As a solo musician Vincent Slegers brings original songs, rooted in the tradition of primitive and primal American music, with a penchant for the darker side of things. with his trusted - and equally rusted - vintage National guitar he´ll pull you in to a world of gloomy soundscapes where hardship and hope go hand in hand.
"Incredibly authentic sounding homegrown blues. Raw, Well-lived and passionate." - Artiest Zoekt Feestneus Jury, Gent.
Recently Vincent got invited to record a track for the upcoming `Missy Sippy Allstars´ album, for which he recorded together with long-time friend and musical colleague Olivier Vander Bauwede (harmonica) and the ever-grooving Bernd Coene (Drums).
The album will be released in Spring 2020, with a special release show on March 6th at the Missy Sippy Blues and Roots Club in Ghent, Belgium.
Hearing `Dark was the Night, Cold was the Ground´ was the starting point of a long and lasting journey, which saw Vincent touring throughout Europe extensively. Music is a power deep within, one that has guided through hardships and sorrows and will inspire others to do the same. With his distinct voice and recogniseable guitar style he is bound to captivate.
In his journey, he has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with names such as Jan Akkerman (NL), Tim Holehouse (UK), Dad Horse Experience (DE), The Redemption´s Colts (Be), Hack Mack Jackson (DE), Gipsy Rufina (IT), Dylan Walshe (IR), Long Line Down (DK), The Freeborn Brothers (PL), Ford Bronco's (DE), The Devil's Trade (HU), Reverend Deadeye (US) ... and playing at various festivals and other cool venues throughout Europe.
