Everything Gruff Rhys touches, from Super Furry Animals, to Neon Neon and his own solo work, is dappled by his dazzling pop genius. Thankfully this creativity shows no signs of slowing down. As a solo artist he has consistently shown himself to be a highly talented, enigmatic composer who finds new and surprising ways to tell stories.
Whether he’s building a hotel out of complimentary hotel toiletry bottles or travelling across America to discover a long-lost relative and a lost language, Rhys has always created albums on original subjects that are full of wit and indelible tunes.
He is a joy to watch live too. Last year he toured to play his soundtrack to the Dylan Thomas film Set Fire To The Stars and it was a reminder that his shows are ones to savour and treasure; bubbling over with warmth, wit and ingenuity.
