"Eyes of the City" is the long awaited, self-produced debut release from veteran Chicago-based guitarist/singer/composer/producer Vince Agwada that finds the journeyman guitarist tearing loose on an exciting 13-song collection of Blues, Rock, Jazz and R&B based numbers that will blow your socks off.
Check out Agwada's muscular fretwork on such scorching tracks as "Blooze" and "I'm Coming Home" and you'll soon discover why this great player is the guitarist of choice for some of the best known names in the blues. Other highlights include "Ellie" with its strong contemporary jazz feel, and the magnificent "Come on In" that features some of Agwada's vicious slide work. Harmonica virtuoso Sugar Blue guests on the majestic "Rain," while "It's a Shame," "Car Wash Blues," and "Hard to Cry" find Agwada putting his personal stamp on some of the most engaging contemporary blues to be released this year. "Eyes of the City" is a terrific new album that marks the coming of age of a truly unique artist.

He has toured the United States, Canada and Europe with many of Chicago's premiere acts including Bernie Mac, Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Zora Young, Jimmy Johnson, Son Seals, Junior Wells, Valerie Wellington, The Dells, Sugar Blue, Larry McCray, and Magic Slim as well as his own outfits, One Eyed Jax, and the Vince Agwada Band.
