Foy Vance has become the second signing to Ed Sheeran’s new label Gingerbread Man Records, following debut signing Jamie Lawson whose self-titled album went straight to No.1 last month.

Vance and Sheeran are long-term friends who have frequently toured together and collaborated on their most recent albums; Sheeran sings on Vance’s single Guiding Light from his 2013 album Joy Of Nothing, while Vance co-wrote Tenerife Sea and Afire Love from Sheeran’s 2014 multi-platinum album X, and wrote Make It Rain, the Sheeran-performed series closer to FX’s hit drama Sons of Anarchy.

Ed Sheeran said of the signing: “I am very happy to reveal Foy Vance as my second signing to Gingerbread Man Records. Foy’s always been an artist I’ve admired since meeting him in 2006. We’ve become touring buddies over the past few years and he’s actually out in Australia with me at the moment on the final leg of my ‘x’ tour. His vocals are going to blow you away and I can’t wait for you all to hear the record.”
Vance’s first album for Gingerbread Man Records is pencilled for release in the Spring of 2016.

“I feel a deep sense of peace signing to an artist led label, not least of all because the artist in question is our Ed,” says Vance. “Every time I’ve turned around in the last few years he has had my back.”

Originally from Bangor, Northern Ireland, but now living in the Scottish Highlands, Vance won the won the inaugural Northern Ireland Music Prize in 2013 for his critically acclaimed second album Joy Of Nothing. Earlier this year he co-wrote and provided the vocals on Rudimental’s hit single Never Let You Go.
