We’re excited to be working with Sweden’s De Montevert for the first time.

De-Montevert-Gullivers-Manchester

Ellinor Nilsson – aka De Montevert – is finally back with a new album that she treats as her debut, even though she released the acclaimed Friends & Enemies in 2012. It’s a moodier, darker and more dynamic De Montevert who presents herself now – a strong female artist in a very male-oriented arena.

The new album talks about love and betrayal into the finest detail, full of raw and honest compositions with the melodies and lyrics always in the centre of attention – because De Montevert has always had the ability to explain the most complicated emotions in a crystal clear way.

This took a while. After spending almost two years trying out different studios and producers, she finally found a home with producer Kalle Johansson in a small small studio on the outskirts of Umeå in northern Sweden. The album was then recorded over two weekends – including a lot of first takes, and no looking for singles, just making a coherent album.

De Montevert’s self-titled debut album is released on 2 December, preceded by the first single, Let’s not run away together.

Support comes from Manchester duo We Were Strangers, who have already played alongside Rozi Plain, Kathryn Williams, Lucy & The Caterpillar, Young War and Blue Rose Code. Their song I Believe has already chalked up over 10,000 plays.

This intimate acoustic show will take place in Gullivers’ Lounge – a tiny room at the rear of the pub.
