Neil Halstead has so far released two solo albums. 2002's 'Sleeping on Roads' on 4AD records and the more whimsical 'Oh Mighty Engine" released 2008 on Jack Johnson’s Brushfire label, with whom he has toured extensively. Both albums expand and draw influence from British and American folk music, new and old ; from Nick Drake , Bert Jaunch and Townes Van Zant to latter day songwriters like sufjan stevens, Will Oldham, Iron and Wine and Jeff tweedy.
In the early ‘90s at the tender age of seventeen Neil fronted cult shoegaze band Slowdive before moving onto the psych-country folk of Mojave 3 on 4AD records; a band who have released five albums to date with a few more to come, we hope.
Hard to find two bands with more critical accolades, and at the core of thease bands was Halstead and his songwriting.
