    If is the debut solo album from Bill Ryder-Jones. Written as a tribute to Italian avant-garde author Italo Calvinos postmodern novel If On A Winters Night A Traveller, If is mapped out as soundtrack inspired by the book. Grand orchestral movements sit side by side with stark, nakedly emotional vocal pieces that weave a a bleak but beautifully moving and always visceral narrative.

    The album was recorded in various locations around Ryder-Jones hometown of Liverpool, including a Scandinavian Church, the Grade II listed warehouse Elevator Studios and his mothers house. Musicians, friends, parents and even the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra pulled together in order for If to become a reality. The Liverpool Philharmonic joined Ryder-Jones at the friary in Everton Valley for the instrumental tracks, of which there are five out of the ten on the record.

    Taking its cue from Abel Korzeniowskis off-kilter soundtrack for Tom Fords acclaimed film A Single Man, Ifs influences are eclectic and diverse, from modern cinema composers like Michael Galasso (Seraphine) and Clint Mansell (The Wrestler, Black Swan) to psychedelic sorcerer Syd Barrett, Nick Cave and nineties Welsh indie-psych disciples Gorkys Zygotic Mynci.
