Wildcard (week 5): Nell Mescal – Homesick

Just 19 years old, Nell Mescal makes an impressive entrance into the entertainment world. Homesick is only her second official release, but a very promising one.

Hailing from Maynooth in Kildare, Ireland, the young emerging singer-songwriter has been singing all her life and has been performing in groups and choirs for as long as she can remember. During the pandemic, she decided to make music her career. She moved to North London, where sheโ€™s surrounded by other young creatives and kindred spirits.

Mescal wrote her charming new single with Jamie N Commons and Cameron Montgomery whilst in Los Angeles. However, it was inspired by her move from the cosy country side to the big city. She explains: โ€œIt’s about when I first moved to London from Ireland and really missed home, but also being determined to stick it out so it doesnโ€™t look like I failed at moving away. The lyrics give a bit of insight to how hard it is to move away at a young age and the loneliness that comes with it, while the music is upbeat and hopeful to show that you can do hard things and that you can make a home wherever you go if you give it time.”

Homesick by Nell Mescal is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. That means itโ€™ll be featured prominently at the top of the blog for a whole week.
