Lyrically, London-based Bryde finds intense internal poetry in everyday adversity.
While concentrating thematically on life and human interaction, her songwriting persona wears her bruised yet resolute heart on her sleeve.
For the Wales-born songwriter, it's not just the technical precision of her lyrics that resonate with a widening fanbase, it's also her vocal delivery.
On her latest song To Be Brave Bryde's voice carries us beyond the imprecision of words into feelings we all know but can't delineate.
As she says: "To Be Brave was written as kind of a soft squeeze of the hand to many friends who have, like me, been through many a dark period and put on a brave face and just got on with it.
"It's a comment about how we all live out certain episodes of our lives in such a public setting these days that I feel we almost edit them to appear flawless, nothing but smiles."
To Be Brave is a shock to the system of preconceived notions about the style of artist Bryde is.
She's rock and roll for sure, but protean and poetic, a rocker in the vein of Patti Smith.
Last year she had people queuing round the block
for a stunning early performance on day three of The Great Escape Festival
, in Brighton.
In support of the release Bryde be back in Brighton on 30th April, at Komedia Brighton. 'Like An Island' comes out on Seahorse Music on the 13th April 2018. Support in the form of Women Make Music fund from PRS has been awarded to assist its release.
