BRIGYN are brothers Ynyr and Eurig Roberts from Snowdonia, Wales.

Since the release of their first album in 2004, their melodic music has received plentiful airplay on radio and television within Wales and worldwide.

Their sound is a mixture of modern folk music, crafted rhythm loops and lush, expansive orchestral samples. The brothers admit to being influenced by various music ranging from Bjork's electronica, through Simon & Garfunkel's folky sound, to 20th century classical composers.

This unique blend of musical influences has enabled Brigyn to share a stage with artists ranging from world famous tenor Jose Carreras to The Incredible String Band. They have performed at some of the UK’s leading folk festivals, including The Green Man Festival, Llangollen International Eisteddfod, Small Nations Festival, and Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, and Glasgow’s Celtic Connections.

Following the success of the eponomously titled debut album in 2004, Brigyn launched their second album 'Brigyn2' from inside a tree during October 2005. Successful tours of San Francisco and Ireland followed in late 2005 and April 2006 respectively.

A collection of rare songs were released exclusively on iTunes and limited edition 7" vinyl late in 2006, and an unique re-mix concept album ('Ailgylchu' - Recycle) was released in August 2007.

During the last months of 2007, Brigyn embarked on a 10-date tour of venues around Wales, that included a headlining appearance at the inaugural Swn Festival.

Their third studio album ('Brigyn3') was released in May 2008, and the promotional campaign for the album kicked-off with an exclusive live session in 'The Hub', London for Tom Robinson's show on BBC 6 Music.

Following an endless touring schedule throughout 2008 that included a return to playing at the Green Man Festival, Brigyn were given exclusive rights to release their Welsh-language adaption of Leonard Cohen's global hit song, Hallelujah. 'Haleliwia' was released in November 2008.

A Christmas-themed single ('Yr Arth a'r Lloer' - The Bear and the Moon) was released end of 2009, and was given away as a free CD from Brigyn's website during December '09.

Following a tour of Patagonia during the first months of 2010, Brigyn launched their first ever English-language material during this year. The single 'One Way Streets' was released on March 1st, and the double A-side ('Home / I Need All The Friends I Can Get') was released in December.

Brigyn won the prize for best song at the Pan Celtic Festival in Dingle, Ireland in 2011, following Ynyr's success at the 'Cân i Gymru' (Song for Wales) competition.

A decade to the month after first releasing their music to the world, Brigyn’s long-awaited album, (‘Brigyn4’) was released during November 2014.

Barely a year after the release of 'Brigyn4', another brand new collection of songs was released under the title 'Dulog' (Armadillo), The album concluded a year of special events to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Y Wladfa - the Welsh settlement in Patagonia.

To mark 15 years since forming Brigyn, their seventh album 'LLOER' (Moon) will be released during November 2019. It is a collection of new songs, along with tracks deriving from unique live performances and sessions, that uncovers an additional side to Brigyn’s history over the last decade and a half. Among the raw, wintery, heart-warming tracks, there is a wealth of contributors - including Bryn Terfel, Linda Griffiths (Plethyn), Meinir Gwilym and Gareth Bonello (The Gentle Good).
