Pembrokeshire-born, London-based Bryde aka Sarah Howells is a woman with an electric guitar, playing fierce and fragile songs. Swaying from vulnerable to uncompromising within one verse and chorus, Bryde's music is honest and passionately authentic.
Bryde established her ethereal indie-rock sound early on, working with producers such as Jolyon Thomas ( Royal Blood) and Bill Ryder-Jones (Our Girl, Saint Saviour) Early radio support has reflected this coming from the likes of Huw Stephens on Radio 1, 6music, playlists on BBC Radio Wales and Amazing Radio and supported by Maz Tappuni on Radio X. 2017 reached new heights with packed shows at Live at Leeds and The Great Escape, sold out shows and her first shows in Europe.
Now in 2018 the debut album Like an Island Produced with Chris Sorem and mixed by Catherine J Marks (Big Moon, The Amazons) has been released to a host of glowing reviews, citing comparisons to Radiohead, The xx, Warpaint and Jeff Buckley.
