James Gabriel Keogh knows as Vance Joy, Nation Of Two World Tour will see the acclaimed Australian singer/songwriter take on some of his biggest stages yet including Revention Music Center in Houston on May 2nd.

Vance signed a five-album deal with Atlantic Records in 2013. “ I would say that I am an acoustic singer-songwriter with pop influences” he said.

“Call If You Need Me,” the fifth and final track unveiled before the Nation Of Two album release (Feb 23), is the hauntingly beautiful album opener featuring Vance Joy’s trademark visual lyrics, painting pictures of fluorescent lights and conversations through foggy shower glass. The accompanying visual, which features Vance Joy delivering an emotional performance in a beautiful, stripped-back setting, was filmed by frequent collaborator Mimi Cave, who also directed videos for the album’s first single “Lay It On Me” and the recently released “We’re Going Home.”

With still two weeks until the release of Nation of Two, the album has already amassed over 90 million global streams, accounted for by the four tracks Vance Joy has unveiled throughout the past few months. The Nation Of Two campaign launched with massive alternative hit single, “Lay It On Me,” and was followed by releases of “Like Gold,” “We’re Going Home,” and “Saturday Sun,” the latter of which will mark the album’s second U.S. single. A promising fan-favorite, the bright and uplifting “Saturday Sun” was streamed over one million times in its first five days of release, and is currently impacting alternative radio stations nationwide.

Vance Joy – who is currently featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Australia – will celebrate his Nation Of Two album release week with a run of high-profile national TV performances, beginning with CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday, February 27th followed by NBC’s Today on Friday, March 2nd. The March 6th episode of NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly will feature two previously filmed live performances by Vance Joy from Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre.  

Nation of Two is the follow up to Vance Joy’s critically-acclaimed breakthrough debut album Dream Your Life Away, which recently surpassed one million in consumption in the U.S. alone. The album spawned the 4x Platinum blockbuster hit, “Riptide” and RIAA Platinum certified “Mess Is Mine.” Dream Your Life Away also featured “fire and the flood” and “Georgia,” which are both now certified Gold. Based on the success of these songs.

Vance Joy was the #1 Most Played artist at Alternative radio in 2015.

    I want to see Vance because I’ve always loved his music and anytime I listen to him it makes me so happy and puts me in a better mood. I’m always excited to listen to new songs he’s created or even find old songs and fall in love with those. My best friend and I become friends by talking about him and other artists we share I would really love to take her to see him
