Nick Mulvey’s Concert
8th January 2015,
19.00 at Yantra Hall
With a background in African, Cuban & Spanish music, London-based Nick Mulvey has carved a unique and original niche as a singer-songwriter. Wispy melodies and vocals reminiscent of Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon are accented by beautifully syncopated guitar strumming in Nick’s songs that can take listeners to a cool Havana night.
The genre-bending lines throughout Nick’s career have been met with critical and commercial success, both as a jazz ensemblist and his current solo work. Nick’s previous musical outfit, Portico Quartet, with whom he played hang and other percussion instruments, was nominated for a coveted Mercury Prize in 2008. His 2014 debut solo studio album, First Mind, peaked on the UK Billboard charts at #10. While Nick’s singing and guitar playing come to the fore in recent releases, the lush backdrop of synth, strings and horns combine for a delightfully rich listening experience.
Entrance fee is 300 baht for Samui residents and vacationers. All proceeds will go toward Kamalaya’s Charity Fund.”
