With all of our touring and festival performances cancelled for the foreseeable future, 9Bach are extremely grateful to the Arts Council of Wales for funding this exciting project.

The six month project will see us develop a new song writing partnership with Musical Director and Drummer Andy Gangadeen. Andy has worked with many artists including Massive Attack, Orbital, James Brown, Lisa Stansfield, to name a few, and is recognised as a pioneer of Hybrid Drumming, a technique using electronics to compliment acoustic drums.

Martin Hoyland, guitarist in 9Bach said,

“With this songwriting partnership we will be looking at adding an electronic angle to the distinctive 9Bach sound, so Andy seemed like the perfect match. We’re also looking forward to learning from Andy’s extensive work as a Musical Director with many successful and interesting artists who have pushed the boundaries with their work.”

This funding and project will be an exciting change of direction for 9Bach and is made possible through the Arts Council of Wales’s National Lottery Fund.

The National Lottery is playing a critical role in supporting people, projects and communities during these challenging times.
