A torchbearer of the Texas songwriter tradition, Vincent Neil Emerson will headline the Top Hat in Missoula on October 18, 2023.
Hailing from the Lone Star State, Vincent Neil Emerson crafts melodies and lyrics that transport you to the soul of Americana music. He draws comparisons to esteemed artists such as Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Steve Earle, while also carving out a distinct musical identity of his own.
Listen to some of his standout tracks “Road Runner,” “25 & Wastin’ Time,” and “Manhattan Island Serenade” and you’ll hear a touch of nostalgic familiarity mixed with a fresh, innovative sound.
If you caught Charley Crockett in Montana last year, you might’ve witnessed Vincent’s mesmerizing opening sets. Now, by popular demand, he’s back for his own headlining show!
“If he grows on the public the way he’s grown on me, it’s possible young Vincent will plant the flag of his [songwriting] forebears firmly in the consciousness of a whole new generation.” – Rodney Crowell
