Bill Ryder-Jones' beautiful debut EP 'A Leave Taking Soundtrack' is now available as a free downloadhere. Herein,Jones made a leap into the field of orchestral music and landed firmly with an exquisite work that gives some indication of his forthcoming album.
Bill Ryder-Jones: ‘When I left the band I wasn't playing much music at all but in 2009 a friend got in touch asking if I would write something for this short he was making, which I did. It's pretty much the only thing I wrote that year but the process opened another world up to me. We thought it'd be nice to give it away to the people who have been interested in what I've been doing on my own and also to hint at the future a little bit. My album, which is a soundtrack inspired by a novel, is pretty much a progression from the things learnt when writing for Leave Taking.
