Having swapped psychedelic Liverpool outfit The Coral for a solo career, Bill Ryder-Jones is coming to Devon with his latest album.
The multi-instrumentalist is touring his critically acclaimed album Yawny Yawn - a piano version of last year's Yawn.
Ryder-Jones will be appearing at the Exeter Phoenix on Sunday, September 29.
"I can't remember why I thought it was a good idea to make a piano version of Yawn," he said.
"I presume at some point I felt that the original had too much pep. [It] was actually quite fun to make although I've since developed a dislike for the way my hands look".
The multi-instrumentalist, producer, string-arranger and composer has had a career spanning 15 years.
From his musical interpretation of Italo Calvino's If On A Winters Night A Traveller (If... in 2011), 2013's A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart, West Kirby County Primary (2015) and last year's Yawn, Ryder-Jones has constantly widened his scope.
