Paul Nash aka North Sea Navigator

Paul Nash moved to Bristol, UK in 2003 to join Warp-signing Gravenhurst and to form North Sea Navigator.

Leaving Gravenhurst to concentrate on his own project, Paul expanded North Sea Navigator to a live 3-piece with Charlotte Nicholls and Timothy X Atack (Angel Tech), subsequently self-releasing Alibis EP and ‘stunning debut album’ (Rock Sound)
Make the Blacklist.

Expanding to a live 4-piece with Neil Johnson (Angel Tech), NSN toured with Rose Kemp. Paul collaborated with Kemp on the track 'Edward' (Silber Records) and Johnson on NSN’s ‘timeless and fascinating’ (Rock Sound) second studio LP Among the Dead City (2009).

Currently in production is third studio LP, Lights in Darkest England, which was recorded as a 4-piece.

As a composer/sound designer for stage/film, Paul has written music for sleepdogs’ Dark Land Light House (a sci-fi horror for the stage) and an album of instrumental tracks for FELT Music.
