"I suddenly heard a loud and dissonant gabbling …Wild looked the men, yet wilder the women…."

Wild Welsh Women produce a heady mix of closely meshed harmonies and stirring acoustic accompaniment, with influences drawn from the traditional music of Wales along with more contemporary sources. They have been thrilling audiences around the World for the past few years, touring in the UK, America, Estonia and France.

Centred on the mother & daughter team of Rozi & Tamzin, their intricate harmonies blend in a way that only genetically linked voices can. However, having approached the Wild Welsh Women from opposite ends of the musical spectrum, Rozi & Tamzin bring many different musical flavours to the band. Tamzin is from a blues & folky rock background, writing & recording with several contemporary bands, including 'The Cherubims’, (with Matt & Jon). Rozi, however, comes from more of a traditional folk music background, (having released solo material, and material with Rob) and also having had a classical grounding at Cardiff college of music and Drama in her formative years.

Jo was born & bred in Cumbria and joined Wild Welsh Women in 2002 having recently moved to South Wales. Her background is in the music of the NorthWest borders and she is classically trained having played viola with the Cumbria Philamonic and the Northern Junior Philamonic. John is the latest, and occasional member of Wild Welsh Women, and brings with him a wealth of drumming experience, and a whole new dynamic to the band.

The band’s first album, ‘Isle of Môn’, is a collection of self penned contemporary songs, plus a variety of other material, both traditional and from other writers admired by the band. Self written material draws upon many subjects from the Welsh identity, to long dead female pilots, lost outback dwellers and the Welsh borderlands.
