Classic Vance

Similar to his other albums - heartfelt singing, meaningful lyrics. Don't miss it if you're a Vance fan!

Old White Men

I'm new to Vance's music and I think that his songs are wonderful.

Folk music like it should be

I had the pleasure of hearing Vance live for the first time this past week, performing songs off Old White Men and some of his older material. Wow, he brings the whole package. Vance is an excellent guitar player with an expressive voice who writes interesting, original songs.

On Old White Men, Vance is at his best when his singing and acoustic guitar playing are front and center with little else to distract. The first song, Boy on a Train, is a slow song that provides a good example of Vance's expressive voice and storytelling style in his songs. The title track, Old White Men, includes reminiscences from Vance's childhood. He shifts gears with some witty and bawdy humor in "My Bad" which is an excellent selection if you feel you need a laugh.

Vance is versatile, and if you get this album you will hear plenty of folk but some songs that are tinged with elements of other genres which he enjoys. He sets himself apart with his original and authentic song lyrics, making this a good buy.


Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '90s, '00s

One of many self-styled contemporary folk singers to have come on the scene in the 1980s, Vance Gilbert was inspired to begin writing his own material after hearing Shawn Colvin perform at a Boston theater. While Gilbert has become recognized on the folk festival circuit as a songwriter of substance, performance for him is second nature. Gilbert is not a middle-of-the-road folk singer, and his diverse set of influences includes Kenny Rankin, Roberta Flack, Carmen McRae, George Benson and Stevie Wonder....
