Der aus Oxford stammende Künstler Nick Mulvey hat Musik im Blut. Als Sohn einer Opernsängerin und Enkel einer Pianistin konnte der Apfel ja nicht allzu weit vom Stamm fallen. Als Jugendlicher lernt Mulvey das Gitarrespielen, ein paar Jahre später schreibt er sich für das Studium im Fach Musikethnologie an einer Londoner Universität ein. Während dieser Zeit gründet er mit drei Kommilitonen die Jazz-Gruppe Portico Quartet, er selbst spielt ein Percussion-Instrument. Die Gruppe ist sehr erfolgreich, wird neben der Band Radiohead sogar für den Mercury Music Prize nominiert und dennoch, Mulvey entscheidet sich im Jahre 2011 nach einer Phase der Ruhelosigkeit, fortan seinen eigenen Weg gehen zu wollen. Er begibt sich zunächst auf Reisen, lässt sich von verschiedenen Kulturen und Musikrichtungen inspirieren und findet so seinen eigenen Stil. Nick Mulveys Debüt-Album First Mind aus dem Jahre 2014 zeichnet sich durch folkloristische Klänge aus, die vor allem dem Einsatz einer Ukulele geschuldet sind und eine besondere Leichtigkeit ausdrücken. Auch das neu erschienene Album Wake Up Now verfolgt diese Spur und zeigt sich gewohnt spritzig-lebendig, mit Akustikklängen und schönen Texten. Nicht zu überhören auf beiden Werken ein exotischer Touch, welchen sich der Künstler zweifellos auf seinen Reisen angeeignet hat. Wir sind der Meinung: Ein Werk, welches gute Laune macht und im Leisen von fernen Ländern erzählt. © SL/Qobuz

Hi-Res
The debut album from former Portico Quartet percussionist and Hang player Nick Mulvey is a worldly affair that gives the impression of a musician far more established and further on in his career than the Cambridge-born artist. This may be due to his involvement in the Mercury-nominated Portico Quartet, or the trickle of releases that have appeared since his nomination to the BBC Sound of 2014 long list, but it is most likely down to the Ethnomusicology degree he obtained at the School of Oriental and African Studies, and the years he spent immersing himself in the musical cultures of Brazil, Cuba, and Morocco. This wealth of experience and breadth of learning is transitioned here into dense and playful guitar work and absorbing, innovative rhythms. What is obvious throughout First Mind is the accessible nature of Mulvey's folk-influenced style. There are moments that feel José Gonzalez-esque, and others that aren't a million miles from the chart-topping sound of Ben Howard, while his use of Olive's "You're Not Alone" chorus on "Nitrous" is an indicator of the pop sensibilities that run alongside his cultured guitar work. Some tracks here have been collected from previously released EPs and singles, and the likes of "April," "Venus," and "Fever to the Form" are all accounted for, but slot in seamlessly next to his newer material, while the version of "Juramidam" takes on a throbbing, bluesy sound. In his most expressive moments, Mulvey channels the intricate fretwork of Nick Drake, while the minimal arrangements that dominate the album swell to a brief moment of euphoria as "Meet Me There" slowly rises to a violin-led climax. The folk singer/songwriter side of Mulvey is the one that is shown for most of the record, while his extensive influences flit in and out of each song, leaving their mark in the percussion, melody, and arrangement, but never taking center stage in his impressive repertoire. © Scott Kerr /TiVo

Hi-Res
Wake Up Now is the second solo album by former Portico Quartet percussionist Nick Mulvey, a singer, songwriter, and (primarily) guitarist with a degree in ethnomusicology. The follow-up to his Mercury Prize-nominated debut, First Mind, it likewise showcases an array of world music influences, particularly in terms of rhythm, but listeners will also notice a less intimate, more exuberant presentation. The latter has a lot to do with the fact that it was recorded live in the studio as a band with producer Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, Ray LaMontagne). Following those sessions, tracks were passed to First Mind producer Dan Carey for finishing electronic touches, resulting in a record that seems both impulsive and impeccable at once. Not only an album steeped in international styles, but in global events, Wake Up Now addresses topics including the refugee crisis and the impact of fracking. Lead single "Myela," for instance, was inspired by first-hand accounts of journeys taken by refugees. Co-written by Mulvey and backing bandmember Federico Bruno, it draws on African rhythms, pop, and group singing through verses about a young Sudanese woman in Sicily and about making it from Syria to Lebanon. (The song's video was made by Majid Adin, an Iranian animator who found refuge in the U.K.) It's not the only song with multiple guest vocalists, and Mulvey's warm, conversational tone is sometimes double-tracked in addition to being reinforced or harmonized by others. All of the above can be heard on "Remembering" alongside vibrant melodic percussion and textured plucked and strummed string instruments. Even with some serious subject matter and a spare, wistful closing track, the album's bustling arrangements keep things spirited and sometimes outright celebratory. While he found success with the low-key, folkier vibe of First Mind, Mulvey did well to heed the advice of none other than Brian Eno, who in pre-recording meetings encouraged him to share some of the load with others. The outcome sounds like a skilled musician hitting his stride. © Marcy Donelson /TiVo
