A LITTLE ABOUT VINCENT MINOR:
Vincent Minor will delight and confound you. While his giddy production style suggests a wide-eyed wonderland, his darkly humorous wordsmithery tells some mighty unsavory tales. He casually melts together modern indie pop and classic Tin Pan Alley songcraft like he has the last 100 years of songwriting on speed dial.
Minor’s songs set the toes tapping and the cortex wrinkling simultaneously and then lights the bonfire with colorful, often discordant orchestral arrangements. Unexpected passages of strutting brass, apocalyptic strings and malfunctioning kitchen appliances bring subtlety and life to Minor's stories of danger and heartbreak.
