Gwenifer Raymond is a Welsh multi-instrumentalist, originally from Cardiff but now residing in Brighton, England.
Gwenifer began playing guitar at the age of eight shortly after having been first exposed to punk and grunge. After years of playing around the Welsh valleys in various punk outfits she began listening more to pre-war blues musicians as well as Appalachian folk players, eventually leading into the guitar players of the American Primitive genre. Gwenifer has since been playing her own moody and often-times manic original American Primitive styled compositions on guitar and banjo around the UK and US.
In 2017 she signed to the multi grammy award nominated label Tompkins Square, and released her first single ‘Sometimes There’s Blood’ in October of that year, with her debut album ‘You Never Were Much of a Dancer’ released the following year.
