VANCE JOY - 'Dream Your Life Away' debuts #1 on ARIA Album Charts - Plus RIPTIDE five times platinum

Liberation and the Mushroom Group are thrilled to confirm Vance Joy’s highly anticipated debut album Dream Your Life Away (released September 5) has debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Charts, easing out label mate Jimmy Barnes on the way to the top spot and affirming Vance Joy’s continually rising star.

Head of the Mushroom Group, Michael Gudinski said today “We’re incredibly excited for Vance Joy who we truly believe has a unique gift and has all the necessary ingredients to one day be included in the greats of Australia’s singer/songwriters. He has a stellar team around him and will go from strength to strength both here and abroad”.

Vance Joy made a flying visit to Australia for a jam-packed schedule of interviews and performances across the country to celebrate his album’s release.  The celebrations carried on well into Friday evening of release day with an amazing sold out show at Melbourne’s beautiful Athenaeum Theatre.

Dream Your Life Away has received an incredible amount of support and praise to date;

In further good news, ‘Riptide’ - the Melbourne troubadour’s most successful hit to date and triple j Hottest 100 #1 song of 2013 - has just hit five times platinum sales in Australia! Riptide is also making waves overseas, reaching Top 10 and Gold sales in the UK, steadily climbing the Billboard Hot 100 for the past 11 weeks (currently sitting at #59) and holding strong at #1 on the Alternative Radio chart in the US for 5 weeks running.
