 “Every time I see Foy play I get annoyed more people don’t know about him…inspiration just comes being in a room and guitar-jamming: with him, songs just come out” Ed Sheeran

“Tub-thumping, soulful folk rock….in tune with prime Van Morrison” Q

“He’s Bruce Springsteen and Van Morrison sewn into the same skin with an Irish soul” No Depression

Foy Vance has today revealed details of his new Feel For Me EP, out 26th September on Glassnote Records.  The four-track Feel For Me EP is the third single to be taken from Vance’s award-winning album Joy Of Nothing, and follows You & I, which featured vocals from the legendary Bonnie Raitt.

Vance has also been announced as the support to Ed Sheeran this year at the iTunes Festival that takes place in London’s well know venue the Roundhouse on September 29th. Firm friends, Sheeran and Vance have toured together extensively – including Vance supporting Sheeran at Madison Square Garden last December – and appear on each other’s most recent albums. Sheeran sang backing vocals on Guiding Light from Joy Of Nothing, Vance returns the favour on Afire Love on Sheeran’s new album X, and has a co-writing credit on the track Tenerife Sea. Sheeran also references his friend in these lyrics from Take It Back:

“With a closed hands full of friends/ Is good advice from a man/ Who took his life on the road with me/ And I hope to see him blow up globally/ Cause that’s how it’s supposed to be”

Last November, Joy Of Nothing was announced as the winner of the inaugural Northern Ireland Music Prize, ahead of albums from Two Door Cinema Club, Tired Pony, And So I Watch You From Afar, and Girls Names. Vance plays two sold-out hometown shows at Bangor Abbey later this month.
