Biography

The languorous songs of Bill Ryder-Jones are located at the point where introspection and redemption meet, although his lyrical themes suggest resolution is not always guaranteed. Ryder-Jones has mastered a distinct and personal mood music, executed with a studio deftness and an intimacy in his vocal delivery - the sound of someone sharing their experiences while offering the listener a space to be themselves.

Bill Ryder-Jones Iechyd Da

Album | 12th January 2024

Beautifully produced and rich in scope - Iechyd Da is Bill Ryder-Jones’ most ambitious record to date. At times joyous and grand, at others intimate and heartbreaking, the past few years spent producing other artists have provided that gentle nudge to expand into new territory, from kids choirs and tender strings to dramatically re-contextualised disco samples.

“It's been incredible making this,” he says. “Despite all the life stuff that's happened, it has brought me immense happiness. I've always railed against it when people ask if making a record is cathartic but I’d have to admit that this one really was.”
