Best-known for his tenure in the hard-to-peg-down Welsh outfit Super Furry Animals, Gruff Rhys has a long history in British rock. In 1990, a chance meeting helped lead to the development of what would become Super Furry Animals.

First a left-field techno group, then later a whacked-out guitar group, SFA got much of their character and respect from Rhys' outlandish and obscure lyrical slants. After many critically acclaimed singles and full-lengths, Rhys released his solo outing Yr Atal Genhedlaeth in 2005. And in true Gruff Rhys form, it was an entirely Welsh affair.

In 2013 he devoted himself to an ambitious multimedia project called American Interior. An album, a movie, and a book, American Interior traced Rhys' journey through America to track the legend of John Evans, a Welshman who searched for the legendary lost tribe of Welsh-speaking Native Americans in 1792. The project was unveiled in the spring of 2014 with the album seeing release in May of that year.
