“Saint & Sinner” Album by Vince Costa
And hope, keeps us alive
Turning our world, when we could die
And hope, holds everything
Like grace from above
Making us sing
La la la lai la…
These are the ending lyrics from the awesomely written lovely song “Paper & Pen”, one could easily relate to it. Hope keeps us alive 😀 from the super fab album “Saint & Sinner” by Vince Costa.
Vince? Who? What? Yes, these are gonna be the anticipated questions. So let me shed some light on it 🙂 . Like me being superbly thrilled to know and letting you all too, have some of the little details.
Vince Costa, hailing from a musically rich village of Curtorim, Goa, has come up with his first album ‘Saint & Sinner’ comprising of 10 songs. After a gap from the music scenario as a DJ and then an audio engineer, he’s back and this time as a songwriter/singer. Costa has been influenced by traditional American country music, folk, blues and our very Goan music. With the album comprising of pleasing, mid-tempo and ballad songs. Each and every song having originality and utter uniqueness, so soothing to one’s ear that it trickles down your deepest and hidden parts of your soul. Oh man, you’ve nailed it!!!
Vince is backed by some of the very talented musicians of Goa which consists of The Saints: Joe Pereira, Ignatious Rodrigues, Grayston Vaz, Marwin Da Costa creating the perfect blend. Along with the Brass Section (Semy Braganza, Roy Menezes, Dexter Furtado), the String Section (Victor Da Costa, Selwin Menezes, Shernol Mendonca, Vasco Dias) and Sancho Menezes. And the men behind the scenes: Dean Picardo (Recording Engineer), Jim Demaine (Mastering Engineer), Duane Lundy (Mix Engineer).
And this is how it looks, where all the genius music heads comes together under one roof. Vince Costa turned his store room, making way to the magical studio to record the oh so soulful music.
