Nashville’s EG Vines is set to release his sophomore album, Through the Mirror, on August 27. The album is a follow-up to his well-received 2019 debut Family Business. Since that release, Vines quit his day job in order to pursue music full-time. This album is a result of no longer having to split his day-to-day focus and includes his reactions and observations of an increasingly polarized world.

As he looks around at the music scene, Vines knows he can provide perspectives and ideas listeners crave. “There’s more to say here, and I just decided I wanted to really dig in,” he explains. With Through the Mirror, EG Vines is delivering on his promise and proving himself to be an essential voice in music.
