original 5-piece group led by rhian williams (formerly of ust) on vocals and billy thompson (meic stevens, the amigos) on strings, electric violin and guitar.
the band also features dave edwards on guitar, dave ´taif´ ball (john martyn, lloyd cole) on fretless bass and steve roberts (noddy´s puncture, heavy quartet) on drums.
all original material and mainly in the welsh language, this band moves from gentle lullabys to full on rock.
this band is highly professional and after a very successful summer performing at sesiwn fawr and the eisteddfod combined with the release of our debut album - cyfnod cyntaf are set to go as far as is humanly possible.
with the unique voice and lyrics of co-founderco-songwriter rhian williams who achieved most acclaim during her time with her band ust in the 90s, this band also has something no other band has - a billy.
billy thompson is a classically trained professional improvising violinist and has been for around 10 years now. he has performed and recorded with many top artists including jools holland, salena jones, meic stevens, the amigos and perhaps most notably barbara thompson´s paraphernalia. 3 albums and subsequent tours of europe with this group including jon hiseman on drums has helped hone billy´s style into one truly unique. this is where dave ´taif´ ball on fretless bass is also from so he´s not so bad either!
add these musicians to original yet accessible singersongwriter based rock and we are talking a truly musical experience.
