Mared Williams is a Welsh singer-songwriter and actor sharing her time between Llannefydd (North Wales) and London. Having studied music at the University of Leeds until 2018, Mared found her love for songwriting, as well as performing with the University Big Band. Moving on to nurture her love for performance, she studied a masters in musical theatre performance at the Royal Academy Of Music, which led to her landing ensemble and understudy Eponine roles in the West End production of Les Miserables in 2019.
Whilst shows came to a halt in 2020, Mared joined lockdown-formed musical theatre group Welsh of the West End, and they have since been performing concerts across the country including the Royal Albert Hall and Britain’s Got Talent. Mared’s debut, bilingual pop/folk album, Y Drefn, was released with I KA Ching Records in 2020, and awarded Welsh Album of the Year 2021, which included live sessions of Mared performing her originals with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. The album is a collection of nostalgic and heartfelt songs, written over the course of 7 years. Mared’s latest project in 2022 is soul-pop EP, Something Worth Losing, which is co-written and produced by Jamiroquai instrumentalist and solo artist, Nate Williams.
As well as the EP, Mared will also be performing at the University Of Leeds School Of Music on July 7th 2022.
