You don’t sell over two million copies of your debut album without some serious hard work, and Australian singer/songwriter Vance Joy has never been shy of major elbow grease. When Vance Joy first cut his teeth performing at open mic nights in Melbourne, he was feeding on a diet of artists like The Pogues and Paul Kelly. By 2013 he was ready to introduce the world to his ukulele-led charm ‘Riptide,’ which became an instant global classic. The connection and journey his music was about to have on the world in years to come was an unexpected reward to the young songwriter.
Vance Joy (born James Keogh) consolidated on that first impression with further anthems ‘Mess is Mine,’ ‘Georgia’ and ‘Fire and the Flood.’ Those hits all found a home on the 2014’s debut ‘dream your life away.’ Vance Joy spent 2013 and 2014 playing clubs around the world before the album was released which then saw him surface everywhere from singing on the American Idol Season Final to being handpicked to open Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour, festivals from Lollapalooza in Chicago and South America, to Coachella, Splendour in the Grass and the AFL Grand Final.
It’s no surprise that listeners all over the world connect to Vance Joys intimate yet anthemic songwriting. His lyrics take you on a journey that will reach out and hold you for a delicate moment. Bringing together a unique, charming mix of folk music with pop influences, these songs capture the familiar pulse of everyday experiences in a unique and celebratory manner. — do512.com
