The Warp Records artist Gravenhurst, or Nick Talbot, has unexpectedly passed away at the age of 37. Warp issued a statement expressing their condolences, saying “We are shocked and saddened to share the news that Nick Talbot has passed away aged 37. An immensely talented singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer and journalist, he will be hugely missed. Nick’s family and friends request privacy at this difficult time”.

Although Gravenhurst was originally a solo project when it began in the 90's, it was eventually expanded to a full band where they played festivals like Waves Festival back in 2012 alongside the release of his album The Ghost in Daylight.

He was also a freelance journalist who contributed to Mike Paradinas and Lara-Rix Martin's Heterotic project. Michelle Hilborne, his manager, said “I am utterly devastated to confirm that Nick Talbot, also known under the performing name Gravenhurst, has passed away aged 37. The finest, most extraordinary and inspirational songwriter, singer and performer, and a remarkable producer and journalist, Nick’s work has deeply affected so many people all over the world. Outstandingly intelligent, compassionate, fascinating and witty, Nick was the dearest friend and his absence brings indescribable sorrow”.
