Record of the Month: Bill Ryder-Jones - lechyd Da

We’re starting 2024 off with an absolute peach. January’s Record of the Month is lechyd Da from Bill Ryder-Jones, absolutely one of our most wonderful voices.


“Iechyd Da" (a fond pre-drink good wish as our good mates at Spillers Records told us) is just an absolute treasure. It’s an album of such richness, with moments of whispered intimacy and joyous crescendo across a beautifully written set of songs. We don’t often say it, but it’s an instant classic.

Watch | “If Tomorrow Starts Without Me”



“At the start of what could be another turbulent year, it’s an uplifting reminder that there can be power in the darkness.” - The Guardian.


It’s not just that he can move between those tender moments and the fuller joys (kids choirs, re-contextualised disco samples!), it’s also how beautifully it all sits together, a sonically rounded experience and a proper journey.

Watch | “This Can't Go On”



“regardless of its intention, the result is impressive; Iechyd Da is an album that confirms Ryder-Jones as one of Britain’s finest songwriters.” - Uncut Magazine.
Deeply personal, but also relatable and honest. The production is brilliant, his voice is as fine as it's ever sounded and these are arguably his most diverse and fully formed songs. A fantastic album and a wonderful way to start this new year.
