Bill Ryder-Jones has announced a nine date co-headline UK tour this December with Saint Saviour (formerly of Groove Armada), including a show at the Tabernacle in London on December the 12th. The tour coincides with the release of the new album from Saint Saviour which Ryder-Jones has collaborated on and produced.
Ryder-Jones will also be performing a very special show in Manchester Cathedral as part of the Manchester Literature Festival on 9th October. Ryder-Jones will be joined by the Manchester Camerata in the first live performance of his landmark album If… Composed and recorded as a tribute to Italo Calvino’s playful, postmodern novel If On A Winter’s Night A Traveller, If… is a collection of cinematic songs that fuse exquisite strings and sublime orchestral movements with emotive, vocal led pieces.
Bill Ryder-Jones is currently working on the follow-up to last year’s A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart, for release in 2015.
