FROM Glastonbury to Green Man Festival, and now shortlisted for the Welsh Music Prize, musical duo Trwbador have bounced from success to success, enchanting music fans across Wales on their jour ney.
Friends Angharad van Rijswijk, from Llanllwni, and Owain Gwilym, from Llannon, have performed together since 2010, with April seeing the release of their eagerly awaited debut album.
The shortlist for the third annual Welsh Music Prize was revealed last week, featuring a variety of artists across a wide range of genres.
The prize is well-known for discovering hidden gems among new talent entering the music scene in Wales, with many artists hoping to repeat the triumph of previous winners Future Of The Left who won in 2012 with their album The Plot Against Common Sense. Competing for the title will be a hard task, but with the pure, angelic tones of Angharad combined with the mesmerising synth and electro-vibe of Owain on the guitar, the pair have high hopes. Unique The competition is competitive and full of talent, Owain said. It would mean the world to us if we won. The unique approach and exploration into different genres of music defines Trwbador's style, adding their own twists and developing avant garde har monies.
The Black Mountains of the Brecon Beacons set an idyllic backdrop for the intimate feel and awe inspiring set-list performed by the duo, with the festival attracting around 20,000, people making it the biggest festival in Wales.
Speaking to Owain, he described his mixed feelings of nerves and excitement. It was an amazing experience and opportunity to perform at Green Man. The crowds were great and we both really enjoyed.
