To those not paying attention, it might seem that PHIL VINCENT is in 17 bands, but the reality is it is only 5. And his solo career!
 
So yes, he's a busy lad and sometimes it might be valid to quote the quality over quantity cliche, but as long as he's delivering records like Cranston II, I don't think you could fairly use that.
 
CRANSTON is singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Phil Vincent, AOR God Paul Sabu and D’Ercole drummer B.F. D’Ercole. So Phil isn't reaching far outside his musical circle for collaborators, nor is he delivering anything we haven't heard before - crunchy melodic hard rock with a slight pomp touch and those unmistakable Kip Winger styled vocals.
 
But the genuine warmth in which I hold Phil is testament to the material he delivers. Ok, so the production might not quite be there, but there's always a few songs from each album you treasure and there aren't too many fillers on offer. And he's a very fine guitarist too.

If American melodic hard rock with a pomp touch and a heavy Winger influence is your thing, then look no further.
