New York, NY- Glassnote Entertainment Group is excited to introduce the newest addition to the independent label’s roster with the global signing of singer-songwriter Foy Vance.
Foy Vance hails from the seaside town of Bangor in Northern Ireland. As a child, Foy relocated with his father, a preacher, to the American Midwest, settling in Oklahoma. With his father, Foy travelled the American South, widening his horizons and absorbing the rich musical traditions he was exposed to. Returning to Ireland some years later, Foy began writing his own music, deeply shaped by the sounds of his youth. After a recent session with Daytrotter, they described Foy’s songs and lyrics: “They will haunt you with light. They'll haunt you with pangs of love. They'll haunt you with the tears of others. They'll make you realize that you've never felt anything even as remotely deep as he has.”
Foy Vance has spent the past month on a sold out tour with Ed Sheeran in North America, and previously toured with the likes of Michael Kiwanuka and David Gray. Foy is currently in the studio finishing his album Joy of Nothing, his debut release on Glassnote Records. The title track from the upcoming record is available now through all digital service providers and the video for ‘Joy of Nothing,’ a touching adventure on the road with Foy, is streaming now via FoyVance.com and can be viewed here.
Manifacier is a singer-songwriter who grew up in the small-town brushes of southern France, learning piano and guitar from a young age; he taught himself the subtle beauty of music, which he now combines with a modern approach to song-making to release 'Grande'.
From France he moved to California where he met, supported and joined a community of local musicians, with whom he could expand his ideas of song-writing and begin to form the tracks that would eventually become a collection of songs that slowly burn into a fire-pit of sensational melodies. The delicacy of Manifacier's material was partly down to inspiration, party to environment, many of the songs being born and developed in coffee shops across The Valley, where he would woo crowds in two languages through his yielding, mournful voice and unconditional passion.
His first EP, 'The Seed Became A Tree', was recorded at the Modesto Sound Studio in California with the help of local Californian artists, and went on to receive high praise from tastemaker press across France, bringing him to the attention of Tape Club Records in the UK.
Yonat and Her Muse
Yonat Mayer is a refreshing voice in today's Bay Area independent music scene. Her music is at once soul stirring and soulful. It is a perfect blend of a mature, introspective Carole King and a sassy, young Adele. Raised by two deeply spiritual parents, with her father also being a skilled blues and jazz guitarist, Yonat's first musical influences made strong impressions on her young spirit. Embracing meditation and yoga in her late teens, she effortlessly brings self-awareness to her lyrics and soulful melodies. Her poise and joy in any musical setting are remarkable as she is just as comfortable performing solo with a loop-pedal sitting on the floor of a yoga studio as she is fronting a 6 piece-band at a night club. She has shared the stage with artists such as the British 50s throwback family band Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, post rock musician, Fink and pop Israeli icon David Broza, and performed around the world in Haiti, India, and Israel while holding down a residency as a Yoga Tree in-house musician. Her message to "mind your muse, tend your tribe" is a call to each person in the audience to listen to their own inner voice and support each other through all aspects of the human condition. Yonat is a mesmerizing talent whose music paints the narrative of a guide and inspiration to those who listen deeply. But even those who don't hear the words, will certainly feel the groove. She is close to releasing a new EP produced by the Bay Area's Jordan Feinstein and Robin Applewood.
