Every once in a while an artist emerges to shake you from your seat and touch your soul, singing as if it were the last time he would ever perform. With a distinctive, cracked, soulful voice and a skill to write profound storytelling songs, Foy Vance belongs to a calibre of artists that stands the test of time, irrespective of trends or fads, delivering heartfelt songs about the human condition that everyone can relate to.


Foy
arrived into the public consciousness with the release of his widely acclaimed debut EP Live Sessions and the Birth of the Toilet Tour. A series of gigs that saw him support such diverse artists as KT Tunstall, Tegan and Sara, Pete Townshend, Joss Stone and blues legend Taj Mahal led to two sold-out shows at Ronnie Scotts, which further confirmed his reputation, now rapidly growing via word of mouth, that Foy is a major talent. These shows amassed a dedicated fan-base and gained Foy support and admiration from his peers, including nine-time Grammy award winner Bonnie Raitt, who invited Foy to join her as special guest on her UK/European tour which kicked off in April of 2006.


An overwhelming response from US and Canadian audiences, due to the airing of two of Foys songs (Homebird as featured on the new EP, and Gabriel and the Vagabond) on the cult ABC network TV drama, Greys Anatomy (as selected by The OCs music supervisor, Alex Patsavas) and a showcase at SXSW, has led to a huge demand for the immediate release of Gabriel and the Vagabond as a single on iTunes in the US.


In between support slots with Rodrigo y Gabriela and Dave Matthews earlier this year, Foy recorded a new collection of songs that comprise the forthcoming EP, Watermelon Oranges, released as a limited edition on Wurdamouth Records, on 24th July. Watermelon Oranges unveils another dimension to the melancholic, introspective mood of Foys debut, Live Sessions and the Birth of the Toilet Tour.


Foy remarked recently "The whole purpose of any recording is that it represents a moment in an artists life and I feel that this record does exactly that for me. The idea behind the EP was to create an environment that would allow the songs to breathe. I wanted this record to sound as natural as when the songs are being played live."


In Foys world nothing happens by accident, and it was in this manner that the people who launched Joss Stone (Brian Freshwater and Jacqueline Hughes) came across some of his recordings. The studio manager at Intimate Studios (Wapping) insisted that we listen to some tracks a new artist had been working on. Stunned by what we heard we went on a mission to track the man down, Brian says. When we first saw Foy playing live we knew he was the real deal. The way he communicates his wonderful poignant songs, with his astonishing, emotive soul voice just gives you goose bumps. We immediately recognised that this was an authentic artist with something special to convey.
