His first solo music appeared in 2005, and his first single, "Donkey Island", was released on Wichita Recordings in November of that year. He then embarked on a UK tour with fellow Welsh musician Alun Tan Lan.
Childs' first solo album, Chops, was released on Wichita Recordings in February 2006, quickly followed by his second and last single from the album, "Costa Rita". By the middle of 2006 Gorky's Zygotic Mynci had announced their split, allowing Childs and Richard James to focus on their solo projects.
Childs' second solo album, the all-Welsh language Bore Da, was released in March 2007. This was followed in August of the same year by The Miracle Inn. His fourth album, Cheer Gone, was released in October 2008.
In 2009, Childs made his next album, Son of Euro Child, available as a free download from his official website. He also formed the duo Jonny in Edinburgh with Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake.
