We are over the moon to have Nessi back in Belgium!  Last year she enchanted us with 2 concerts that sold out in no time and we totally understand everyone's enthousiasme.   Her music is mesmerising, it cuts through flesh and bone, brings you closer to your heart, embracing light and darkness.

Her acclaimed debut album Diamonds & Demons was released in October 2016 and received lots of media attention and radio support in Europe and the UK. Since she played in 30 countries including major festivals and stages. Parallel she created the ever-growing Vocal Odyssey workshops and retreats that encourage participants to meet with the spirit of their voice.

About Nessi Gomes

Born on the tiny Island of Guernsey to a Portuguese family, Gomes channels influences from both sides of her ethnicity, blending the essence of the traditional, emotional and ‘larger than life’ Fado folk music with British progressive modern inspiration.

Diamonds & Demons is the debut album by 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 and her producer Duncan Bridgeman ('1 Giant Leap’) together dug an uncharted tunnel into the artist's turbulent heart and soul. 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 25 European countries in the last 6 years including major festivals in Europe.

Het debut album reveals an authentic and heartfelt search for light, depth, hope and truth; an artistic quest for love and trust. A series of intricately detailed, hauntingly atmospheric and lushly textured Avant-ballads. Here is a musician whose work obliquely references her travails and nods to Björk and Kate Bush but is uniquely her own, with Portuguese inflexions and intimations of hope and dread.

 

Nessi Gomes is a musician, and group facilitator with a BA (Hons) in Creative Expressive Therapies in Music (2007), and a certified Holistic Voice Therapist with The British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST) in Group Voice Therapy (2014).




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

Paul Lester – The Guardian

“A record that is at once lustrous and shadowy, mysterious and magical, an exercise in shaping beauty out of despair.”

Alex Goddard – Music Week

“Stunning debut from a composer and lyricist of rare invention and beauty”
