It's hard to reconcile that Mark Vincent, the strikingly handsome young man on the cover of his third CD is still in his teens. See his jet black styled hair, admire his confident swagger, take in his mature conduct and impeccable manners and you're kind of stumped, in a good way. And then you hear him sing. And the power, resonance and timbre move you in a way you don't quite expect. And still you find it hard to compute that voice could emanate from someone so young. That is the package which continues to surprise with Mark Vincent.
