Foy Vance -

Foy Vance was born in the North Ireland town of Bangor, but his passionfor traditional music was born in the southern states of America. As a child, Foy relocated with his father, a preacher, to the American Midwest settling in Oklahoma. With his father, Foy travelled the American South, widening his horizons and absorbing the rich musical traditions he was exposed to. Returning to Ireland some years later, Foy began writing his own music, deeply shaped by the sounds of his youth. Since those days, he has spent a considerable amount of time traveling the World, touring with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Michael Kiwanuka and more. Foy also scored Oscar-winning short-film The Shore with David Holmes, and has had his music used in countless films and television shows over the last two-years. A seasoned songwriter, Foy has written for and collaborated with a number of artists, including recent cuts on Ed Sheeran's newest album, X. Foy's first ever live album, Live at Bangor Abbey was released in February 2015 on Glassnote Records. The album features 16 tracks, all recorded at the historic Bangor Abbey in Foy's hometown. Foy will spend much of 2015 in studio, writing and recoding the followup to his critically acclaimed Glassnote Records debut, Joy of Nothing.
