Okay, letโ€™s get into the Ten questions for Valentine Joyce!


๐Ÿญ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฏ๐—ฏ๐˜†?

I'm from Dublin, Ireland. My main hobby would be music but I guess that's kind of obvious really.


๐Ÿฎ. ๐—›๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฑ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ผ ๐— ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ/๐— ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป

My dad is very much into music (Irish Traditional) and has been playing all sorts of instruments for as long as I can remember. My first memory of trying to play anything was trying my dads Spanish guitar when I was about 4. I just kept hitting one string until I got a huge blister on my thumb. I played piano when I was a teenager and got a keyboard soon after. Eventually, I got a steel string guitar which soon became my most prized possession.


๐Ÿฏ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ผ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ณ๐—น๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€?

That's hard to say as I really like nearly all kinds of music. My dad influenced me in a big way to start playing but in more of a monkey see, monkey do way rather than trying to force me to play. Since my early 20s I've been in a band called Pots and Pans which started out as me and my mate (Diarmuid) sitting down one night and starting to write songs out of the blue. We soon joined up with another lost soul (Andreas). Those 2 guys have influenced me a lot, especially Diarmuid as the co-writer of the songs we play.


๐Ÿฐ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฑ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—บ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ?

Ever since I can remember I've been "making stuff up" but I only starting trying to record on and off since my early 20s.


๐Ÿฑ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ด๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜†?

I make music because I like to make music. It's an itch that needs to be scratched for me. There are many aspects to creating music from mucking about with an instrument and coming up with the seed for an idea all the way to recording a full track. Satisfaction can be drawn from music at all points and my most recent goal was just to see my song being available on Spotify. Insanely satisfying! For now, I'd like to get more songs released and watch the listenership increase.


๐Ÿฒ. ๐—œ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—บ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ?

I'd like to have been onstage at Live Aid '85 playing a tambourine (or anything!) during both the Queen and U2 slots. Standing right beside Freddie and Bono. Failing that, as long as people were having a good time, I'd be happy anywhere.


๐Ÿณ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—ณ๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ด?

That's a hard one as it keeps changing. At Christmas time, it's definitely Fairytale Of New York by The Pogues.


๐Ÿด. ๐— ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜?

From a musical point of view, I did a gig once and my fellow singer/songwriter who was supposed to be performing with me got there early and started having a few pints to calm his nerves. By the time we were due to go on he wasn't in tip top condition. It didn't go well.


๐Ÿต. ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—”๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜?

My family.


๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ. ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—น๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ฒ?

Good one! I'd like to work in a studio for a day with The Traveling Wilburys. It would be a bonus to have Damien Dempsey and John Lennon there. And, of course, if Elvis and Freddie showed up........ maybe they could bring Mark Knopfler with them. The PSB could produce.
