ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

Review from New York Music Daily...

"Purist, Rustic Americana From Vincent Cross"
"His previous album Home Away from Home was a pretty straight-up, purist bluegrass collection; his new one A Town Called Normal is a lot more eclectic, a mix of rustic acoustic Americana with a bit of folk-rock and traditional sounds from across the pond..."
