“A hypnotic live act and a unique sound….a raw, primal power…the essence of dance music…a captivating force, hypnotic and revelatory. You are swept away like a wooden shack in a tornado…” Colorhorizon (live review)
Rhys Bloodjoy has been wowing audiences on the underground since emerging on the Manchester live scene in late 2014.
Shrouded in mystery with his head hooded, Bloodjoy’s one-guitar-sound combines heartfelt vocals, semi-controlled feedback and echo-drenched acoustic guitar loops and beats; a sound which has been described as “Hypnotic…mellow and intense at the same time”, while his live performance has been dubbed as one that “quite easily blows most four and five piece epics bands off the stage.”
News of the forthcoming 12″ – to be released in May – will follow shortly!
Available: May 13th / 28th (also for supports) and on request

“This man, alone with his loop machine and guitar, shines bright with talent. It’s Joy in your Blood indeed, homeless Joy under warehouses’ ceilings and along silvery canals.” Ask The Sky Magazine
“One man, a guitar, a host of effects pedals. Rhys Bloodjoy loops, layers and builds his sound from the ground up to create an experience that gradually grows in intensity. Dark, and moody in a rather exquisite, hypnotic way. The singer-songwriter is a rare talent. Others have called him a lo-fi genius. Don’t be fooled by this. It’s a technically wonderful set that if I was to sum up in one word, it would have to be spellbinding.” Backseat Mafia
“Manchester’s Rhys Bloodjoy’s unique style fusion of the modern sing-songwriter and all-consuming psychedelia quite easily blows most 4 and five epics bands off the stage and has earnt him space on the bills of some of the best nights of live music the North of England has to offer” Burn Down The Disco
“One-man psychedelic loopsmith…stretching the mind’s limits from a minimalist starting point” Grey Lantern
“A tortured soul with a lot of talent…a modern day monk of some Holy Order of Melancholia…” Local Sound Focus (live review)
