"Rhys Lloyd Morgan"

Self titled ‘music maker’ Rhys Lloyd Morgan hails from the southern wilds of Bridgend, where he writes and records thoroughly home-made songs. Such is the care and attention lavished on each that they are lent a realism too often dismissed as grit or earthiness. Morgan’s stand-out track, It’s Been Days Since I’ve Slept, sees interweaving finger-picked guitar sit underneath strained yet un-aged vocals, sounding like a zygotic James Yorkston who’s been at the whiskey. Lyrics belie a melancholy without solipsism, as befits its South Wales origins, and at times have the linguistic bite of a more considered Modest Mouse. LH - theMMP


After The Trip. October 2012



Rhys has moved around a lot over the last couple of years and has come back to Bridgend to write some songs and record an album before moving on again.
He started off playing 3 note bass guitar in a punk band that never truly chose a name. Next was a few years learning the acoustic guitar and dabbling in songwriting. This was all good and he decided with the help of some friends to create the band 'The Valleys'.
The Valleys was a special time where a lot of weird music was made in Rhys' living room. The band has been on a hiatus for the last couple of years, as every member lives hundreds of miles apart.
Rhys then changed his name to 'Roach Davies' and lived under that name for a while creating very strange music and doing strange things.
Recently Rhys started calling himself Rhys again and has been writing a lot and playing his first solo gigs. He plays a mean fingerpicked guitar that mixes in truly original lyrics that are often both dark and perplexingly uplifting at the same time. It's hard to know whether the song is supposed to be happy or sad. Or as he said, 'everything is usually both'.
