Biography

English multi-instrumentalist, composer, singer-songwriter Bill Ryder-Jones (born 10 August 1983 in Warrington, Cheshire) began his music career as the lead guitarist for popular Hoylake-based psychedelic pop outfit the Coral, with whom he spent 12 years before embarking on a solo career.
Influenced by the likes of Ennio Morricone, Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, and the pastoral English folk of the late Nick Drake, Ryder-Jones provided the score for the 2009 short film Leave Taking, which was directed by longtime friend Laurence Easeman.

The compositions made up the bulk of his debut EP,
A Leave Taking Soundtrack,
and were followed by further forays into film soundtracks for
It’s Natural to Be Afraid (2010),
Bed (2011),
and Piggy (2012).
Ryder-Jones released his full-length debut for Domino, If…, which was based on Italo Calvino’s 1979 novel If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler, on November 14, 2011. The intimate and far more song-oriented A Bad Wind Blows in My Heart followed in 2013.
