Gwyneth Glyn

Welsh artist goes back to her roots, while spicing up her new album with some unexpected elements.

Gwyneth Glyn is a singer and performer hailing from Wales. Her music borrows from the ancestral local folk tradition, going for a memorable, lush and understated sonic palette that brings the staples of folk music to a modern audience, while retaining all of its warmth and traditional feel.

Her recent album, Tro, is a great showcase of Gwyneth’s many faces: she is not only a singer and songwriter, but also a poet and a playwright - these different art forms might seem quite different, but they are all deeply interrelated by an important common denominator binding them together.

Musicians, writers, actors, playwrights…they are all storytellers. With “Tro”, Gwyneth certainly set out to affirm and showcase their affinity for great storytelling, as every single song could be described as a story, eager to be told and shared, note for note.

This critically acclaimed performer already won some praise for her ability to find a common ground between various musical traditions of different derivation and origin.

As a collection of songs, Tro, stands out for its cohesion and balance, in spite of the many different influences and experiences that fueled the creative vision of this record. This is an album that takes Gwyneth back to her very own roots, tracing an enticing and exciting journey to the singer’s own musical (and personal) roots. Needless to say, this is arguably an album that has a strong personal meaning for the artist, and it definitely shows. Her performances are authentic and charismatic, as if her consciousness was deeply tied into the notes and words of each and every track featured on this record.

“Tro” is a portrait of an artist who deeply regards her own influences and her own background - yet who’s keen on setting the bar higher and branch out to feature various elements of different derivation.

This album is an excellent showcase of Gwyneth’s outstanding musicianship and accomplished vision, blurring the lines between traditional folk and contamination of various genres and influences - still done in a subtle way that gently creeps into the folk footprint. 5 Stars from Celtic Radio!
