Man there’s some musical talent on the peninsula and Young Vincent is no exception.

This trio of 22-year-old peninsula locals have been doing shows around Melbourne since 2014 and have recently launched their fourth single ‘Run’ (written by Josh Walton) on iTunes. I’m chatting with them via mobile phone – they are in Sydney – and in between the reverb/echo, missed conversation and chuckling, come voices filled with excitement, harmony and gratitude.  You can tell Tom Simpson and Ryan fellows (Josh Walton is absent) have known each other for a while and enjoy what they are doing (Tom and Ryan met each other at Woodleigh in Moorooduc and Josh went to Flinders College in Tyabb).

“I suppose you’d call us an Indie or alternative folk band. We launched two singles ‘A Fairy Tale’ and ‘Grow’ in 2014 and ‘Days’ in 2015 which sold out at the launch. We’ve always played music and work out of a studio/shed in Mt Martha. It’s all very local and relaxed. The best part is we get to do it with our mates”, says Tom.

Harmony is where it’s at with this talented band. Their songs are full of melody and music created with voice and instrument, plus their lyrics make real sense and tell stories of love and life. ‘Run’ is heading in a slightly different direction for this three-piece ensemble and is produced by Colin Leadbetter at Sing Sing Music Production and of Whitley and Katie Noonan fame.

“Touring in 2015 with Woodlock was so much fun and having our single ‘Days’ sell out was amazing. Our up-coming tour around Australia is going to be epic” continues Ryan. ‘Run’ is being launched in Melbourne at The Toff in Town on August 27 with special guests Neighbour and Jack the Fox and is shaping up to be an event not to be missed for anyone who loves music from the likes of Fleet Fox, The Paper Kites or Angus Stone.

The guys in Young Vincent originally got together with the hope of raising some cash for the homeless in Frankston and have developed into a band of substance and ability. With airplay on RRR, JJJ Unearthed and others, the peninsula alternative folk scene is well represented – or shall I say – it’s where it’s at.
