An incredible producer from Canada, Vincent was first discovered shortly after posting his remix of Alison Wonderland's "U Don't Know," which found itself on her Run (Deluxe Edition) remix album. Growing up in Winnipeg, Vincent began learning how to play the piano when he was just four years old and he eventually became interested in digital music production, which catapulted his promising career in the electronic world. Fast forward to 2019... Vincent is now unveiling his phenomenal debut EP, For You.

For You reveals an emotional side to Vincent that we've never gotten to experience in any of his existing discography. An electrifying collaboration with Yetep, the opening track "Same Page" features Brooke Daye's enchanting vocals alongside Vincent's exhilarating electronic stylings. Heavily inspired by authentic experiences and honest emotions, For You examines Vincent's enthralling journey through life as he experiments with vulnerability in his songwriting process, as we can see in "Here For You" and "I'm No Magician."  

One of Vincent's most notable songs from 2018, "Breathe 2.0" explores passionate love that truly gets your heart racing with its frenetic buildup. The impressive EP closes with a heartfelt tune Vincent wrote with Pauline Herr called "Can't Help Myself," which suggests that sometimes we really can't avoid catching feelings for someone special. For You definitely showcases Vincent's strong ability to shift from perfecting invigorating electronics to focusing more on unguarded lyricism throughout the EP.

On For You, Vincent exclusively shared with Ones To Watch:

"The goal for this EP was to create something deeper than a simple collection of songs–an intimate record with meaning and depth, told through melody and lyrics cohesively. The majority of the vocalists and I wrote our feelings into stories together in my apartment. We shared similar experiences that weighed on our hearts so it was easy to write from occurrences we've both lived through rather than create situations we've never experienced. I believe these moments are the backbone of this record–situations shared between people with one side hiding their emotions. The music tells the side of the story of those who might be too timid to vocalize their emotions to another person. My hope is that anyone listening to the record may connect to any of the emotions shared throughout. Maybe someone will resonate with the stories or feel like they're living in a parallel situation, and use this as a method to tell the other person how they feel."
