  1. I heard Riptide about a year ago. I just sat there in awe for a while. At the time I had just picked up the uke and I loved it. He’s been a big inspiration to me ever since.

  2. I love Riptide because the song is AMAZING and the ukulele is so catchy, and the music video is in tribute to Wes Anderson movies.

  3. The radios nowadays are filled with overproduced tracks. I think “Riptide” caught my attention for the very opposite reason. The simple ukulele melody is different from what is current now and I gravitated towards it. I honestly had no idea what the song meant or was about when I first heard it. But after a few listens, I’ve gathered my own interpretation. I love how James uses colorful descriptions of the meaning he’s trying to evoke: using Cowboys and his reference to Midnight Cowboy. The track is pure gold!

  4. I first heard ‘Riptide’ while I was studying abroad in Australia last year. I instantly became obsessed.

It’s impossible not to sing and dance to ‘Riptide.’ It’s such a happy song. I love it and all the memories associated with it.

  6. I think Riptide is a greay collaboration of different types of instruments including the uke. I think I love Riptide more finding out that VJ’s drummer played all the instruments. Its amazing how great of an artist VJ is as well as his band because many seem to forget the band. Riptide is an amazing song and makes you want to dance.

  7. Riptide is an amazing song that inspired many people to start playing the uke.

  9. I first heard Riptide at 3 in the morning at a friends house. We were discussing our favorite songs at the moment, the emotions they made us feel, the story that the videos convey. I had never heard of Vance Joy before that, but dear God, it’s been over a year and I still feel the same things and more. Everytime Riptide is played on my local radio stations, the pride and joy in my heart is more evident than ever. James deserves everything that he’s experienced so far, and more. So why do I love Riptide? It makes me feel at home. The lyrics mean so much more than what they may seem. Every aspect of Riptide and James’s career is absolutely breathtaking. Being able to experience that live today has changed my life and I pray I will have that opportunity again and again. Thank you.

  12. I saw Vance Joy perform at Stubbs in Austin Tx last October and when he played Riptide I literally got chills:) I’ve been following him since then and I always try to go to his concerts. I am glad he is coming back to Austin and I will be singing Riptide loud and clear again.the song is so contagious and I always sing it to my husband even though I probably shouldn’t be singing. I am a huge fan, I wished I could play ukulele. Maybe if I had a ukulele guide I would totally give it a try 🙂
