Bryn came to London from Lancashire in the late sixties and joined “Les Fleur de Lys” a motown/soul band which became house band for Atlantic Records in England. He left the band in ’69 and travelled to California. He toured extensively in the US in various American bands and was a founder member of Wolfgang, a band put together and managed by the legendary Bill Graham, appearing on bills with Led Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane and others. In 1973 he returned to England and was signed to Island Records where he made his first LP, “Let The Days Go By”.
Bryn recorded further albums for Island and then A&M Records and during this period made numerous radio and TV appearances, including sessions for John Peel and appearances on BBC’s Old Grey Whistle Test, as well as touring extensively supporting such artists as Traffic, Bad Company, Gallagher & Lyle and Fairport Convention. He is also well known as a session guitar player, playing with top musicians including Chris de Burgh, Joan Armatrading, Cliff Richard and Gerry Rafferty.
In 1974 Bryn and his wife Sally became Christians and this powerful experience brought a strong gospel influence into his music. In 1990, whilst on staff at the SW London Vineyard Church developing worship ministries, Bryn was invited to play in Wandsworth Prison and since then invitations to play and share his story inside prisons have flowed in. Performing in prisons is now the larger part of his music ministry, but he also continues to perform Gospel concerts in halls, theatres, and churches around the country.
He has released 15 further albums including 2 CDs which have been made specifically for prison inmates. His latest CD ‘Rebel Man’ was released in autumn 2015.
"The quality of the music and the whole atmosphere of the evening meant that I was not disappointed in any way. It was a great night out."
“Haworth knows his strengths—riffs, blues, intricate instrumentals and adroit slide work. He plays to them."
"Bryn's music has been entertaining me and challenging my guitar playing for the past three decades, but more importantly it has been inspiring my faith; a real Ephesians 5:19 ministry."
"I get the feeling that after 40 years of playing, it's still the sheer joy of making music that's important to Bryn rather than the glittering baubles of celebrity status."
“If we are to have God-rock, then let it be Bryn Haworth; he thinks of the music foremost... you owe yourself a listen”
"His vast experience and dazzling musicianship coupled to his gentle, winsome spirit have made Bryn one of the most loved figures in the whole panoply of British musicians - both Christian and non-Christian."
