Music: Vance Joy

All the way from Melbourne, Australia is Vance Joy. The indie folk singer-songwriter was born James Keogh. He recently signed a 5 album deal with Atlantic Records and has just released his first album Dream Your Life Away this year.

My wonderful cousin showed me this gem and my favourite on the album is "Riptide" the instrumentals are so unreal starting with the ukulele and then bringing in the drums, it puts a smile on my face, I was sold about ten seconds in. He says the title for the song came from the name of a motel he used to go to with his family when he was younger.

I wanna be your left hand man / I love you when you’re singing that song and / I got a lump in my throat ‘cause / You’re gonna sing the words wrong
