Bryde grew up in the Welsh seaside town of Milford Haven, and plunged straight into the world of music the moment she hit double-digits. Being from a fairly sleepy town, Bryde – or Sarah Howells, to her friends – made their own musical entertainment growing up, out of necessity. Bryde’s debut album ‘Like An Island’ was written in 2018 amid a break-up, it was a record about emancipation and learning to exist alone again. The album was nominated for the Welsh Music Prize. The musician is also active on the live circuit, playing alongside the likes of Fatherson, Rufus Wainwright, The Joy Formidable, and joining the bill at Dot to Dot, Green Man, Sen, Live At Leeds, The Great Escape, Latitude, Boardmasters, and 2000 Trees. Bryde is a girl and an electric guitar, playing fierce, fragile and euphoric songs. Swaying from vulnerable to glorious within one verse and chorus, Bryde’s music is honest and authentic.
