Foy Vance

Foy Vance
Nice visuals let down by poor implementation. Unnecessary pop ups all over the shop and animation that is too slow and rough.
Design by Tonic design in Belfast and built by RTNetworks.

Oh help!
They actually ask you to turnoff your popup blocker before entering the site!!
If they expect me to change the way my browser behaves then they really are naive

I took a look at this site to find out more about Foy Vance and left very quickly without finding out anything. Probably the worst website I've visited in recent times. I'm not a designer or anything but it seems to me that unless you really know what you're doing you should keep it simple to get the message over.

Amazing singer/songwriter! However, the lack of content on his site is very disappointing!

who gives a shit about websites.(only the nerds of this world)i dont reckon foy cares either, if he was that worried about his web site, he would take a bit of time out from his incredible shows and become a web site designer. i know nothing about websites nor do i need to, but foys web site gives you everything you need to know. wise up get a life

I caught the lad supporting Bonnie Raitt in Glasgow at the Armadillo on Sat 8th April.He opened with A Jimi Hendrix tune Crosstown Traffic...and then played his own tunes for a wee while after..Exceptional vocals and superb lyrics.I decided to have a look for him on the web and sorry to say the site is a real let down which is a pity as his talent is definitely not..Redo the web site Foy keep it simple and free of crap..more like your performance straight to the point and flawlessly done.Good luck to you.

This site was brought to my attention...and I must say, I haven't laughed as much in a long time....let me also say this...I agree...the point of the site was to make it that you have to dig to find what you want...it's all there, you just need to look...i didn't want to make it too easy....but after a couple of weeks of it I realised that it annoyed me...ha, ironic isn't it! point is this...I'm in the process of redoing the site...simple and effective is the plot...be sure and let me know your thoughts...foy

Hey Foy, welcome :)
I never had as many replies, for so long as I have with this post. You have a legion of very dedicated fans. Have to say it has made me search out your music :)

One thing you should probably be aware of is that everyone is finding this post by searching for you on search engines like Google. Unfortunately they are unable to find you directly as your site is all flash.

Next time you are in the drogheda/dublin part of the country let me know and i will be along to the gig :)
