Singer-songwriter VINCINT, born Vincint Cannady, headlined Union Stage in DC recently on The Getaway Tour, and Katherine Gaines was there to photograph the show!
VINCINT’s tour followed the 2021 release of his debut full-length album, There Will Be Tears, which spawned five singles including “Getaway.”

On May 12 at Union Stage, VINCINT celebrated the breakthrough success of his internationally acclaimed debut album, There Will Be Tears, available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. The album exploded onto the Top 10 of iTunes’ “US Pop Albums” chart within 48 hours of its release earlier this year, fueled by more than 2M overall streams on its advance tracks.
An emotional rollercoaster through the artist’s psyche, THERE WILL BE TEARS emerged from a period of deep personal soul searching during the tense and tumultuous summer of 2020. The cathartic, triumphant new collection sees VINCINT joined by a star-studded array of special guest collaborators, including Alex Newell, Qveen Herby, Parson James, and Tegan & Sara, the latter of whom contribute glittering harmonies to the album highlight, “Getaway.”

VINCINT’s dynamic songcraft and radiant charisma has seen him lighting up stages around the globe, including headlining performances at Pride events nationwide, multiple sold-out shows in New York City and Los Angeles, an appearance at the 2020 Academy Awards (as member of Cynthia Erivo’s gospel choir), and memorable sets at the United States Conference on AIDS, SXSW, 2018’s LOVELOUD Festival, the 2019 GAY TIMES Honours 500 in London, NETFLIX Pride 2020, and NYC’s Governors Ball Music Festival 2021, to name but a few.
