John Vincent III Unveils Musical Odyssey With New Album, ‘Songs For The Canyon’

Emerging with heartfelt resonance, singer-songwriter John Vincent III has just unveiled his highly anticipated sophomore album, Songs for the Canyon. This introspective collection serves as a profound artistic testament, chronicling the poignant year-long odyssey that unfolded as he and his partner navigated the uncharted territories of the global pandemic.

Each track encapsulates the emotional nuances and introspective moments experienced during this transformative journey, making Songs for the Canyon an intimately crafted musical narrative that transcends the boundaries of time and circumstance.

Guiding the recording sessions with an expert hand, co-executive producer Tom Elmhirst (known for his work with Adele and David Bowie) played a pivotal role in shaping the album’s sonic landscape. Adding layers of depth and texture, ‘Songs for the Canyon’ also boasts additional production contributions from the accomplished Tony Berg (notable for his collaborations with boygenius, Phoebe Bridgers, and Taylor Swift), Ryan Hadlock (recognised for his work with Zach Bryan, Brandi Carlile, and Lumineers), and Jonathan Gilbert (whose production credits include Mt. Joy and Pete Yorn). This collaborative effort enriches the musical tapestry, elevating the album to new heights of creative expression.

“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,” he 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.”  – JOHN VINCENT III.

Songs for the Canyon is a testament to John Vincent III’s musical prowess, enriched by the collaborative alchemy of acclaimed producers. This sophomore masterpiece encapsulates a transformative journey, inviting listeners to immerse themselves in its emotive melodies and reflective narratives. It’s available now everywhere.
