H.B. Nielsen - From/Home [LP]
Cat. no: GGLP33
Release Date: 14 Oct 2022
The story of HB Nielsen is the story of the modern rambler, writing about himself and experiencing events through his years traveling around the world.All hailing from a teenager moving from Sweden to New York to play ice hockey
The music draws heavily on Americana and folk traditions, but also immerses itself in indie and post- rock elements with ambient delays, thick reverbs and layers of loopings in live performances. Nothing should have had such a big impact on HB Nielsen's music as the diversity of his traveling years. Musically, it's easy to draw to mind the countrymen Daniel Norgren, who equally independently and earthly conveys the folk blues of today, and fngerpicking folk- giant The Tallest Man On Earth. While stateside H.B picked up a guitar instead of the hockey stick. Being able to strum just a few chords, he started writing songs for fun while studying poetry and fction writing. A few years later, right before he was supposed to enroll at an MFA program, writing and playing music took a back seat as he picked up a tattoo machine and pursued a tattooing career while traveling the road. Those ideas were the foundation of what became the debut album From/Home. The real start of his musical journey.
