About Foy Vance
Foy Vance was born in 1974 in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. After many years in the business, he released his first single, 'Gabriel and the Vagabond', in December 2006 on Wurdamouth Records. He had previously released two limited edition EPs on the same label. This was followed in the summer of 2007 by his debut album, 'Hope', again on the same label. This was met with some enthusiasm but nothing compared to his second album. Early in 2008 he also did a short tour of British prisons!
At the beginning of 2011, Vance was in Los Angeles, finishing his recording of 'The Melrose EP'. This was not released until August of the following year. It had four new tracks and is the score of the Academy Award winning film, 'The Shore.' It was later in 2012 that Vance was a supporting act on Ed Sheeran's UK tour.
Vance signed a new deal with Glassnote records in 2013 and his second album, 'Joy of Nothing', was released in August of that year. Both Ed Sheeran and Bonnie Raitt
are featured on the album.
Vance signed with Sheeran's record label, Gingerbread Man Records in 2016 and then came the release of his third album, 'The Wild Swan. After so many years in the shadows, it seems that Foy Vance, in these last few years is, at last, getting the recognition he deserves.
