At a time of great uncertainty, it helps to  surround  yourself  with those things you trust, and so marks the timely return of the reliably brilliant  Nick Mulvey. His standout  debut  album, First Mind, in 2015 was the introduction of an artist who shirked the conventional and side-stepped the expected. It was a record of opposing shades, all leftfield rhythms, and harnessing an exquisitely natural guitarist doing extraordinary things, painting unique colours across a very moreish collection of songs. It was quite peerless, and translated to the stage alongside fine collection of talented players that formed his band. 

Nick's return with the first fruits of his new album sessions has brought with it his own outlook on a world that can't decide which direction it's going, or quite what to do with itself. We're all hastily trying to find our spot within these times, and Nick is no exception, but if clarity is part­ resolved by a call to arms, perhaps it's time to make that call. Unconditional, the first new music from Mulvey in over two years, is a multi-layered, groove-based tune that doesn't stray too far from First Mind, but far enough to sound fresh, unique and exciting. It's the work of a special British talent ready for the next phase, whatever that phase will be. Join him.

    Singer-Songwriter

    Nick Mulvey is very pleased to follow his recent triumphant headline UK tour with details of another for later this year.

    Having sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall earlier this year performing as a trio, Nick will head out solo in September on an initial 18-date run at much more intimate spaces across the UK and Ireland, including towns that Nick has never previously performed at. These shows bring the evolution of Nick’s touring of his second album, Wake Up Now, on a full circle journey from five-piece, to trio, and now right back to just Nick and his guitar.

    The tour commences in Belfast on the 19th September, before hitting Dublin and Cork. Nick then crosses the Irish Sea, arriving in Cambridge (a hometown show), and playing across the country right through to Nottingham on the 14th October. The dates include a night at London’s newly refurbished Hackney Arts Centre on the 26th September. The run also takes in the likes of Cork, Kendal, Pocklington and Hebden Bridge.

    Ahead of the new tour, Nick takes in a series of European festivals and a handful of US dates throughout the Summer, including slots at Lollapalooza in Chicago and Outside Lands in San Francisco.

    Nick Mulvey’s second album, Wake Up Now, is out now through Fiction Records.

    Ida Mae

    Americana

    Ida Mae’s magic lies in the sensuous dovetailing of two voices and the intimacy of their songs. Their chemistry on stage isn’t just a dramatic pose and is a truly captivating sight to behold. Chris’ vocals are reminiscent of a Face’s era Rod Stewart or Steve Marriott,
while Stephanie combines the delicacy of Patty Griffin with the effortless rock-chic of Alison Mosshart. Singing together, the couple have an unusual ‘which-is- which’ dynamic.
