Robert & Ethan Johns at Barklee
In May of 2019, we were asked by Ethan Johns to be the live band for a bunch of brilliant students from Berklee College of Music. The results will stay with me for a very long time. Here's a snippet and a glimpse into the process of that 3 days. To work under such sonic genius in a studio as Kevin Killen (Engineer/Producer) and Ethan Johns (Producer/Engineer) in the setting of Real World Studios was a unreal experience.
My Neighbour's Ghost
My Neighbour's Ghost is an upbeat, rhythmic song and the video is charming. The song was produced by the brilliant Ethan Johns, who has worked with the likes of Ray Lamontagne and Laura Marling as well as writing his own material. In recent years, Robert Vincent has established himself as one of the best voices in UK-based Americana and is described as: “…the real deal,” by the BBC Radio 2's legendary Bob Harris.
Taken from the album In This Town You're Owned. Filmed by Matt D. Brady in Henley-on -Thames. Written By Robert Vincent & James House. Performed by Robert Vincent - Guitar Vocals, Anna Corcoran - Piano Vocals, Danny Williams - Bass, Ethan Johns - Mandochello, Accordian, Acoustic Guitar, Robbie Taylor - Mandolin, Jim Kimberley - Drums, Adrian Gautrey - Keys.
After receiving the inaugural Emerging Artist Award from ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris in 2016, who described Vincent as “absolutely magnetic”, Robert was then invited onto BBC4’s ‘Old Grey Whistle Test: For One Night Only’. That performance marked a real breakthrough, establishing him as one of the UK’s leading lights in Americana and propelling him to #1 in the iTunes Country chart.
If Not For You with Ethan Johns and The Black Eyed Dogs
I was lucky enough to join my friends Ethan Johns & The Black Eyed Dogs in Real World Studios earlier this year for the recording of their new live album "Revelator". Here is a video of the Bob Dylan, George Harrison song 'If Not For You'.
