Vassar puts out new single

Tuesday, February 3, 2009 – Phil Vassar released the title track of his current album, "Prayer Of A Common Man," as his latest single.

The song, written with Tom Douglas, deals with economic issues and tough times. "That's what I remember about growing up," said Vassar. "That's how it was at my house.

Prayer Of A Common Man with the Fisk Jubilee Singers to benefit Feeding America.

Vassar's voice still balances that fine line between smooth, soulful, and rugged, but ...
CD review - Greatest Hits Volume 1 Some may consider Phil Vassar mainly a songwriter, but truth be told he brought his show to Nashville's road in search of success as a singer. Somewhere along the way, lavish lyrics and piano man talents were found and fine-tuned. But this collection is the first to contain his versions of hits made famous by others. Although armed with powerful vocals, the music is somewhat of a disappointment, comparatively speaking. Some instrumentation on these "new" tracks seems strangely subdued in spots. ...
