With 70 million combined streams and the award for Best Unsigned Female Artist UK 2016, Nessi Gomes is a British Portuguese musician, composer and lyricist of rare invention and beauty.

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. Nessi’s debut album Diamonds & Demons ensued tales of darkness and light allowing 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. Nessi went on to tour the album, playing in 25 European countries in the last 6 years including major festivals in Europe.

Diamonds & Demons revealed 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. Gomes is a musician whose work obliquely references her travails and nods to Björk and Kate Bush, while being uniquely her own, with Portuguese inflections and intimations of hope and dread.
