Album Notes
Vincent Vok has been writing songs since 1968. His influences range from folk and blues artists such as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Robert Johnson and Leonard Cohen. His music ranges from straight blues to thoughtful, lyrically proficient songs that compel the audience to emotionally invest in a specific story or scenario. His style of performing is simple and intimate, challenging and enlightening the audience while entertaining them.

He started out performing in a club called Wobbly Joe’s on the south side of Pittsburgh, Pa., and have since performed in San Francisco, Cleveland, New York and Boston. Most recently performing in clubs and venues that include Kenny’s Castaways, The Bitter End and Gerde’s Folk City in Manhattan.

He has five albums: Survivor, in 1983, which was reviewed by Billboard Magazine and included in their Recommended LP list for the week of 9/04/1983; All the Time, reviewed by David Hinckley of the NY Daily News; Talk is Cheap, released in 1999; Alive and Alone, released in 2002; and most recently, Americans, recorded in 2007 at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY.
"Americans" is a sincere and thoughtful collection of songs that do justice to the folk tradition.
- Ben Johnson, SI Advance

"Vok has been making folk music for years, and not always getting noticed the way he should. Ever Since Johnny Died and Howling of the Moon are particularly powerful tunes, and Vok plays and sings them nicely. "
- David Hinckley, NY Daily News

"A charmingly rustic rocker, reminiscent of everyone’s big brother’s garage band."
- Roman Kozak, Billboard Magazine
(reviewing debut LP Survivor in the Recommended Pop LP’s)

"Vincent Vok continues to play the city circuit, but more importantly, he continues to write good songs. His solo release, All the Time is a well-crafted LP... which has integrity and soul, if not a dozen top 40 hits. All the Time is definitely worth your time."
- Dean Balsamini, SI Advance

"Vok’s indie debut album Survivor leaves no doubt that its creator takes more than an idle interest in words. What you hear is a recreation, a concept that stakes a strong claim in the art of the song and the point of the songwriter who is that song."
- Charles Mitri, The Eagle

"Vok is not just a folk musician. Listening to his unusual style brings thoughts of documented rock geniuses to mind with each lyric and note."
- Mike Hammer, SI Advance

"Vincent T. Vok handles good, soft original folk material... and does create his mood well." - George Kirby, Variety
