Biography

Our music is about human connection, says Sarah Howells of Paper Aeroplanes. Not surprisingly the story of Paper Aeroplanes is as heartwarming and poignant as one of their songs. Vocalist Sarah Howells suffered a great personal loss, leading to her meeting guitarist Richard Llewellyn and their subsequent realisation that they were meant to make music together. Now they’re ready to reach their widest-ever audience with their much-anticipated third album ‘Little Letters’.

Sarah began life in Milford Haven, a small industrial town in Pembrokeshire, and Richard was bought up in Tresaith, a picturesque coastal village on Cardigan Bay. At the age of 13, Sarah began composing songs, realising quickly that music was the career path she would take. Later in her teens, her band, Jylt, were on the verge of national success when bass player, and best friend, Nia George was diagnosed with leukaemia, from which she tragically passed away at just 21.

Following a period of soul searching, Sarah felt compelled to continue writing and singing. She joined forces with Richard after he stood in for Nia in the Jylt line-up. In 2005, Rich and Sarah formed Halflight, who quickly caught the attention of the Welsh media.

The duo have released three albums, “The Day We Ran Into The Sea”, “We Are Ghosts,” and Little Letters as well as three EPs.
