Join us for free live music by Vincent Neil Emerson!
Vincent Neil Emerson, a 25-year old singer/songwriter born and raised in East Texas, has been making an impression on the DFW music scene since his first album “East Texas Blues” was released late July of 2015.
After leaving home at 16 and spending the rest of his formative years on the move, Emerson found his place in the local music scene in Fort Worth, bringing his take on swing time country and early rock & roll / rhythm & blues to the dive bars and honky tonks around town.
Although Emerson started out as a local act in Fort Worth, his music has garnered attention from critics and fellow musicians across Texas.
“Emerson, another Panther City Artist, released East Texas Blues earlier this year and, simply put, it’s a stunner from beginning to end. Carrying a strong retro vibe that’s authentic and fresh, not kitschy, tunes such as “Hesitation Blues” seem like the work of a man twice his age.
Emerson mixes jumping juke-joint numbers with noir sounds and a sincere folk sensibility to make an album that will have anyone listening hit the “repeat” button, well, repeatedly.” – The Dallas Observer.
Vincent has been working as a professional gigging musician for the past 4 years, opening up for acts such as Billy Joe Shaver, Shooter Jennings, 1100 Springs, Nick Waterhouse, J.D. McPherson, Justin Townes Earle, Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P. Nunn, and Asleep At The Wheel.
Emerson is currently working with Niles City Sound in Fort Worth on his Sophomore album.
