Nessi Gomes

“Hauntingly atmospheric and lushly textured nods to Bjork & Kate Bush” The Guardian

Diamonds & Demons is the debut album by the British-Portuguese musician Nessi Gomes, a composer and lyricist of rare invention and beauty. Ensuing tales of darkness and light allow a deeper exploration of the human condition, psyche, collective fears and torments. Nessi has produced a record that is at once lustrous and shadowy, mysterious and magical, which she sings in a voice that is intimate and idiosyncratic.
Born on the tiny Island of Guernsey to a family of immigrants from Portugal, Gomes channels influences from both sides of her ethnicity, blending the essence of the traditional, ‘larger than life’ Fado folk music with progressive British inspiration. The album was recorded following a successful fundraising campaign in April 2015 during which more than $50,000 was raised. Nessi toured in the wake of the campaign, playing in 15 European countries from July to October 2015 to her devoted followers.
Grammy nominee Producer Bridgeman seasoned and slow-cooked the naked songs with an ambitious soundscape: cherry picking some superb musicians. Amongst them are the world-acclaimed classical violinist Viktoria Mullova, contemporary cellist Matthew Barley, rising jazz talent Misha Mullov-Abbado, indie whiz Cosmo Sheldrake, award-winning folk singer Sam Lee and more.
