“He’s a romantic at root and his style seems to reach back to the great nineteenth century poets and to Burns, combining the pithiness of the latter with the yearning romanticism of the former though all the while his eye is on the world around him in the here and now.

“Tom Fairnie is Scotland's best kept songwriting secret”
“To a great poet, great picker, great singer: My biggest breath of fresh air for the past 20 years of listening to everything I could get my hands on.”
“Tom Fairnie Country and Folk In a word: Atmospheric This Scottish songwriter has a sound so heroic and wide ranging it’s a wonder how his stunning and far reaching yet subtle country sound isn’t flowing from the fingertips of an American songsmith”
"Fairnie writes excellent material and performs it with the energy and passion of a seasoned player."
