Conrad Vingoe: Fopp Award for New Music Winner

Writing what has variously been described as melancholic, lo-fi and off-kilter pop, Conrad’s songs draw on his own experience and explore a range of emotions from desperation to great hope.

Influenced by classic singer songwriters such as Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell, and contemporary artists like Talk Talk and Sparklehorse, Conrad composes fresh and intelligent songs with a timeless relevance, delivered in his own unique style. Conrad has a growing fan base on the Brighton scene which is sure to increase with the exposure winning this award could bring. Conrad has already self-released the Highwire album last year, and is in the midst of recording a second album in Denmark.

Conrad says: I am very pleased to win the award and look forward to recording and putting a record out which people will be able to buy all over England. This will hopefully give me and the band the further exposure we need to take things to the next level, as well as enabling us to play at a great London venue and showcase material in front of industry.
