Contessa | Radio Debut




Niyati and Gavin Libotte’s long-awaited originals project, Contessa, is finally here. They joined Nick Terry on Thursday Drive for the debut of three never-heard-before on radio tracks, Ballooning Over Paris, Green Grass and A Brighter Day. Niyati and Gavin reveal how they first met at Eastside Radio over 10 years ago, and how their whirlwind adventures, growing family and spiritual influences shaped their music. Listen to our interview below.

The album features collaborations with incredible musicians Jonathan Zwartz, James Hauptmann and Tim Avgenicos. To support the final production and release of Contessa, head over to Niyati and Gavin’s Kickstarter.
