9Bach formed with idea of reworking the traditional Welsh language Folk song.
The alchemy of harp, harmonium, and glockenspiel, with bass, drums and textural guitar, craft a haunting, spectral sound.
Their distinctive sound has seen them tour the UK regularly since their first single release in 2007, which saw all 500 copies of their self pressed single "Pontypridd" sell out.
Two more singles followed, before the release of their debut album "9Bach", in 2009.
Critics were unanimous in their praise, with 4 star reviews in The Guardian, fRoots, Uncut, Artrocker, and many others.
After festival shows in 2011, including, Womad UK, & Caceres , and Noordezon Performing Arts Festival, Martin and Lisa travelled to Australia, to collaborate with the " Black Arm Band" working on a show for the Cultural Olympiad 2012.
Since then 9Bach have been writing and recording material for their 2nd album which is due out in 2013.
