19th May | Colston Hall
Cambridge born one-man band, Nick Mulvey will finally be returning to Bristol this week, just under a year after the release of his second album. With his new funkier, and summery sound, Colston Hall will be the place to be on Saturday night for anybody who wants to dance. After a two-year break, in which Mulvey focused on family and home life, his latest album Wake Up Now has been described as a journey of self-discovery, as it was written in parallel with the birth of his first child. It’s evident that Mulvey has really let go, producing an album that really portrays the feeling of change and enlightenment which is bound to shine through in his live performance.
With years of experience from studying music and art in Havana, and six years playing hang for instrumental jazz band, Portico Quartet, it seems Mulvey has been perfectly educated to blend different music styles like no other contemporary artist. Pairing West-African inspired rhythms with an electronic funk which is impossible not to groove to, his sound has truly developed into something both diverse and unique.
With support from TT, vocalist and guitarist of American psychedelic-rockers, Warpaint, as she makes her solo debut too, this night is not one you’ll want to miss!
