Nick Malcolm releases his 3rd album with his 2010 core Quartet of Alexander Hawkins, Olie Brice and Ric Yarborough on 1st February 2019. The result of an extended musical process and journey, Real Isn’t Real materialises from recording studio in 2015, returning to the studio in 2017, and 2018 electronic overlays .

Real Isn’t Real reveals, after only a few notes, the identity of each of these distinct players, and their ability to play with time and freedom, structure and improvisation. On ambitious compositional and lyric duty (apart from 'Grass Remembers'; words by W.B. Yeats), Nick has written a song to highlight the particular vocal and musical qualities of each of the featured vocalists, Emily, Marie, Josienne and Lauren – who he has worked closely with over the years in varying contexts, of jazz, soul, folk and improvisation respectively.

Five Spiral pieces surround the four songs, deconstructing the musical material of the preceding through improvisation. The album finishes with Spiral V – Dissolve, a choral epilogue that dissolves into an electronic montage.
Real Isn’t Real tracks Nick’s musical interests of recent years, and points his way ahead.
