Following Bill Ryder-Jones' first performance at Manchester's Castle Hotel last night, he can announce further live dates, including a show at the Lexington in London on May 8th.
'A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart' marries Ryder-Jones masterful capacities as arranger and composer with his first firm steps as a singer songwriter. It's an album of capital-S songs that will more than sate the appetite of those that appreciate his knack for heart swelling melody and painterly detail.
The album was recorded in Ryder-Jones' old bedroom in the upstairs of his mother's house in Liverpool. Two friends from local band By The Sea made up the backing band for the recordings, which were then produced and mixed together with James Ford. The album is released on 8th April 2013.
Full UK dates:
March 21st - Liverpool, Camp & Furnace
May 8th - London, The Lexington
Aug 16th to 18th - Beacons Festival
Sept 13th - 15th Festival Number 6
