Vance Joy has an original voice which at first he kept to himself. Feeding on a diet of The Pogues, Paul Kelly, and whatever else was playing, he cut his teeth performing at open mike nights in Melbourne, Australia. It is folk music with pop influences. His songs capture the familiar pulse of everyday experiences in a unique and celebratory manner. His lyrics will reach out to you and hold on for a moment.
Having reached #1 on Hype Machine during SXSW in March Riptide has received great early critical acclaim.
Neon Gold say ‘Vance Joy isn’t really our thing. But thank f*** we don’t listen to music on paper, because Joy’s debut single is one of the best thing’s to happen to us this year.’
Vance Joy tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Sep 2013.
