Bill Ryder-Jones on Sunday 17th February 2019

English multi-instrumentalist/composer/singer/songwriter Bill Ryder-Jones began his music career as the lead guitarist for popular Hoylake-based psychedelic pop outfit the Coral, with whom he spent 12 years before embarking on a solo career. Influenced by the likes of Ennio Morricone, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, and the pastoral English folk of the late Nick Drake, Ryder-Jones provided the score for the 2009 short film Leave Taking, which was directed by longtime friend Laurence Easeman. The compositions made up the bulk of his debut EP, A Leave Taking Soundtrack, and were followed by further forays into film soundtracks for It’s Natural to Be Afraid (2010), Bed (2011), and Piggy (2012). Ryder-Jones released his full-length debut for Domino, If..., which was based on Italo Calvino's 1979 novel If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler, on November 14, 2011. The intimate and far more song-oriented A Bad Wind Blows in My Heart followed in 2013. Moving from the more minimalist folk style of his previous album, Ryder-Jones sought a heavier, more band-oriented sound for his follow-up. Written in his childhood bedroom at his mother's home and recorded in Liverpool, West Kirby County Primary is a deeply affecting album that delves into the singer's personal life.
