The Golden Crystal Kingdom is the new album from Texas troubadour and singer-songwriter Vincent Neil Emerson. This 12 track collection is produced by Shooter Jennings, and expands the artist’s repertoire into the storied influence of electrified folk legends like Leon Russell and Link Wray.
His first two LPs, Fried Chicken & Evil Woman and Vincent Neil Emerson, from 2019 and 2021 respectively, established him as a refreshing voice in the alt-country landscape. He became an in-demand name, touring across the country, whispered about as an inheritor of his icons like Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Steve Earle.
On The Golden Crystal Kingdom, Emerson retains his diamond sharp storytelling while imbuing the work with a freewheeling rock aesthetic, creating an album as fun as his live shows and as cathartic as his early work.
