Liverpudlian singer/ songwriter Robert Vincent is here with the video for his touching new single 'The Passage' set for release on April 15th 2013 through DB Industries and taken from his recently released debut album 'Life In Easy Steps'.
The video features the bespectacled artist playing his acoustic guitar and singing alone at a bandstand, by a window at home and on stage. We also see him travelling in his car, eating by himself at an eatery and signing autographs backstage at one of his gigs among other everyday things for Vincent. It serves to demonstrate the song lyrics which explore the notion of making memories; it's an upbeat number with a distinctive country vibe about it though with a very pop vocal accompaniment. Vincent has explained that he's now starting to view much of his past in a positive light, including things that he would rather forget. 'It has been easy to forget certain parts of my past because I think they have been harmful, but then I realise that those very memories have taught me too', he says. 'It's easy to hang onto them in a bad way and inflict those things onto others.'
He has also explained that his album was very much based on his own life, were it to have had 'easy steps'. He continues to tour and promote his album throughout 2013, with dates in the UK spanning up 'til May.
