Nick Mulvey will open the show. Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen is a contemplative introvert, an adventurer, a communicator, a preservationist, a painter, and one of today’s most essential and unconventional vocalists and performers. His critically-acclaimed work encapsulates a lifestyle that has attracted a loyal following of like-minded fans. He has incorporated his love of music, the outdoors, and wine into his live tours – not only has he embarked on a venture developing wine, Dennen annually hosts a mountain town ski Lift Series in the winter that combines music, travel, and environmental activism. In the summer, his beach Vacationer Series supports local environmental preservation. Dennen lives in Northern California and travels extensively, from camping trips along the Sierra Nevada mountain range to climbing Everest and Kilimanjaro.
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.
