Hear multi-instrumentalist, composer, and singer Bill Ryder-Jones play from his latest album.

Ryder-Jones has had a career spanning 15 years – and counts musicians such as Courtney Barnett, Richard Hawley and Noel Gallagher as fans.

His talent stretches from a musical interpretation of Italo Calvino’s classic postmodernist novel <em>If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller</em> (2011's <em>If…</em>) to a top-ten <em>MOJO magazine</em> album of the year in 2016, West Kirby County Primary

Ryder-Jones weaves an overarching sense of authenticity, intimacy and wryness into this music, and consistently explores different songwriting styles while keeping a strong sense of self.

‘A magical, colossal talent… that spills melody and emotion’ The Guardian


Our Girl have been wowing a growing army of listeners ever since their debut gig supporting Honeyblood in September 2015. It was during that fledging performance that singer/guitarist Soph Nathan realised that, of the five bands she was then playing in, Our Girl was the perfect home for her redoubtable songwriting.

The product of a thriving Brighton scene that includes The Magic Gang, Dream Wife and Abattoir Blues, the band are capable of switching from stark tenderness to pulverising noise in a flash. Nathan's honest, personal lyrics float in a delicious array of sounds: rhythmic drum and guitar hooks make dynamic jumps to thick garage-rock riffs, then suddenly cut to beautiful, intimate moments of lone guitar and reverb-hugged vocals.
