Student's Song Makes 'In New Music we Trust' BBC Radio 1 Playlist

Casi Wyn, a third year Drama student, has secured a slot on the BBC Radio 1 playlist for her track, Roads

25 February 2015

The track will be played from 2nd March 2015, and will be included throughout R1's daytime output, including on:

  • Monday: Fearne Cotton (10:00-12.45)
  • Tuesday: Greg James (16:00-19:00)
  • Wednesday: Gemma Cairney (04:00-06:30)
  • Thursday: Scott Mills (13:00-16:00)
  • Saturday: Alice Levine (13:00-16:00)
  • Sunday: Dev (07:00-10:00)

Responding to the news, Casi said: "It’s quite cool that Roads, a song that I've written, will be played on primetime BBC Radio 1. The station has defined the musical soundtrack to my secondary school years and continues to do so - BBC Introducing’s a great platform for young musicians and artists who write their own music".

Casi's atmospheric pop rewrites everything we thought we knew about Walesʼ musical offering. Immersed in traditional Welsh music as a child, Casi developed a passion for electronic music and her distinctive style began to emerge. She recently performed some of her songs at the BBC Proms, working alongside the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
