Share This Article:

Folk act Vance Joy has been causing quite the buzz down under.

James Keogh’s summery acoustic project has won over the Australian public as his debut single 'Riptide' shot to number 7 in the charts.

Stylistically, Vance Joy sits somewhere between Jack Johnson and Ben Howard, drawing on the acoustic surfer vibe that brought his predecessors so much success.

The majority of interest around Vance Joy centres on 'Riptide', a cheery, uplifting track that shines in its simplicity.

An understated ukulele melody allows Keogh’s falsetto vocals to shine, and the hook filled chorus is a masterpiece in infectious folk.

In 2014, the UK have slowly taken to Vance Joy, and 'Riptide' currently sits comfortably in the top 40.

Having signed a multi-album deal with Atlantic records, this won’t be the last we see of Vance Joy, whose laid back folk has a bright future.
