Ned’s first solo album 'Jokes and Trials’ came out in 2006, to enthusiastic reviews and comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Robert Wyatt. After tours with Joanna Newsom and Bill Callahan he returned with ‘Future Suture’, which was less confessional and more focused on storytelling. Collette began giving his backing musicians equal billing with 2009's ‘Over the Stones, Under the Stars’, with bassist Ben Bourke and drummer Joe Talia credited as Wirewalker. The album was a departure towards more sparse, rock-based arrangements. 2012 /2014 saw the release ‘2’ and ‘Networking In Purgatory’ and the development of deeper experimental work within their sound.
‘Old Chestnut’ is his sixth album, featuring his Wirewalker bandmates as well as contributions from Anthea Caddy and The Necks’ Chris Abrahams.
