about

Un noson, tra roedd y Delyn Gywrain Gymreig yn swatio yn ei gwely, yn breuddwydio am ddim ond cerdd dant, denwyd hi allan i gyffro’r nos i gwrdd â Americana, Canu Gwerin a’r Blues. Pwy heriodd y Delyn fach i ysgwyd llaw gyda’r fath griw? Georgia Ruth Williams. A’r canlyniad? Yr EP hudolus o swynol; ‘In Luna’.

Does dim dwywaith fod y ferch hon wedi denu cryn dipyn o sylw iddi ei hun; sesiwn yn Maida Valle ar gyfer ‘In Music We Trust’ a pherfformio yn Glastonbury, i enwi ond dau o’i llwyddiannau niferus. Llwyddodd ei EP cyntaf ‘Ocean’ i dynnu llu o gefnogwyr, a bydd ‘In Luna’ yn garreg filltir arall yn ei hanes.

Ceir pedair cân ar ‘In Luna’, a hwythau’n ymdrin â phob agwedd gymhleth o ‘golled’; boed o safbwynt personol neu gymeriadau ffuglennol. Mae’r ing yn llais bendigaid Georgia a hiraeth y delyn yn plethu gydag offerynnau megis yr organau Rhodes a’r Vibes i gyfleu holl emosiwn y thema. Mae’n sain cywrain, cynnes, di-amser.

Naws 'Astral Weeks' gan Van Morrisson, ' Moelyci' gan Steve Eaves a 'Once I Was' gan Tim Buckley oedd prif ddylanwad Georgia ar gyfer y caneuon hyn ond daw hithau a’i stamp benywaidd i gwrdd â hwy oll.
Stori gyfarwydd bellach yw clywed am allu’r cyfarwyddwr David Wrench, ac mae ei waith gofalus, a thamaid o lonyddwch stiwdio Bryn Derwen wedi treiddio i galon yr EP yma.

Gwell rhoi’r Delyn fach yn ôl yn ei gwely i adennill ei nerth cyn prysurdeb y flwyddyn newydd; bydd ‘In Luna’ yn denu dim ond llwyddiant, ac addewid am berfformiadau byw bendigedig dirifedi.

Growing up on the west Wales coastline, singer and harpist Georgia Ruth became accustomed to sea mists, strange sounds and the melancholy beauty of the Sandy Denny songs found in her mother’s record collection.

Quickly gathering support for her hybrid of folk and blues, Georgia has performed at Glastonbury, Swn Festival, Greenman Festival and at HMV’s Next Big Thing Festival. She has opened shows for artists such as Damien Jurado, Sweet Billy Pilgrim and Seth Lakeman. In 2011, her version of old Appalachian song, ‘Old Blue’, was chosen by Bethan Elfyn as ‘MPFree of the Day’ on the 6 Music Morning Show.

Now, aged 23, she presents a new and original collection of songs that recall those early inherited sounds to startling effect. Recorded and produced by David Wrench in the winter- stillness of Snowdonia’s Bryn Derwen Studios, the ‘In Luna’ EP features a wealth of sounds: vibraphones, pianos and organs combine with the harp to create a resonant and slow-burning warmth. Y Niwl’s Pete Richardson guests on drums, with Pete Walton on double bass and producer Wrench on vibraphones.

Georgia cites Van Morrisson’s 'Astral Weeks' and Tim Buckley’s ‘Once I Was’ as having provided inspiration during the recording process. The four beautifully crafted songs are inspired by loss, in its various forms: whether from a personal viewpoint, or through imagined characters and their stories. Throughout, Georgia’s haunting voice remains a constant. The result is delicate, timeless and transcendent.

‘In Luna’ truly reflects the creativity and talents of this exciting Welsh artist. Georgia Ruth is undoubtedly a name to watch out for in 2012.
