Compelling, highly original, haunting, dark, beguiling and exquisitely sung; a special band
9Bach are: Lisa Jen (vocals), Martin Hoyland (guitars and percussion), Ali Byworth (drums and percussion), Dan Swain (bass guitar), Esyllt Glyn Jones (harp, vocals), and Mirain Roberts (vocals).
Formed in 2005 thanks to a chance meeting between Lisa (also known for her work with Gruff Rhys ) and Martin, 9Bach made their name by taking traditional Welsh Folk songs and recasting them onto a spectral and haunting sound canvas. They have released two albums, ‘9Bach’ in 2009 and ‘Tincain’ in 2015, the latter has been nominated in the Best Album category at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
The result is an atmospheric, evocative and emotional hybrid of the folk tradition and contemporary influences. Building on a deepened, almost ambient sound-picture, the songs take you into the landscape and the emotions that it evokes.
Praise for 9Bach and their album Tincain:
“9Bach’s appeal is centered on singer Lisa Jen, whose cool exquisite vocals dominate the album.” **** The Guardian
“Easily the best Welsh language record since the Super Furry Animals’ Mwng.” **** Q Magazine
“File next to Super Furries’ Mwng as a landmark album for Welsh-language pop.” **** Mojo
