They don’t come more atypical or eclectic than Cosmo Sheldrake, folks. As one of the most unique and indefinable artists of the decade, the London native has established himself as one of the most talented and quirky singer / songwriter / producer / composers in the business. Coming from a long line of accomplished musicians, composers, and avant-garde creators, Cosmo has transformed his innate talent into a wicked mixture of electric sounds and one-of-a-kind beats.
At 27-years-old, the multi-instrumental artist is getting set to release his debut album, The Much Much How How And I (yes, that’s actually the name of the album). In true Cosmo fashion, listening to the album is a vibrant, enchanting, and lucid experience unmatched by other artists of today’s music industry.
Cosmo finds that during the creative process, he is more comfortable going headfirst into the unconventional, always pushing his own limits and boundaries to creating something imaginative and transformative. When he’s not busy recording for his debut album, he is adding to his diverse catalog of creations, which includes scores, soundtracks, Ted Talks, and a plethora of intelligently infectious pop songs. Oh, and did we mention he plays about 30 instruments? Some of his favorites are jazz and classical piano, banjo, drums, didgeridoo, and sousaphone.
He also has a bit of a reputation among fans and industry artists as the clever and whimsical song writer who manages to combine bold topics with transcendent sounds. As one of the brightest emerging talents, his humble attitude is often reflected in his own songs. On his hit single, The Moss, many are drawn to the simplicity of his lyrics like, “Well, we can all learn things, both many and a-few / From that old hunched-up woman who lived inside a shoe / Or the girl that sang by day and by night she ate tear soup / Or the man who drank too much and he got the brewers’ droop”.
Along with his new album, Cosmo is set to tour throughout Europe this spring, and is a favorite slot at some of the biggest upcoming festivals. Be sure to catch Cosmo on the road this year, and head over to SoundCloud to catch up on all your favorite Cosmo beats!
