On The Vinyl Supper, Foy Vance chats songs and food with old friends and special guests. During each episode, Foy asks the person at his table what three courses they’d eat and what music they’d listen to at their last meal. And of course, they chew the fat: the catharsis of music, food and friendship. Foy’s pals talk about everything from pairing burgers with oysters to Japanese beef and redneck sushi. Conversations meander through global tours and global lockdown, losing loved ones and winning Grammys, Golden Globes & Emmys (none of which are Foy’s...yet). Come grab a seat at Foy’s table.

    Josh Groban

    On the 11th episode of The Vinyl Supper, Foy is joined by legend Josh Groban. The Grammy, Tony, and Emmy-nominated singer, songwriter, and actor opines with Foy on the city versus the country and the perils of overthinking. Josh makes a connection between his last appetizer and what he considers to be ‘the most bonkers Beach Boys song,’ and he talks with Foy about the pleasures and perils of living in Malibu. And, Josh makes it as the first guest to shout out the concept of breakfast for dinner.

    Groban has appeared in feature films like Crazy Stupid Love, The Hollers, Coffee Town, and Muppets Most Wanted, plus on television in The Office, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and The Crazy Ones. He paused his Great Big Radio City Show at Radio City Music Hall for quarantine, and he will resume there in April 2021. Groban remains an active arts education philanthropist and advocate as a member of Americans for the Arts Artists Committee and Groban’s Find Your Light Foundation helps enrich the lives of young people through arts, education, and cultural awareness.

    Bruce Cockburn

    Bruce Cockburn

    On a very special 10th episode, Foy gets to speak with one of his idols: Bruce Cockburn. Bruce’s first album came out fifty years ago, and here he is on episode 10 of The Vinyl Supper with Foy Vance. His eponymous album was released on April 7th 1970, including classic hits “Going to the Country” and “Musical Friends.” In the past fifty years, he’s released 34 albums and played around the world.

    Foy and Bruce bond over songwriting and what ‘the new normal’ has meant for them. Bruce calls back to an All-American favorite food, chicken and waffles, and rewinds over memories with All-American favorite musicians, Elvis and Little Richard. The two get serious with talks of the recent unrest in the states, and Bruce has some words of wisdom: “looters are not the creators of chaos.” They discuss the difference between condoning, condemning, and understanding.

    In his own words, Bruce says of the last fifty years of recording: “I can only shake my head and mutter a word of thanks for all of it. Even if I’d been a planner by nature, I doubt I could have predicted how things have gone. And they’re still going!” Going they are indeed: Bruce’s songs have been covered by Jimmy Buffet, kd Lang, Barenaked Ladies, Jerry Garcia, Judy Collins, Chet Atkins, and many more.

    Atticus

    Atticus

    We may not know Atticus’s face, but Foy himself got to see the anonymous poet and hear his stories—after a slight technical mishap that brings Foy to his own backyard. The anonymous New York Times bestselling author of Love Her Wild, The Dark Between Stars, and The Truth About Magic pioneered wearing a mask—he’s never shown his face in public. With Foy, he talks about the pitfalls of fame and what it’s like to wear a mask on a book tour. Dubbed ‘the worlds’ most tattooable poet,’ Atticus talks about the Beats and french fries from Chateau Marmont. Foy, for his part, gets a new favorite food, this time from China, and the two talk about poetic inspiration and the resurgence of interest in the written word. You too can drink with Atticus—his wine brand, the Lost Poet, is available on Winc.com

    Blake Mills

    Blake Mills

    Foy cruises onto episode 8 with his mate Blake Mills. The Grammy winning producer, composer, guitarist, and songwriter talks to Foy about the joy of tomatoes, straight off the vine. Blake doesn’t just talk food and music, he talks how they relate: ever heard of the concept of musical fast food? Don’t worry, Blake will let you in on the secret. In a turning of the dinner table, Blake has as many questions for Foy as Foy has for Blake. Did jingles change music? Do chefs cook better when they’re hungry? Foy shares a new last meal choice and the two bat back and forth from enchiladas to micheladas, Prince and pavlova.

    Check out Mills’s latest release, “Vanishing Twin,” off his new record Mutable Set. The video is a perfect depiction of isolation in this long and grueling quarantine. The whole album is a reminiscence on the dissonance of modern life, and features Aaron Embry on keys, Sam Gendel on saxophone, Rob Moose on strings, Abe Rounds on drums and Pino Palladino on bass.

    Mills’ past collaborators include Fiona Apple, Alabama Shakes, John Legend, Sara Barielles, Jay Z, and Phoebe Bridgers, but nothing is quite like this conversational collaboration between Mills and Foy.

    Courteney Cox

    In the sixth episode of The Vinyl Supper, Foy catches up with his old friend Courteney Cox. The two haven’t seen each other since quarantine began, so they have plenty to talk about, and it’s a pleasure to be let in on their conversation. We hear how the two have handled life in quarantine, from playing pool to dealing with COVID first hand.

    Courteney shares how quarantine has made her reevaluate her possessions, and shares her three favorite pastas—that she never eats otherwise. (Find out why!) We get the deets on her favorite project since Friends, and how her and Foy have dealt with the loss of routine that quarantine has entailed. The two share which celebs make them starstruck, and we finally get that recipe for redneck sushi!
