The Gentle Good Won The Welsh Music Prize 2017
This year saw The Gentle Good take the 2017 Welsh Music Prize. It goes without saying that we are massive fans of his, and the winning album ‘Ruins / Adfeilion’.
Huw Stephens, said: “The shortlist this year was particularly strong. We are very proud of these great albums being made by Welsh musicians, released on thriving independent labels. Celebrating and promoting them is very important.
“After much deliberation, the judges decided on The Gentle Good’s album, a stunning record that has reached a worldwide audience on an independent Cardiff label. Congratulations Gareth on the win!”
