"Lisa Jên’s ethereal voice still swoops beguilingly over Martin Hoyland’s expansive arrangements, fusing harps, dulcimers and guitars with dub beats, loops and pounding bass… ‘Yr Olaf’ sounds like Kate Bush conducting a Druidic ceremony." ~ UNCUT
9Bach formed in 2005 thanks to a chance meeting between Welsh singer-songwriter Lisa Jên and English guitarist Martin Hoyland. They were soon joined by Ali Byworth (drums and percussion), Dan Swain (bass guitar), Esyllt Glyn Jones (harp, vocals), and Mirain Roberts (vocals). With their unmistakable sound of Welsh language vocals shimmering alongside swamp guitar, harp, rhythm section and a subtle use of technology, 9Bach have been widely credited with giving a new voice to Welsh song, and taking that song worldwide.
