"delicate and introspective. a very international flavor"
"Rough" is a precious ship's log to witness the exploration. It is the synthesis of a 4 years long journey, to overcome the geographic borders through an attentive and introspective reflection about the stories that crossed the road [...] Simple melodies, but sill refined and incisive, that all together create an intimate, human and evocative atmosphere. [...] Contagious nostalgia and tender melancholy [...] Rough avoids tricks and twists to show something that is pretty close to the concept of enchantment; It is a beautiful piece of folk and lo-fi songwriting. Sometimes it is just a pleasure to write about some albums, they are albums that you can't wait to share, that you slowly uncover. Rough is one of these albums"
"Sehr gut möglich, dass man Stead derweil durch die Lande tingelnd antrifft und so Zeuge eines faszinierenden Entstehungsprozesses werden kann. Ergibt sich dem Hörer die Gelegenheit, sei ihm wärmstens ans Herz gelegt, sie zu nutzen. Bis dahin lassen wir uns von 'Rough' begeistern."

And i really think that another me already won” - "folk atmospheres and deep whispered narrative interlacements crashed by reminiscences of his innate rock attitude"
