’s simply who I was for close to three years,” John reflects.
“Looking back, it’s almost strange to remember a time without this thing that my nearly every thought revolved around, which is something I have never felt before regarding a musical project.”
“I suppose ‘SFTC’ is a self-exploration and acceptance of what I found, a representation of my life as it was. Making this album turned out to be far more difficult than I had ever anticipated, but I’ve grown so thankful for all that I’ve learned in the process. In the canyon, much like our lives, there is sunlight and rain. I hope there is a song here for whatever your day may bring.”
‘Songs For The Canyon’ was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York, with sessions led by John’s co-executive producer Tom Elmhirst (Adele, David Bowie), and additional production from Tony Berg (boygenius, Phoebe Bridgers, Taylor Swift), Ryan Hadlock (Zach Bryan, Brandi Carlile, Lumineers) and Jonathan Gilbert (Mt. Joy, Pete Yorn).
‘Songs For The Canyon’ is out now.
‘Become What You Are’, the new album from The Daisycutters is available now via MADCAP Global Music, JB Hi-Fi and independent music retailers.
