Let’s say a scientist were to be able to clone and merge people into a new human being. And let’s say that said scientist were to do such a thing with Tom Waits with a bit of Boby Dylan, Tom Petty, and Leonard Cohen sprinkled in with good measure and pop it in the oven, out would pop Vincent Poag.

Take a blender. Load it up with Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Tom Waits, Dave Cousins, Leonard Cohen, and Kim Carnes (I kid you not). Hit frappe. That was running through my mind as I listened to Vincent Poag.

CD Review: Vincent Poag - Heroes And Demons

Blinded By Sound

For his third album, Heroes And Demons, singer-songwriter Vincent Poag continues where he left off on 2014's excellent For The Girls. Not one to be tied to any particular style, Poag mixes pop with touches of rock, blues, jazz and county to great effect. Poag's gritty voice at times recalls Mark Knopfler or Tom Waits, but is never derivative. The weariness of his vocals give his lyrics, which often find him ruminating about everyday life, an everyman feel and give weight to the tracks.

Poag’s unassuming vocals belie the gravitas of the album’s title, suggesting a casual cross between Randy Newman, TomWaits and Bob Dylan.
