RUDI is the solo project of 19-year-old singer-songwriter Rudi Lloyd-Benson who comes from the smallest city in the UK: St Davids, Wales.
RUDI delivers catchy indie rock music, which echoes sounds straight from the early 2000s. His style is influenced by the very bands that birthed noughties indie rock – The Strokes and The Libertines, but also takes inspiration from classic rock artists such as Joy Division.

Rona Mac (she/her,) is a self-invented, genre-fusing, queer singer-songwriter bringing us guitar driven tracks which provide a hooky bed for her haunting vocals and sophisticated lyricism, resulting in raw, lo-fi indie-pop heavily influenced by Americana-Folk and Country. She records and produces in her caravan at home in rural West Wales, and her music is imbued with her surroundings of rugged cliffs and wide open spaces.
Hence, her music comes unfiltered and full of feeling, as she says “If I can talk about things we’ve been told we shouldn’t, and help people connect to feelings they tucked away in their teens, then I’ll be happy when I’m old”.
Rona Mac has recently played at Focus Wales Showcase, Sŵn Fest, Half moon Putney, Clwb Ifor Bach, New York’s CMJ music marathon and Great Escape.
