ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A native Corkonian, Vincent’s association with music goes back to his early teens. At 14 his father gave him a present of a new acoustic guitar and it was the start of a passion that would last a life-time.
As soon as he started to take lessons his keen musical ear fell for Thin Lizzy and Gary Moore. “It was the guitar playing more than anything else that interested me,” says Vincent.
In his later teens he turned his attention to music theory, deepening his understanding and love for music. By now he was playing Jazz and Classical pieces. He completed several examinations through the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music and Trinity College Dublin.
His early outings as a performing artist were mainly solo gigs in the city and county of Cork. At that time the music he played was main stream pop-classics. But he yearned for other things.
In the early nineties Vincent teamed up with the Tony Stevens Showband. His audience base had now spread across Ireland, Northern Ireland and the surrounding districts of London.
In London the Irish clubs were still big business. Clubs like The Galtee More, The Hibernian, Chelsea and The Gresham on the Holloway Road were regular gigs in his calendar. Vincent was the band’s main exponent of rhythm and lead guitar as well as backing vocals.
Vincent was playing up to five nights a week on both sides of the Irish Sea. He was on the crest of a wave in his career when a Christmastime near-fatal road accident brought his career to an abrupt halt.
Within eighteen months he was back at the microphone. He secured a scholarship to attend the Leeds College of Music and earned his dip. Music Theory & practice. While there he completed his thesis on that legendary exponent of jazz guitar, Django Reinhardt. Since returning to Cork Vincent divides his time between playing and teaching music.
“The title track of the E.P., It’s Probably Me is as rich lyrically as it is musically,” says Vincent. It’s a song that reaches the darker side of a soul too and that can be a bit scary.
“I Got The Music In Me” is a fun, upbeat song. An old pop-classic that I recently uncovered. The reaction to it has been amazing, even among the younger part of my audience, many of whom had not heard the song before.
“The Story Of The Blues,” is perhaps, Vincents true anthem, as a singer, as a guitarist and as a man. “This song is my touchstone,” says Vincent enthusiastically. This is the song that’s different every time. Sometimes I play it, other times it plays me.
The chosen tracks for the new E.P. are in some ways, a culmination of a career that has spanned four decades. A career that started with rock and blues and diverts at times to jazz, classical, Irish and pop but always, always returns to it’s roots. The story of the blues.

Impressive EP Spanning Many Genres
Vincent Lynch's "It's Probably Me" is an EP that features Vincent’s excellent musical talents, across multiple genres, from blues to pop. There is quite a lot of variation present on this 4-track EP: It starts with a remake of “I Got the Music in Me” with a jazz-influenced piano progression dubbed with an electronica/dance sound. Next, the EP moves to a bluesy electric guitar riff fused with a solid brass section on track 2. Then, Vincent presents a simple, clean acoustic sound on track 3. And finally the EP closes out with a dance club remix version of “I Got the Music in Me.” Lynch's vocals are quite similar to the blues-oriented vocals of Eric Clapton. The lyrics of the 2 original tracks are strong. The bluesy, heartbreaking "Story of the Blues" displays Lynch's lyrical prowess when he sings, "Everybody knows what the blues is all about." More aesthetically pleasing is the simple, acoustic title track, which shows Lynch at his lyrical and musical best. "It's Probably Me" is a beautiful acoustic number with a tidal wave of mood setting sounds. No matter the sound, light and acoustic or loud and electronic, the EP displays Lynch’s musical talents. If you have eclectic musical tastes and enjoy hearing a new talented artist, give this EP a try.
