We are over the moon at Bubblewrap Collective to have 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!”
We are definitely in agreement with Huw on this. The shortlist this year was incredible, and to have a winner on Bubblewrap with the caliber so high is a real honour. We look forward to continue working with Gareth and will hopefully be announcing some more exciting things happening soon!
