Last updated: August 9, 2023

Heledd studied as a theatre maker before moving on to work as a session bass guitarist, touring with Emmy the Great, Chloe Howl and Paper Aeroplanes. She started writing her own music as the front woman of art-rock band, HMS Morris with highlights including, performing at Glastonbury, releasing two albums (another on the way) and gaining two Welsh Music Prize nominations. 

Heledd considers herself more of a songwriter than a producer but has been recording her own demos since establishing HMS Morris and has spent plenty of time in studios. Heledd’s aim throughout this programme is to develop her producing skills in the hope to achieve studio self-sufficiency in the future.
