Not just a hit in the UK, Riptide has also just been voted #1 Triple J’s Hottest 100 for 2013 in his native Australia, beating Lorde’s ‘Royals’ & Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ to the number 1 spot, confirming the track really is a worldwide smash.
The past few weeks, has seen Vance Joy recording his debut album with Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers) in his Bear Creek Studios, near Seattle, ready for release in 2014. “I’ve been in Seattle recording for my album, they actually have a tree house studio.” A lover of the outdoors, he loved being 20ft up in the air, where he thrived in the unique recording space. “The time I spent here was really great. It was cool being able to live at the studio”.
