Vance Joy is an up and coming alternative artist that has been around for a few years. But last year the single "Riptide" took off for him and is starting to make the rounds on pop radio.

I love alternative music especially when a really good song crosses over to pop radio too. Echosmith, fun., Imagine Dragons just to name a few, have all crossed over big time. and now it looks to be Vance Joy's turn. Also known as James Keogh and hailing from Australia, this is his year.

Check out the newest single "Mess Is Mine" below too. It is going to be huge soon!
