Biography

On a beach in Honduras in the summer of 2010, Nick Mulvey experienced his sink or swim moment. Surrounded by strangers, clutching an acoustic guitar, having just told the other members of his band, Portico Quartet, that he needed this two week holiday to decide whether he was permanently leaving them, he started to sing.

“I knew that I’d probably never see these people again ... Read more in Amazon's Nick Mulvey Store

Nick Mulvey has been one of the undisputed breakthrough artists of 2014. With his début album, “First Mind” being nominated for the Mercury Prize and most of his many tour dates selling out, there haven't been many indie artists who have enjoyed as successful a year as him. Given the praise for the album, I decided to check it out for myself and was pleased to discover that the acclaim is well deserved, as “First Mind” is an intriguing, beguiling album which has been on heavy rotation on my stereo since I bought it back in August. Full of looping rhythms and rotating musical themes, many of the tracks have the common trait of being able to send the listener into an involved, almost trance-like state listening to them. Mulvey has an ear for an interesting rhythm, having studied music in Cuba and been part of the Portico Quartet, a group described as 'electronica meets future-jazz', and accentuating the beat is an important characteristic of his music, even when strumming or picking out a riff or melody on his guitar.

Although it may take the listener a few plays of the album to really get to grips with everything Mulvey is trying to communicate with this work, it soon becomes clear that there isn't a bad song on it. Indeed, there are more than a handful of thoroughly superb songs on “First Mind”. “Fever To The Form”, for example, is a corker, starting with a simple strummed guitar chord sequence, adding vocals and then slowly, instrument-by-instrument, becomes a powerful piece of music, yet still retains a pleasing mellow characteristic.

Mulvey's songwriting ability is phenomenal. Beautiful, intricate guitar work. Great voice. And he's not bad at humming either! This is a truly classy debut and very accessible in a low key, folksy, singer-songwriter style. Get it now - you'll be playing it all summer and probably far beyond. Catch him live if you can.

Ok so every albumn has a couple of songs one does not, ummm agree with completely. Well this is no exceptions, however, saying that Nick Mulvey has a great voice, the sounds are fantastic (if you like guitar etc) and this is very listenable to album, I have my favourites and love travelling in the car with this ...quite loud in fact.
So yes, hats off to Mr Mulvey as a great albumn, loved it and loved the fact that I just caught him singing on the TV from Glastonbury, just so pleased to have heard him live so to speak.
Beautiful compliations and well, just good for the soul, ears and heart really.

:o) xx

Former Jazz musician, Nick Mulvey is an Alt/Folk singer/songwriter from Cambridge England who was short listed by the BBC for "the sound of 2014".
He has studied a variety of cultural music and this is evident in his debut full length release "First Mind".
It's an album full of rhythmic acoustic guitar, gentle percussive beats and intelligent lyrics. A highly impressive first LP.

I must admit that I really like "First Mind" by Nick Mulvey. For a long time I was quite unsure if I should listen to and consequently buy this album, but have seen its price reduced to £6.99 at my local HMV store and finally bought it yesterday! What a great music adventure! The songs included in the standard version can be simply described as alternative and independent tunes, but they're for sure not boring! What you hear is the voice of 100% mature guy who knows what he's looking for in music and is able to take you high, if you only let him to do so :) Clever, intimate and magic lyrics, sexy vibes... Highly recommended album!

Loved it! Beautifully engrossing songs that combine global sounds with British sentiments of nature, love and relationships. Clever guitar skills, catchy tunes all topped off with his clear vocals.

Bought due to a mercury nomination, I was actually considering this because I had liked the (also mercury nominated) portico quartet... But this is very different. Still very good though, interesting folkish style, and tunes you will instantly memorise. His voice I find really nice to listen to - I think this is a great album

Very nice debut. Very chilled, beautiful guitar playing and a voice that draws you in. Purchased on a whim after hearing Cucurucu and Meet Me There on Radio 1 and don't regret it one bit.

Whole album is great but April, Juramidam and I Don't Want To Go Home are highlights.

Highly recommended
