A compound of hooky guitars, confessional lyrics and joyful pop, Aderyn’s music belongs on a ’90s movie soundtrack.
As a teenager, Aderyn grew tired of life on a sheep farm in the Brecon Beacons and left home at 16 to become a drummer in a grunge band. She soon realised that the singers were having all the fun, running around the stageand chatting to the crowd. Besides, all that drum gear is very heavy. So, Aderyn began to write, with one goal in mind: to make music that sounds like it belongs on a classic ’90s movie soundtrack. Blending sardonic, confessional lyrics with hooky guitars, Aderyn mixes together her indie and pop influences to create something that sounds like “Beabadoobee if she had a lot of caffeine” (as one fan put it).
Aderyn has been championed by BBC Radio Wales, and her single Scotty made the Radio Wales A List. She has been played by the likes of Huw Stephens and Bethan Elfyn. Two of Aderyn’s singles have been named ‘Fresh Faves’ by Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net. She has also been supported by blogs such as God is in the TV, who named her as a ‘sound of 2022’, and Get in Her Ears. Aderyn was selected for the Forte project in 2021. Forte is a Welsh artist development scheme backed by PRS.
