Brigyn

BRIGYN are brothers Ynyr and Eurig Roberts from Snowdonia, Wales.

Since forming the musical movement in 2004, Brigyn have received plentiful airplay and TV appearances within Wales and the UK.

Their sound is a mixture of modern folk music, crafted rhythm loops and lush, expansive orchestral samples. The brothers admit to being influenced by various music ranging from Bjork's electronica, through Simon & Garfunkel's folky sound, to 20th century classical composers.

This unique blend of musical influences has allowed Brigyn to share a stage with artists ranging from world famous tenor Jose Carreras to The Incredible String Band. To date they have performed at The Green Man Festival, Llangollen International Eisteddfod, Small Nations Festival, Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, and also at popular Welsh language festivals such as Maes B and Gwyl y Faenol (Brynfest).

Following the success of the eponomously titled debut album in 2004, Brigyn released their second album 'Brigyn2' during Autumn 2005. Successful tours of San Francisco and Ireland followed in late 2005 and April 2006 respectively.

A collection of rare songs were released exclusively on iTunes and limited edition vinyl late in 2006 and an unique re-mix concept album ('Ailgylchu') was released in August 2007.

During the last months of 2007, Brigyn embarked on an epic 10-date tour of venues around Wales, that included an appearance at the Swn Festival. They also became the first ever group to perform at the new 'Milkwood Jam' venue in Swansea.

Their third studio album ('Brigyn3') was released in May 2008, and the promotional campaign for the album kicked-off with an exclusive live session in 'The Hub', London for Tom Robinson's show on BBC 6 Music.

Following an endless touring schedule throughout 2008 that included a return to playing at the Green Man Festival, Brigyn released the single 'Haleliwia' in November - a Welsh-language adaption of Leonard Cohen's global hit song, Hallelujah.

A Welsh-language single ('Yr Arth a'r Lloer' - The Bear and the Moon) was released end of 2009, and was given away as a free CD from Brigyn's website during December '09.

Brigyn will be launching their first ever English-language material in 2010. The single 'One Way Streets' was released on March 1st, and the new double A-side ('Home / I Need All The Friends I Can Get') will be released in December. Both singles will be available from the iTunes Music Store. Limited-edition CDs will also be available exclusively from Brigyn's online shop.
