SummaryNostalgia 77 main man Benedic Lamdin is hugely in demand as a producer and engineer, with work for a diverse array of artists as well as his own studio albums and side-projects (the most recent of which, Nostalgia 77 and the Monster, led to heavy BBC 6Music play and a live session for Cerys Matthews). His latest A-list assignment has been with Jamie Cullum, a relationship that has evolved from the latter's admiration and support for Nostalgia 77 on his BBC Radio 2 show. Having produced two tracks on 'Momentum' (Island), Cullum's current crossover LP featuring Roots Manuva, he has also recently recorded a complete album with the star, set for release in 2014.
Nostalgia 77's last studio album introduced him to a wider audience than ever, by dint of refreshing blues, folk and psychedelic influences and the decision to complete his band with the charismatic Josa Peit – the perfect interpreter of his songs - where he had previously featured various guests. Media support abounded, with radio play including Huey Morgan, Guy Garvey, Nemone, Gilles Peterson, The Selector, Gideon Coe, and Don Letts; national radio playlisting in the US, France and elsewhere, and major features including The Telegraph.
