Vance Joy
Vance Joy
For Melbourne-based singer and songwriter Vance Joy, his songs began as a collection of loose threads, which over time naturally weaved together, like they were always meant to find a life of their own.

Like the unforced orchestration of his songs, Vance Joy's recent success developed organically. Earning his chops on Melbourne's open mic circuit, he tested out new material at venues like the iconic Great Britain Hotel in Richmond. Naturally, his music attracted fans, press and label interest. Before long, the musician played sold out Autralian tours and penned a deal with Liberation Music in Australia, Atlantic Records for the rest of the world, and Infectious Music for the UK. He's supported Of Monsters and Men, Julia Stone, Bernard Fanning locally, Lissie & Tom Odell across the USA, and headlined sold out Canada & UK shows.

Vance Joy's love of music was inspired by his mother's aptitude at literature and his father's fondness of singing. His parents' vast, eclectic record collection only served to heighten his partiality to it - while he was growing up he would listen to everything from The Pogues to Paul Kelly. After completing a university degree in law, he decided to take a year's break to focus on making music. He travelled to India and South-East Asia with a collection of songs rattling around in his head. When he came home, they all fell into place. "I'm learning subtleties in my voice, understanding what I sound like and trying to embrace who I am," he intimates. "It wasn't rushed song writing at all."
