b. 13 August 1959, Ebbw Vale, Wales. This singer-songwriter and guitarist found prominence alongside Eddi Audience in Fairground Appeal, writing the music group’s surprise #1 1 strike ‘Ideal’. Nevin produced his entrance in to the music business in the ultimate line-up of post-punk music group Jane Aire AS WELL AS THE Belvederes. Then began to set up himself like a songwriter, dealing with Sandie Shaw during her middle-80s comeback. Audience first associated with Nevin for the Small Organisation sampler recording The Small Composers, performing on two of his tunes. Together they created Fairground Appeal with Simon Edwards and Roy Dodds, and despite a resolutely unfashionable picture enjoyed among 1988’s biggest strikes using the jaunty ‘Ideal’. The music group split abruptly the next year, with Audience getting into a solo profession. Nevin caused Brian Kennedy in Sweetmouth, liberating the unsuccessful Goodbye To Songtown in 1991, before creating a productive profession like a songwriter with ex-Smiths vocalist Morrissey and Kirsty MacColl. In the middle-90s, Nevin relaunched himself like a singer-songwriter. A short recording program with strings, brass and support performers was scrapped towards some stripped-down songs. The materials was subsequently collected collectively on Insensitive Songwriter, released in 1999 on Nevin’s Raresong Recordings label. His following task was another impartial launch, The Mighty Dove. This recording featured elegant string plans by Fiachra Trench.
