Nigel B Swifte plays a refreshing and relaxed earthy blend of singersongwriter/rock/pop. His music promises a journey into a landscape of steel-stringed sorrow that’s been soaked in sunshine and ginger wine drawing the listener into a soundtrack of acoustic guitars, pedal steel, cello and beautiful vocal harmony.
There is space within the music.
Nigel’s work is testament to the fact that music can indeed nourish the soul.
Pale yellow moon is a rich, yet simple album, one that records the tiny perfect moments of beauty and madness that mean so much, but are also often nearly impossible to share. Fans of great song writing, alt-country or contemporary ‘Finn-Folk’ rejoice the fact that one of Melbourne’s own produced such a beautiful recording.
“Pale Yellow Moon, an “impressive collection of sweet, gentle pop songs” (Jeff Jenkins, Inpress Magazine)
“Every note seems right, the vocal inflection hits the mark” (Lee Howard, The Herald Sun)
“Nigel’s unassuming style and husky vocals reflect the fragility and honesty which are characteristic of his songs, songs which lyrically capture vignettes of the human experience. A freeze frame on a break-up, or a moment of happiness” (Richard Mayer, National Geographic Channel)
