Armed with a dusty box of his fathers’ old 80s and funk records for inspiration, Bridgend singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist  Ci Gofod (Jack Thomas Davies)  made his solo debut with the sweet and soulful single ' Castle Square'  in 2020.
Taking influences from the likes of  Super Furry Animals  and  Sly And The Family Stone ,  Ci Gofod’s  brand new single  ‘Rhedeg Yn Y Nos’;  which translates to ‘Running At Night’ is a blissful yet funky groove that melts dreamy guitar melodies over  Thomas-Davies  chilled out Welsh language vocals.

Davies writes and records his 80s-inspired soul-infused disco-funk grooves from his bedroom studio in the South Wales Valleys. To bring his unique brand of indie-funk euphoria to stages, his live band now consists of  Josh David Read  (keys, guitar, vox), Lloyd Bastian (guitar, vox),  Quillian Thomas  (bass), and  Josh Cox  (drums).

Ci Gofod’s singles have been a regular feature on  Adam Walton’s BBC Radio Wales  show and  BBC Radio Cymru Aled Hugh’s BBC Radio Cymru  show also ran an extensive interview in Welsh.

Ci Gofod’s most successful single to date, Lose the Pressure, which will be a hit with any fans of Chic, Jungle, Sly and the Family Stone, has racked up over 46k streams on Spotify alone.

Along with his mission to fill dancefloors with his energetic and flamboyant sound, Ci Gofod also seeks to orchestrate aural melting pots of funk, indie and neo-soul that pays ode to his Welsh heritage. His sights are firmly fixed on making an everlasting mark on the South Wales music scene; his success from the outset is proving that he’s a soulful force to be reckoned with.

“Hitting play on any of Ci Gofod’s singles is a sure-fire way to get a soul fix, but for the most potent shot, delve right into the dreamy, energetic tones of Digital Conversation which captures the lament for our digital reality while allowing you to be enlivened by it. If that isn’t how you define stellar musicianship, I don’t know what is.”
