Welsh songstress Bryde will bring her powerful pop song craft to Cardiff in April.
Hailed as “sensational” by The Sunday Times for her “Feral Guitar [and] Torn-from-the-chest lyrics”, Bryde is readying the release of her debut album ‘Like an Island’. Recorded between LA and London, the album will be released on her own independent and female-centric label Seahorse Music.
After setting up her label Seahorse Music to publish records by like-minded women and help make them more visible in a male-dominated industry, Bryde finished up her debut LP Like An Island flitting between London and LA.
For the Wales-born songwriter, it’s not just the technical precision of her lyrics that resonate with a widening fan base, it’s also her vocal delivery. On her latest song To Be Brave, Bryde’s voice carries us beyond the imprecision of words into feelings we all know but can’t delineate.
Bryde says of the song “To Be Brave was written as kind of a soft squeeze of the hand to many friends who have, like me, been through many a dark period and put on a brave face and just got on with it. It’s a comment about how we all live out certain episodes of our lives in such a public setting these days that I feel we almost edit them to appear flawless, nothing but smiles.”.
Like An Island comes out on Bryde’s own label Seahorse Music on April 13th and is available to pre-order. Support in the form of Women Make Music fund from PRS has been awarded to assist its release.
