Vance Joy has an original voice which at first he kept to himself. Feeding on a diet of The Pogues, Paul Kelly, and whatever else was playing, he cut his teeth performing at open mike nights in Melbourne. It is folk music with pop influences. His songs capture the familiar pulse of everyday experiences in a unique and celebratory manner. His lyrics will reach out to you and hold on for a moment.
From an intimate event in Venice, CA, Vance Joy announced to his fans via a global Facebook Live stream, his biggest headline tour to date, the “Nation of Two World Tour.” Alongside the massive world tour announce, the multi-platinum artist surprised fans with another new song and visual, “Call If You Need Me,” from his eagerly-awaited sophomore album Nation of Two, due February 23. Watch/listen to “Call If You Need Me,” at https://youtu.be/dQjTQFRZsD4.
Vance Joy’s “Nation of Two World Tour” will see the acclaimed Australian singer/songwriter take on some of his biggest stages yet. The North American leg of the tour will get underway April 13th in Berkeley, CA at the Greek Theatre and includes a stopover at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on May 8th.
“Call If You Need Me,” the fifth and final track unveiled before the Nation of Two album release (Feb 23), is the hauntingly beautiful album opener featuring Vance Joy’s trademark visual lyrics, painting pictures of fluorescent lights and conversations through foggy shower glass. With still two weeks until the release of Nation of Two, the album has already amassed over 60 million global streams, accounted for by the four tracks Vance Joy has unveiled throughout the past few months. The Nation of Two campaign launched with massive alternative hit single, “Lay It on Me,” and was followed by releases of “Like Gold,” “We’re Going Home,” and “Saturday Sun.” A promising fan-favorite, the bright and uplifting “Saturday Sun” was streamed over one million times in its first five days of release, and is currently impacting alternative radio stations nationwide.
Vance Joy – who is currently featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Australia – will celebrate his Nation of Two album release week with a run of high-profile national TV performances, beginning with CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday, February 27th followed by NBC’s Today on Friday, March 2nd. The March 6th episode of NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly will feature two previously filmed live performances by Vance Joy from Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre.
Nation of Two is the follow up to Vance Joy’s critically-acclaimed breakthrough debut album Dream Your Life away, which recently surpassed one million in consumption in the U.S. alone. The album spawned the 4x Platinum blockbuster hit, “Riptide” and RIAA Platinum certified “Mess Is Mine.” Dream Your Life Away also featured “Fire and the Flood” and “Georgia,” which are both now certified Gold. Based on the success of these songs, Vance Joy was the #1 Most Played artist at Alternative radio in 2015.
