Vincent Neil Emerson has been playing in the Honky Tonks and bars of Fort Worth since he was 20 years old. Born in the pines of East Texas, Emerson was raised in Van Zandt County, by a part Native American single mother, of the Choctaw-Apache tribe of Ebarb, in Northern Louisiana. He left home at 16, and traveled his home state, picking up odd jobs along the way. Eventually he picked up a guitar at 18 and started writing songs, unexpectedly making a career for himself as a gigging musician and a songwriter. His musical influences range from the Texas Folk of Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, and Guy Clark, to the Classic Honky Tonk and blues songs of Webb Pierce, Ray Price, and Hank Williams. With deep respect for both genres, Vincent blends these two musical styles into a repertoire of original material that can make you laugh, cry, and dance all in the same song.
