Bill Ryder-Jones left the Coral after their fifth studio album, Roots & Echoes, on which his arrangements hinted at a deeper and spectacular compositional talent.
His new album A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart, which marries his masterful capacities as arranger and composer with his first firm steps as a singer songwriter.
It's an album of capital-S songs that will more than sate the appetite of those that appreciate his knack for heart swelling melody and painterly detail.
