Recorded in Donegal on Ireland’s west coast, Joy Of Nothing was Vance’s second full-length album and proved a critical and commercial breakthrough for the Bangor-born musician, winning the inaugural Northern Ireland Music Prize. All Music praised, “Steeped in the bold, big-sky expansiveness of the American Southwest, yet devoid of any of its machismo, Vance milks courage and strength from unflinching emotional honesty.”

Joy Of Nothing features Ed Sheeran (on “Guiding Light”) and Bonnie Raitt (on “You And I”), both of whom Vance supported on world tours, and he also toured with Sir Elton John and Snow Patrol, as well as his own sell-out headline tours.

Comments Foy:

“It is hard to believe it has been 10 years since releasing the Joy of Nothing. Thanks to all of you that have listened to it. To those of you that have shared stories with me of what the album has meant to you, oftentimes opening my eyes to sides of the songs that I never knew existed. It’s hard to articulate how much it means to have created something that you can inhabit just as well as I can. Regarding The Joy of Nothing… well it still exists and there is joy in it yet…here’s to the next decade of ’naught and everything’.”
