In 2008, as a birthday gift, his wife bought him a series of guitar lessons. Now Poag could revisit his first love, music. Somewhere between hope and possibility in a voice somewhere between Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, and Randy Newman, Vincent Poag was reborn.
“This Christmas” was Vincent Poag’s first single off his debut CD Circling Back. Peaking at #34 on the FMQB/ACQB Chart, this is a holiday song that is both timely and timeless. The next single “Stress,” with its rhythmic Island sound, hit #5 on the FMQB/ACQB chart, alongside artists like One Republic, Adele, and Coldplay.
His sophomore album, For The Girls, was released in April 2014. “For The Girls,” which, as Poag states, “represents man’s inept struggle with the opposite sex,” “Scarlett & Me,” the first single which he wrote “in a lighthearted complimentary spirit with the hope of cracking of smile,” and the Bourbon Street flair of “New Orleans” are just a few of the standout songs in Poag’s impressive catalog.
