Newsoundwales presents VOYA

Newsoundwales presents VOYA

Sat 15 April

VOYA are a Cardiff-based duo influenced by the meticulous song writing, opulent production and emotive vocals of early 80s British synthesiser-based pop music.

Linford Hydes trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama; his previous work was leading the art-rock band ‘Palomino Party’. He has an understanding of theatre and a penchant for performance combined with a classically trained, yet soulful vocal delivery.

Eddie Al-Shakarchi is an award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist who shaped the sound of Boy Azooga’s acclaimed 1, 2 Kung Fu! album, which catapulted the band to international success and sold-out, headline tours. His background in science (culminating in a PhD in audio processing techniques) combines with his musicality as an artist and experience as a producer, and allows him to create the perfect soundscapes for Hyde’s vocals.


+ Support from:

Esther is a Welsh singer, songwriter, producer, DJ and dancer. Esther takes joy in challenging musical tradition, crossing genres and leading the listener slightly off centre.

Ivor Woods is the solo project of South Wales-based queer artist Rachel Crabbe, who crafts a mix of electronic alt-pop with their signature brooding, atmospheric sound and deep bass elements.
