“Superb musicianship coupled with a mastery of the mixing desk brings life flowing to this eclectic, confessional opening statement of a first release... This whole album is a work of great dexterity and skill that is scarce to be found in the charts today. Do yourself a favour and fall in love with these songs today.”

— Simon Dwight, The Soundcloud Campfire
