Gwenifer Raymond

Raymond began playing guitar at the age of eight shortly after having been first exposed to punk and grunge. After years of playing around the Welsh valleys in various punk outfits she began listening more to pre-war blues musicians as well as Appalachian folk players, eventually leading into the guitar players of the American Primitive genre.

She released her debut LP You Never Were Much Of A Dancer on Tompkins Square earlier this year to rapturous response. She has found herself equally embraced by fans of old-west and equally, by left field/experimental audiences.

She has appeared throughout the UK and Ireland, and the US. Her new LP drops some time in the not too distant future and plans a return to the US as well as her first EU shows.
