Nominated for the inaugural Welsh Music Prize in 2011, this album is enriched by the wonderful string arrangements of composer Seb Goldfinch performed by the Mavron string quartet. Gareth’s songs are further complemented by drums, bass and electric guitar and two stunning duets with Welsh folk sirens Cate Le Bon and Lisa Jên Brown. Following the release of Tethered for the storm Gareth was awarded Composer of the year in BBC Radio Cymru’s RAP awards 2011.
“…an exceptional album that harkens back to the 60′s folk revival.” – Alex Gallacher, Folk Radio UK
“Perfect, 10/10” – Hefin Jones, Y Selar
“it might seem fanciful to say that in arranger Seb Goldfinch Bonello has found the Robert Kirby to his Nick Drake – but time spent with the breathtaking dawn rapture of opening song Aubade makes it difficult to draw any other conclusion.” – Pete Paphides, Mojo****
