Foy Vance

The Wild Swan



Released: 13th May 2016


lp + download

Released: 13th May 2016


recorded in Nashville & produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Jacquire King, Recording legend Elton John is the album’s Executive Producer & it's released on ed sheeran's gingerbread man records (the pair are long-term friends).

Vance was born in Bangor, Northern Ireland but his preacher father packed the family up & moved to Oklahoma, deep in the U.S. Bible Belt, shortly after the birth of the family's youngest son. with a sound sitting somewhere between van morrison, jd mcpherson, david gray & leon russell, it's an album that makes nods to, & takes cues from, heroes ranging from Noam Chomsky to Ziggy Stardust to WB Yeats. "an extraordinary writer & singer" - elton john, "I’m constantly blown away with how talented he is. 'The Wild Swan' is an amazing album & I can’t wait for everyone to hear it” - ed sheeran.
