Vincent Poag For The Girls Review

Music Street Journal, August 14, 2014

Folk music is the general concept here. Within that category, though, there is quite a bit of range. And, this does move outside the “folk” box at times, too. This is an entertaining album with a fairly wide appeal.

Listen to a Song Written Entirely About Scarlett Johansson

METROLYRICS, June 18th, 2014

Saying Vincent Poag is a Scarlett Johansson fan might not be doing him justice. The folk singer-songwriter just released his new song "Scarlett & Me," and it's all about an imaginary day spent with the Hollywood starlet after a chance encounter in the streets of New York. The story begins with Vincent walking down Fifth Ave. and bumping right into Scarlett, who just happened to be looking down at her phone texting. (SMH, Scar-Jo.)

Vincent Poag: For The Girls

Jazz Weekly, May 5, 2014

Decades ago singer/songwriters like Vincent Poag were as ubiquitous as Foto Mats (how’s THAT for dating yourself?) but in this day of specialization, are now as rare as camera film. He’s got a voice and style that gives hints of a folksy Billy Joel, John Renbourn, Leo Sayer and even a dash of early Cat Stevens here in music that touches on American folk, blues, jazz and the Crescent City.

Poag's "For The Girls" Is An Album For the People

Phil's Picks, April 30, 2014

The sheer musical and lyrical depth of the album’s thirteen total songs one of the most extensive albums released so far this year. Poag doesn’t stick to just one style of song from one track to the next on this record. Every track is different from the one before. And this should come as no surprise considering Poag’s influences. Those influences range from names such as Bob Dylan and The Beatles to even George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Rogers and Hammerstein.

CD Review: Vincent Poag: For The Girls: Singer/songwriter returns with a strong second album.

Blinded By Sound, April 9, 2014

Singer/songwriter Vincent Poag has been compared to Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler – lofty praise to be sure -- and while his music and voice bear similarities to both, especially the latter, he's different enough that he has forged his own unique path.

Vincent Poag - Circling Back (2011)

Something Else, August 8, 2012

He sings something like Bob Dylan, plays guitar something like Mark Knopfler, but doesn’t fall into easy mimicry of either. Credit a long journey to get here, as Vincent Poag took some time away from his dream of becoming a singer-songwriter for the straight life and starting a family.

Vincent Poag Circling Back

Music Street Journal, October 2011

This is an interesting album that never gets repetitive or boring. Poag changes it up enough from song to song to make it work every time…This [Confidence Thrill] is a dramatic and powerful tune. The arrangement includes some strings to add to the power and emotion of the cut… It’s [Stress] kind of like Bob Dylan singing with Buffett’s band.

Album Review: Vincent Poag, Circling Back

Examiner.com, September 21, 2011

"This Christmas" is so strong that it should be the theme song of a blockbuster Christmas movie this year - and if it had been written by Randy Newman it would probably be in line for an Academy Award… It may be Poag's first album, but Circling Back makes a strong case for the notion that maybe it should be mandatory for all musicians to go out and experience another slice of life before coming back to observe it in song. It's a strong, self-assured debut that displays an enormous grasp of the craft and history of songwriting that is well outside the range of most singer/songwriters, equally informed by rock, folk, jazz, standards and maybe even a bit of country. Poag is a musical Everyman, inhabiting each song and imbuing each one with just enough of a different slant to keep the album fresh, but with enough of a producer's sense to tie all of the songs together in one consistent collection.

Vincent Poag - Circling Back (2011)

All About Jazz, August 9, 2011

“I'll Be Seeing You Soon," this album's most overt rocker, seems to find Poag spent from the effort, as he laments the “bullsh-t flyin' everywhere."… Just when Poag threatens to get too far down one of existence's dimly lit alleys, he'll pause for a boozy celebration of life like “Little One," aware as always of the dangers—but certain, even now it seems, that things can work out: “Persevere with a dream," Poag sings, “for a dream to come through." This album is as good a proof as any that they do just that.

Vincent Poag, Circling Back

Jazz Weekly, August 2011

I thought this kind of stuff when out with the 8 track-a singer songwriter! Vincent Poag has a voice that’s sort of a mix between early Bob Dylan and Jim Croce; gravelly and smoky, but musical enough to keep your attention. He’s also got a gift with the pen that mixes the sardonic humor of a Randy Newman with the vulnerability of a Cat Stevens.

Vincent Poag Self-Releases Debut Album Circling Back – Out Now

New York, NY (July 19, 2011)

Singer/songwriter Vincent Poag has released his debut collection of songs,Circling Back (Danal Music). It’s an apt title as it hearkens back to this native New Yorker’s days as an underground Atlanta singer/songwriter. Poag, in fact, has had many lives. John Lennon, one of his heroes, wrote that life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans. So it has been for Poag. Immersing his creative talents in the business world spending years carving out a highly successful career, his musical dreams lay dormant and his songs unheard. Until now.
