Nev Cottee first emerged in 2013 with debut album ‘Stations’. Produced by Mason Neely (Wilco/Edwyn Collins) it received high critical praise for its lo-fi psyche inspired songs.
Follow up 'Strange News From The Sun’ was released in 2015 on the UK based label Wonderfulsound. 'Arrangements swell and swirl with orchestral flourish as Nev channels Lee Hazlewood and Ennio Morricone to create his own unique sound.'
Inspired by the rain-drenched streets of Manchester and the sun-beaten canyons of America lies Nev third album ‘Broken Flowers’ released in 2017. A deeply cinematic, string-soaked album rich in atmosphere and brooding ambience that dwells somewhere in the mythical deserts of a Sergio Leone or Wim Wenders movie.
2019 sees the release of Nev’s fourth album ‘River’s Edge’. 'After all these years it feels like I finally know what I'm doing. For some reason I had this image of the River's Edge in my head - a promised land where I wanted to be.'
With nods to the late, great Scott Walker, Neil Young and Tom Waits, River's Edge looks to the mythical LA music scene but viewed through a very English lens. 'There is a pastoral quality to the songs on this album - they're all about the hidden places I love discovering in the English countryside. The songs are my way of working out what's going on in the world. Finding some sense in all the crazy madness. I hope people can come and join me in this special place and find some repose.
