Jack Joyce - Voodoo Belladonna (single)
Jack Joyce 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 new single Voodoo Belladonna is his sixth release since February 2020. There is dark aura around the song, the low tones in Joyce's vocal come across as the perfect way to interpret the message. What a difference a year makes. A teenage boy singing about love a year ago and now a young man finding his own feet in the darker and more serious topics. These are well suited his range too so here's hoping he stays in these waters for a while.
