“Riot’s Cry” is the first single from Liverpudlian singer-songwriter Robert
Vincent. Released October 7th, it follows the release of his two EPs “The
Bomb” and “My Pill”.
Robert explains the story behind the song – “Riot’s Cry is based on our fears
and our belief systems. Some people may hide behind religion or technology
and social networks in turn making themselves feel stronger but ultimately it’s
about finding your own riot’s cry – your own inner strength without always
having turn to another belief system that can sometimes give us a false sense
of reality and security”.
Having grown up in Crosby, North Liverpool, Robert has always immersed
himself in an eclectic mix of folk, rock and country music. Raiding his family’s
record collections he found gems from Van Morrison, The Beatles, Pink
Floyd, and Johnny Cash which have so greatly influenced and informed his
own style of music along with such contemporaries as Ryan Adams, Ray
LaMontagne and David Gray.
“Life In Easy Steps”, Robert’s debut album will be released early 2013 and is
an open door to his inner workings, filled with songs that tell the story of his
life. Having had to deal with becoming a father at a young age and therefore
putting music, his passion and dream to one side, he took jobs to provide for
his family. Then, like anyone learning their trade, he worked at his art and
after numerous set ups and local bands who split just as things seemed
about to happen, he found his riot’s cry and completed his debut solo album.
Robert is finally getting his music out to a wider audience and early support
has already come from Radio 2′s Janice Long as well as numerous regional
sessions and Robert is now embarking on an extensive UK tour to promote
his upcoming single, “Riot’s Cry”.
Single Riot’s Cry will be released October 7th on DB Industries
