Dan Amor was brought up in Penmachno, where he now lives. BBC Radio Cymru and Radio Wales listeners will be familiar with his material, and John Peel played two of his songs. His second album, Adlais (‘Echo’), is out now on Recordiau Cae Gwyn Records, his own label. The record bears a strong 60s and 70s influence. Dan records with John Lawrence, former member of Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. Ben Ellis sings harmonies.

Dilynodd Jim Knight gwrs mewn astudiaethau America Lladinaidd ym Mhrifysgol Lerpwl, yn arbenigo mewn portreadau llenyddol o wrthdaro cymdeithasol. Aeth ymlaen i wneud MA ymchwil ar ymddangosiad y mudiad awduron chwyldroadol a elwir yn ‘Committed Generation’ yn El Salfador. Ar hyn o’r bryd, mae Jim yn cwblhau PhD ymchwil ar ganfyddiadau o drais mewn llenyddiaeth Safladoriaidd, o’r cyfnodau yn arwain at, ac yn dilyn y Rhyfel Cartref.

Magwyd Dan Amor ym mhentref Penmachno, Dyffryn Conwy, ac mae’n dal i fyw yno hyd heddiw. Bydd gwrandawyr BBC Radio Cymru a Radio Wales yn gyfarwydd â’i ddeunydd, a chwaraeodd John Peel ddwy o’i ganeuon. Mae Dan wedi rhyddhau ‘Adlais’, ei ail albym, ar Recordiau Cae Gwyn – ei label recordio ei hun, Ceir ddylanwad gerddorol gryf o’r 60au a’r 70au ar yr albwm. Mae Dan yn recordio gyda John Lawrence, cyn aelod o Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. Ben Ellis sy’n canu harmoniau.
