Nick Mulvey - Juramidam

TUESDAY BLUES

Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!


Nick Mulvey - Juramidam (2014)
 

I've been a fan of Nick Mulvey ever since I featured the fantastic 'fever to the form' back in Feb. With a style that has glimmers of Jose Gonzalez & Ben Howard, to do a like-for-like comparison would be a little unfair.  He must have been influenced by his time in Cuba or at the School of Oriental and African Studies because musically, he combines the latin finger-picking style with a percussive, rhythmic strumming style.

With a recently released solo debut, 'First Mind' and positive responses from the critics, I can see him going on to bigger things. Check him out at Glastonbury this weekend!

If you are a fan of Men with Beards, like the gentle stroking of a six-string, or just a miserable bugger, Subscribe to our Spotify playlist and read more Tuesday Blues here!

I saw Nick Mulvey a few times as part of the fabulous Portico Quartet and was initially unconvinced by his early singer/songwriter recordings, but he's really finding his feet as a solo artist now. This is great. I'll be checking out that LP.

I know what you mean about being unconvinced when I first heard about the singer/songwriter thing. However i've really taking to him. His performance on Jools Holland a few months back gave me goosebumps. Albeit, I'd had a few....
