Vance Joy live at CFOX

Vance Joy stopped by the radio factory today in front of his second SOLD OUT show at the Orpheum in Vancouver.  He performed his hit “Fire and The Flood” for us.

I also asked him about the stage name, “Vance Joy.” How did that come about? Vance was born James and used to play at a cafe during brunch. He’d perform a collection of covers (like Fuel’s “Shimmer”) and originals. Inspired by a character from the Peter Carey book Bliss, he branded his brunch set Vance Joy and here we are.

I feel like I kept it pretty cool. Too bad I can’t say the same for my colleague Meredith!

Thursday, Jon Williams and I got spoiled at the Radio Factory.  We had our Zone Band of the Month Geoff Lundstrom in to perform his single “Wash The Dirt Off.”  But then the dude stuck around and recorded a cover of Lorde‘s Much Mega Hit, “Royals.”  His trio consisted of himself with Amy and Chris on keys.  Amy let Jon hold her 1948 Martin D 28 acoustic guitar!

Earlier, we had Victoria’s Zerbin in studio.  The boys dropped a beautiful take on The National‘s  “I Need My Girl.”

Maybe you’ll be able to get behind one of these covers and you’ll share it with your friends.
