Hailing from Northern Ireland and deeply rooted in the rich musical history of the Southern United States,
Foy Vance has garnered acclaim from fans and fellow musicians alike since his independent debut album
release in 2007. Foy released his second LP, Joy of Nothing, in 2013 on Glassnote Records which led to
further critical praise and invites on tours from Ed Sheeran, Bonnie Raitt, Marcus Foster, Snow Patrol and
Sir Elton John. Additionally, Foy has headlined tours globally to sell-out crowds.
Foy was the second artist signed to Gingerbread Man Records, Ed Sheeran’s label division within Atlantic
Records. Foy’s debut recording with the label, The Wild Swan, was Executive Produced by Sir Elton John
and released in 2016. In 2019, Foy released two companion albums, From Muscle Shoals and To
Memphis, recorded at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Sam Phillips Recording Studio in
Memphis. His songwriting credits include co-writing four cuts on Ed Sheeran’s 2017 album Divide, the title
track on Sam Smith’s latest album Gloria and collaborations with Alicia Keys, Rag N Bone Man, Keith
Urban, Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert, Plan B and Rudimental.
Foy Vance's 2021 album, Signs Of Life, 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.
In 2022, Foy embarked on the Signs of Live + 15 Years of Hope tour, celebrating his latest album as well
as the anniversary of his debut record. This year, he’ll be heading out on the road once again to play
songs from one of his most impactful album’s, as well as tracks from the rest of his poignant discography
for the Regarding the Joy of Nothing Tour.
