Combining often unusual, yet emotionally resonant lyrics, distinctly raw vocals and an indie-pop sensibility, Covey is the creation of British multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Tom Freeman. Upon relocating to the US and landing in Boston for school in 2010, Covey was eventually conceived and managed to connect to listeners through Freeman’s own brand of folk-rock which drew inspiration from artists like Neutral Milk Hotel, The Smiths and Nick Drake. Covey’s upcoming album Some Cats Live, Some Cats Die was written after a series of hapless circumstances forced Freeman to leave his life in Boston behind and relocate to New York in pursuit of further success with Covey. The house outside the city in which the album was written – slightly distressing, isolated and yet strangely beautiful – has become the symbolic representation and centerpiece of the new project..
