Cosmo Sheldrake is a 25 year-old multi-instrumentalist musician, composer and producer from London, UK.
He regularly performs on banjo, loop station, keyboards, double bass, drums, penny whistle, sousaphone, accordion and many more. He is an inspirational singer and improviser, and much of his work is concerned with play, nonsense and the sonorous environment.
Cosmo creates music for film and theatre and tours internationally, recently performing solo and with several bands including Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit, Sylvan Esso and school friends Bombay Bicycle Club. He ran a community choir until 2013, sometimes teaches privately and in schools, and has facilitated music workshops and youth empowerment and nature awareness camps in both Europe and North America.
He performed at a TEDx event in 2013 (watch here) and recently returned from New York, where he studied vocal improvisation with Bobby Mcferrin. Based in London, he recently composed the music for a series of Beckett plays at the Young Vic, and provided music for children’s hospitals and hospices. He released his debut single ‘The Moss’ via Transgressive Records in April 2014.
