Melbourne singer-song writer Vance Joy has much to celebrate after announcing he’s been signed to the iconic Atlantic Records.
Signed to Liberation music in Australia, the record deal with Atlantic will encompass all territories globally with the exception of Australia and New Zealand.
Vance Joy joins an impressive array of new talent on the label’s roster, including Death Cab for Cutie, Janelle Monae and Charli XCX.
"We are extremely happy to welcome Vance Joy to the Atlantic Records family. From the moment Craig Kallman and I heard the first demos, we knew this was something truly special. It's not very often you find an artist whose every song moves you in some way” – Stefan Max, A&R Atlantic Records
Vance Joy’s debut EP ‘God Loves You When You’re Dancing’ will be released internationally by Atlantic over the coming months.
It’s already been a very successful 2013 for Vance who just finished a sold out EP tour of Australia’s east coast. In addition, Joy has just confirmed a host of US tour dates throughout May and June. He has also been announced on this year’s Splendour In The Grass line-up and has the huge honour of supporting Bernard Fanning on his ‘Departures Tour’ in July and August.
