||Vincent Cross is a roots-oriented songwriter, musician, and composer born in Dublin, raised in Australia and now based in New York City. His first full-length debut album Home Away from Home received strong support from the Bluegrass, Country and Americana communities. In concert he accompanies himself on guitar and often features a traditional string band. His vocal influences range from the “untamed” Rosco Holcomb to the subtler alt-country musing of Jeff Tweedy.
Vincent’s new album A Town Called Normal, journeys through jazz infused old-time ballads, downhome country blues, traditional bluegrass, and indie-folk rock. Three different band configurations add to the musical diversity of this recording. Respected traditional players accompany Vincent on ‘Childish Things’ and ‘Cursed’ while there is a free jazz feel to ‘Footnotes’ and ‘Cuckoo.’ The third band unit adds a heavy dose of drums and mandolin to ‘Sometimes’ adding an indie-folk flavor.
