Vance Joy makes me feel so old, but how I love him. I love his music. Every single song. I admire his songwriting. His lyrics are old like me. Listen to some of these:
"I know, I know that I can do no wrong in my father's eyes/And I swear I swear that I will test this out/before the day I die." - Play with Fire
"And I will read in to everything you don't say/All of your silent ways" - Red Eye
"Think that it's worth it? Well I hope that you're right/You're falling asleep/on the Red Eye tonight." - Red Eye
"Do you like walking in the rain? When you think of love/do you think of pain?" - Mess is Mine
"[You] Say I don't look much like a lover/Doesn't mean that I won't try/to set your world on fire/every once in awhile." - Best that I Can
"Don't walk too proud/don't talk too loud/And make it up as you go/And take whatever you are given/And leave what you think you know/at the door." - My Kind of Man
The concert was amazing. He switched between two guitars and his ukulele. He told us anecdotes; he was warm and funny.
Amazing music and a great rapport with the audience. I bet the next time I see him, it won't be in a small place like the Phoenix.
