Nick Mulvey


At the tender age of 26 Nick Mulvey is already a Mercury nominated musician as one of the founding members of jazz rioters the Portico Quartet where he played the Hang, a kind of steel drum that looks like a UFO and was invented in Switzerland of all places.

Now branching out on his own Nick’s solo output is a completely different proposition, although he retains a percussive edge to his acoustic, fingering picking guitar playing style, his music is informed by both his love of the likes of Dylan and Drake and his Cuban and African tutors who taught him while he studied for a degree in music at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London.

This is world music with a quintessentially English edge, perfectly embodied by his recent single Nitrous.
