VANCE JOY

Where Calgary - - HOT ENTERTAINMENT -

July 5 In be­tween an in­ter­na­tional tour open­ing for Tay­lor Swift, the very tal­ented folk-rock mu­si­cian Vance Joy stops in Cal­gary for a Cal­gary Stam­pede Coca-Cola Stage show (page 20). Lis­ten to "Mess is Mine" and get ready to sing along: What’s your favourite part of a live show ex­pe­ri­ence? "I think of my shows as raw, I hope they give the au­di­ence a sense of my per­son­al­ity. I like when there's a vibe be­tween me and the au­di­ence, when we're re­ally en­gaged with each other and they sing along. It’s a cool feel­ing and I’m very lucky—when you write mu­sic you're string­ing sen­tences to­gether, and know­ing that some­one has con­nected to it—that’s a great feel­ing.” What can the au­di­ence ex­pect at the show? “I’ll be do­ing some cov­ers, which are good to do, be­cause ev­ery­one can sing along. We’ll play a cover of Fleet­wood Mac’s ‘The Chain’ be­cause it’s such a great song and it gives peo­ple some­thing else to con­nect to.” Joy also hints at play­ing new mu­sic—per­haps his re­cently re­leased sin­gle “Great Sum­mer” and his cover of tour mate Tay­lor Swift’s “I Know Places."
