Nick Mulvey

Langue disponible : anglais
British songwriter Nick Mulvey already had a wealth of musical knowledge before coming to the fore with his Mercury Prize nominated 2014 solo debut, First Mind. His formal music education in Havana, Cuba and London and his membership in experimental jazz ensemble Portico Quartet served him well as he developed his own disctinctive solo palette over subsequent releases like 2017's Wake Up Now and 2022's mystical New Mythology. Mulvey's first musical interactions were with piano and drums before he acquired a guitar in Southern Spain at the age of 18. He moved to Cuba a year later, and returned to the U.K. to study ethnomusicology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, submerging himself in different styles of music but specializing in West and Central African in particular. It was during this time that Mulvey met his Portico Quartet bandmates in 2005, where he played the Hang. After a successful stint with the outfit -- which included a Mercury Prize nomination in 2008, 150 shows worldwide, and signing to Peter Gabriel's Real World Records -- Mulvey decided it was time to leave in 2011 and return to his first inspiration, the guitar. With an abundance of genres at his fingertips, Mulvey set about creating a sound that was both striking and unique, intertwining influences of great musicians such as Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, and Tom Waits with a variety of African styles, including guitarist Kawele. This resulted in the sweet melodies and rhythmic strumming patterns that can be heard on his Fever to the Form EP, which was produced by Dan Carey (Steve Mason, Bat for Lashes) and released in 2013. In the meantime, he supported the likes of Willy Mason, Lianne La Havas, and Laura Marling on tour. Mulvey's full-length debut, First Mind, arrived in 2014 via Universal's Fiction and Harvest Records. It became a Top Ten album in the U.K. as well as a Mercury Prize nominee. His second LP was recorded live in the studio with his band and producer Ethan Johns before being passed along to Carey for the finishing electronic touches. Titled Wake Up Now, it was released in mid-2017 and addressed topics including the refugee crisis. Dancing for the Answers, a four-track EP, followed in 2018. After the 2019 single "Moment of Surrender," Mulvey offered yet another EP in 2020's tranquil Begin Again. Finally, in 2022, the singer delivered his third album, the soulful, mystically-inclined New Mythology. Recorded in Paris by producer Renaud Letang, New Mythology was concerned with vulnerability in relation to the daily human experience.
