Thomas Bartlett is an American pianist; his remarkable career has seen the musician, composer, and producer performing around the world both as Doveman and alongside The National, David Byrne, Nico Muhly, Anohni, and his own much-acclaimed supergroup, The Gloaming, to name but a few. As a producer, the Vermont-born Bartlett has collaborated with an equally impressive array of diverse but like-minded artists, including St. Vincent, Rhye, Yoko Ono, Mandy Patinkin, and Sufjan Stevens.
He released the debut album with his own name. Shelter is out now via Modern Recordings/BMG. It was written as a love letter to his partner, British actress and singer Ella Hunt, as well as to New York City itself, his home for 21 years. Bartlett recorded the album in his home over two days following the beginning of lockdown. Check the full streaming below.
