‘Dramatic, note perfect and rich with emotion, ‘Rhydian’ is the first album of an indisputably fantastic original singing voice’
After being discovered on The X Factor in 2007 where he was touted as the bookies’ favourite to win, Rhydian now bursts back onto the music scene with his magnificent debut album.

Rhydian’s undeniable talent, unmistakable voice and look have already won him an army of fans, and will attract many more with the launch of his self-titled debut album. Crammed full of passionate, inspiring songs performed in his inimitable style, Rhydian is set to touch the hearts of millions with his mesmerising classical voice.
The Welsh star’s impeccable technique as displayed on his polished debut performance is the result of a lifetime passion for singing and an unparalleled commitment to his craft. Beginning as a boy soprano at just age three, Rhydian’s goal has always been to connect with the British public through the gift of his classically trained voice. The release of his album Rhydian is quite literally a dream come true for the talented singer.
The album has been almost a year in the making and well worth it. To perfect his debut effort, Rhydian has worked with an array of producers, with mentors including Steve Mac, Desmond Child, Quiz & Larossi, Per Magnusson and David Kreuger.
An number of original tracks have been written especially for Rhydian, including the heart-stirring ‘I’m Coming Home Again’. The stunning lead single ‘The Impossible Dream’ was unveiled exclusively on the X Factor.
The album will also feature his showstoppers from the X Factor, Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, West Side Story’s ‘Somewhere’ and ‘What If’, a fantastic duet with Broadway star Idina Menzel.
Rhydian commented, “You can’t rush a good album; we wanted to make something timeless, full of great songs, not just an X Factor tribute.” Rhydian added: “Whatever song I sing, I try to put my own stamp on it. I am classically trained, but I don’t regard myself as an opera singer. I quite like the fact that I don’t fit into any particular style. I just try and connect with a song myself and then, if I’m moved, I can actually make a magnetic connection with an audience.”
Rydian’s self-titled album is now available in record stores released under Sony Music (Philippines). Grab a copy now!
