Talented and unique singer, songwriter, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Cosmo Sheldrake is on his way to Leeds for a gig on the back of the release of his debut album next month.
The 27-year-old from London is set to make a big impression with his first album, ‘The Much Much How How and I’, which is out next Friday on Transgressive Records.
It was written under the influence of a diverse group of musicians - ranging from The Beatles and The Kinks to Moondog and Stravinsky - and shaped by Sheldrake’s study of anthropology at the University of Sussex, his longstanding interest in ethnomusicology and a trip to Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Produced by Cosmo Sheldrake and Matthew Herbert (Bjork, Mica Levi, London Sinfonietta) and recorded at Soup Studios and Cosmo’s basement, the album will be available on limited edition vinyl, CD and download.
Cosmo, meanwhile, has shared the music video for current single ‘Come Along’ - the first to be taken from the album and after recently touring alongside Mr Jukes and Johnny Flynn, he has announced a short run of headline gigs, which will include a date at the Headrow House, in Leeds, next Saturday (April 7).
