Ezra Vancil (Solo)

Ezra Vancil is an American singer/songwriter based in Dallas, Texas. While in the past he has written and recorded in the rock, pop, and experimental genres, a more mature Vancil has now found a sense of permanent belonging and connection within the community of Americana artists. His life experiences shared in song can be serious and contemplative - touching on themes of addiction, depression, and divorce - but Vancil chronicles his escape from darkness with expressions of hope and love of life that are both inspiring and healing.

"a masterpiece of emotions, with each song woven into just the right spot to where it spins a story; and this is one of those once in a lifetime records. One of such an extreme caliber that most bands/artists could only dream of releasing something like this. -the music enthusiast" (Praise For Promise Land Ezra/Thomas)

The new album from Ezra Vancil is titled 'You,' due out in 2018 and recorded at Congress House Studio in Austin Tx. This new material takes Ezra in a new exciting direction. His youthful roots in folk and Americana music shine through, masterfully blended with his love of the unexpected. His rugged edgy vocals and haunting melodies seem both instantly familiar and brand new.

Ezra wrestles with life in his music. He has overcome many great life tragedies hopes to leave each audience with a sense of hope. Though the themes of his songs can be, at times, of the hard things of life, his performance are uplifting and many times healing to those that listen.

Ezra loves home concerts, so if your interested in hosting a intimate night with either Ezra solo, or duet, he's always glad to work something out that suits everyone involved. Home concerts with Leslie Wills joining Ezra, are also available, though the scheduling would need to be well in advance.

My husband and I hosted a house concert with Ezra and my expectations were met and beyond. It was a very intimate, comfortable setting. Not only did we listen to his amazing music but got to hear his inspirations behind each song. I highly recommend this experience!
