Description

It has taken 3 years but finally I am happy to welcome you to my new album! The title ‘Y Daith’ has been taken from the song ‘Sneb Yn Gwybod Yr Ateb’ and the moving lyrics written by Idris Charles who has been a constant support throughout my career. I decided on this title as my life has been something of a journey in years since the release of ‘Ble’r Wyt Ti Nawr?’

With every journey there have been ups and downs, challenges and triumphs all of which have contributed to this album in some way and I hope that comes across in the songs.

Notes

It has taken 3 years but finally I am happy to welcome you to my new album! The title ‘Y Daith’ has been taken from the song ‘Sneb Yn Gwybod Yr Ateb’ and the moving lyrics written by Idris Charles who has been a constant support throughout my career. I decided on this title as my life has been something of a journey in years since the release of ‘Ble’r Wyt Ti Nawr?’

With every journey there have been ups and downs, challenges and triumphs all of which have contributed to this album in some way and I hope that comes across in the songs.

I have been honoured to work with some of the most fantastic musicians in the business on this album, from familiar names who I have worked with for years to new friends. The talent on this album comes from far and wide, from Wales, from the stages of London’s West End and even from Hollywood, California.

It was great to team up with Laura Sutton for the Christmas EP which was released in 2011 but is also included on this album. We have a great time performing together and an even better time rehearsing and travelling! We’ve been performing together since 2007 and we have never had a crossed word which in this industry is very rare, long may it continue.

Aside from the wonderful musicians I have enjoyed sharing the writing process with some of the people I admire most in the industry. As well as Idris Charles I have enjoyed co writing with Iona Myfr (Iona ac Andy) and Arfon Wyn. These are all people who I have admired for years and to write with them was a great experience. Their lyrics bring something very special to the album which I hope you will all enjoy.

The biggest thanks must go to my fantastic producer Russ Hayes. He is the most remarkably talented musician I have ever worked with. Every day in the studio is a delight and I am happy to be able to call him not only my producer but a great mate.

As usual, there are far too many people to thank individually, but I will try my best! My beautiful wife Llinos deserves massive thanks for putting up with me, she is my rock and nothing I do would be possible without her by my side with love and support.

Mum, Dad, Nain, Corrina and Rob for their continued guidance, love and friendship.

To all of my supporters, far and wide, you all mean so much to me and I am still amazed at how many of you still support me after so many years. Without you I would not be living my dream of making music. This album is for all of you.
