When I go to a gig and I hear a song that I really like, a song that hits home to me or hits an emotional nerve, if I could ever recreate that for someone, that would be the ultimate goal.
— Vance Joy
It's a weird thing to say you want people to be sick of your song, but I guess that's what happens if your song goes really well.
I'm a folk singer-songwriter. I am pretty poppy though.
I'm definitely not a super great guitarist. Ultimately, I just write a lot of love songs.
I feel like I'd have a different approach to football now after doing music.
The fact I even get an opportunity to make one album is crazy. But if all goes to plan, I'll get to make five albums. That'd be nice.
I just got a band together in mid-2012, and we played our first show in October of that year.
I like to get suggestions on what to read. I'll look at Twitter, people I like, people I admire... I'll go and research the book, download it on my phone and read it while I'm on the road.
I wasn't completely comfortable in the footy culture because I wasn't that comfortable in my own skin, which I am now. I'd fit in better now, but I don't miss the training and the injuries you get playing footy.
Ralph Fiennes and Edward Norton are among my favorite actors.
I really honestly can't see myself as a lawyer. It's pretty much safe to say I'll never become one.
Sometimes when you're writing a song and that song comes into your head, it definitely comes from somewhere, like a real experience.
