A REVIEW, BY JEREMIAH SUTHERLAND, OF BULLFROG MUSIC: "I confess I’m a sucker for cello and flute in my music. I confess that I love literary, intelligent, dramatic, carefully crafted lyrics and charming melodies. I own up to the enjoyment of listening to an unaffected masculine tenor.


This music has a definite Celtic taste and smell, but like many fine wines, there’s much more available to the listener who takes the time to linger over the glass. You’ll find elements of Loreena McKennitt, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, The Moody Blues, Al Stewart and quite a few others. So the music isn’t just Celtic; it harks back to some of the magical, fairy-touched music produced by the likes of Steeleye Span and Pentangle. It’s that old folk-rock tradition updated to the new century.

The ambience is dark with speckles of light which may or may not be stars. There’s a mixture of regret, fond remembrance, gentleness and wistfulness at the roads not taken.

The cello and flute are used to great effect, providing nice touches of both deep sonority (cello) and floating musicality (flute). The albums are mixed so as to reveal their presence without letting them take over the stage... Sweet, mellifluous, good listening".
