Foy Vance celebrates 10 years of his award-winning 2013 album Joy Of Nothing with his Regarding The Joy Of Nothing World Tour.
The tour includes a stop in Australia for three special headline shows this November, the first time since he has visited our shores since sold out national dates in 2016.
Recorded in Donegal on Ireland’s west coast, Joy Of Nothing was Vance’s second full-length album and proved a critical and commercial breakthrough for the Bangor-born musician, winning the inaugural Northern Ireland Music Prize and being described by Q magazine as “soulful folk rock, in tune with prime Van Morrison”.
The album features Ed Sheeran and Bonnie Rait, both of whom Vance supported on world tours. He also toured with Sir Elton John and Snow Patrol, as well as his own sell-out headline tours.
Comments Foy: “It is hard to believe it has been 10 years since releasing the Joy of Nothing. Thanks to all of you that have listened to it. To those of you that have shared stories with me of what the album has meant to you, oftentimes opening my eyes to sides of the songs that I never knew existed. It’s hard to articulate how much it means to have created something that you can inhabit just as well as I can. Regarding The Joy of Nothing… well it still exists and there is joy in it yet…here’s to the next decade of ’naught and everything’.”
In 2015, Vance became Ed Sheeran’s second signing to his label Gingerbread Man Records. As an in-demand songwriter, Vance’s collaborations include co-writing four cuts including “Galway Girl” on Ed Sheeran’s Divide album. He has also worked with Alicia Keys, Rag N Bone Man, Keith Urban, Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert, Plan B and Rudimental among many others, effortlessly switching between genres.
