Title - 'Heroes and Demons'
Artist - Vincent Poag
Veteran singer-songwriter Vincent Poag has just released his next creatively genius full-length studio album, entitled Heroes and Demons via Danal Music, LLC.
The ten track album is Poag’s third studio recording - Circling Back (2011), For The Girls (2014) - and, in much the same vein as all of those, Poag once again draws lyrical inspiration from everyday occurrences and thought-provoking subjects.
1. 'Beautiful Day'
2. 'You Love Me'
3. 'One Step Ahead Of Gloom'
4. 'Piper Play'
5. 'Here I Am' (w/ Diana Hope)
6. 'Young Again'
7. 'Too Much Of Nothin’ To Do'
8. 'Sir Nicholas Winton'
10. 'And The Ocean Rolls'
This quite beautiful new album begins with the infectiously gentle bounce of 'Beautiful Day' and backs that up seamlessly with both the personal storytelling of 'You Love Me' and then the name-dropping, dream-recalling 'One Step Ahead of Gloom.'
The playful, Renaissance-esque 'Piper Play' is up next and is followed by the piano-led ballad 'Here I Am.' Featuring Diana Hope on vocals, it's out of nowhere here, as a "Poag track," but is as beautiful a cut as there ever was.
That's backed by the jangly guitar work of 'Young Again,' before the pace is brought down somewhat for some more delightful storytelling within 'Too Much Of Nothin' To Do' ("... fine is the line between living and dying").
Old time radio comes to the fore with the playful, aristocratically-defined 'Sir Nicholas Winton,' and that is backed by the delightful ode to 'Daisy,' with the album coming to a close with the war-infused trooper recollection of 'And The Ocean Rolls.
