Jack Joyce is a 19 year old, Dublin based up and coming unsigned Irish multi instrumentalist singer-songwriter first embarked on his music career at the age of sixteen when he began booking and performing gigs in local pubs and clubs. From a young age, Jack has been composing his own songs and released his debut demo EP, Get Down, in October 2018. Jack Joyce’s sound delivers a unique acoustic, indie-pop style. His cleverly crafted lyrics blend wit and poetry to create a perfect balance between insight and humour.
Drawing influence from the epic works of Arctic Monkeys, Pulp and Leonard Cohen, Jack Joyce’s song-writing is something to be experienced. Jack spent the beginning of the summer of 2019 busking and backpacking around Europe, seeking out new inspirations and sounds for his futher music releases.. Following his return he sold out The Vintage Room in the Workman's Club. He followed this by opening for Cassia upstairs in Whelan’s and playing a slot at the New Year’s Festival in Dublin.
His latest release Black Cat by the Bins follows the previous offering Voodoo Belladonna and continues on the similar dark arrangement. The track is based on the electric guitar riff that sets the mysterious, almost a ritual-like vibe. Joyce has found his sound. He's a confident performer not affraid to experiment, spread his wings. There's an unsettling feeling throughout the track, only adding to the mystery.
"I saw a black cat by the bins, and I haven’t been the same since”.
