    Foy lands in Australia off the back of extensive North American dates, performing three sold out nights in Belfast with the Ulster Orchestra last week.

    “Ranging from tender ballads to full-band country rock, this Queen’s Hall performance from Foy Vance was a show of many moods” – The Scotsman (4-stars)

    “Vance puts on an unmissable, well-crafted performance. His music is thought-provoking and real. Live, he hits you in your core, powerful and self-reflective. A must-see musician.” – Louder Than War

    Deeply rooted in the rich musical history and aesthetic of the Southern United States, Foy Vance independently released his debut album Hope in 2007, quickly garnering acclaim from fans and fellow musicians alike. His second full-length album, Joy of Nothing (2013) led to critical praise and star-studded invites on tours worldwide from the likes of Ed Sheeran, Bonnie Raitt, Snow Patrol and Sir Elton John. Foy was only the second artist signed to Gingerbread Man Records, Ed Sheeran’s label, when he released The Wild Swan in 2016, Executive Produced by Sir Elton John. His music video for the lead single ‘She Burns’ featured Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale.

    Foy’s widespread collaborations include co-writing multiple cuts on Ed Sheeran’s 2014 album X, 2017 album Divide, and his latest album Equal. He has also worked with Alicia Keys, Rag N Bone Man, Keith Urban, Kacey Musgraves and Miranda Lambert, among many others.

    Signs Of Life (2021) marked Foy’s second studio album ‘proper’ on Gingerbread Man Records and was a testament to his abilities as a songwriter. The thoughtful and poignant album was written and played more or less entirely by Vance, with assistance from young Northern Irish producer Gareth Dunlop, and received global recognition.

    The Joy of Nothing (Anniversary Edition), was released in August 2023 in celebration of the album's 10 year anniversary. This deluxe album includes all original Joy of Nothing tracks, with three bonus singles written at the same time.

    Foy Vance is a true musical force; don’t miss the opportunity to catch this exquisite live performer when he lands in Australia this November!
