“The production quality is superlative..’Dreaming In Crowds’ is a gently flowing harmonic beauty with a kind of Carole King feel, without in any way sounding like the legendary singer-songwriter.” Maverick Magazine ****

“the crown jewel on this new EP. Dreaming In Crowds is a real singer/songwriter song. It has depth, both in lyrics and arrangement and tells a heartfelt story in which everyone will recognize something.” Inner Ear Media, The Netherlands

 

Excellent new review for ‘Reminders’ from Maverick Magazine

Brilliant new review of the ‘Reminders’ ep. Thanks to the excellent Maverick Magazine. A thrill to be compared to one of my songwriting heroes, Carole King!

‘I was taken aback at the maturity in both her vocals and songwriting…The production quality is superlative, the songs exceptionally well-written, especially the opening “Reminders” with the intuitive lyrics. “Dreaming In Crowds” is a gently flowing harmonic beauty with a kind of Carole King feel, without in any way sounding like the legendary singer-songwriter. Here’s a young lady who’s blossomed into a mighty fine singer-songwriter deserving of the widest possible recognition. I think it’s time that she took the plunge and recorded a full album with similar quality songs and production as this … it would be a world-beater.’

Norwich Sound and Vision Convention and Ukulele Video from Alphabet Bands

Great weekend playing a set at the busy PRS opening reception for Norwich Sound and Vision Convention. What an inspiring and brilliant festival with relevant panels and keynote interviews.

I met lots of great people during the weekend and also had fun singing my waltz “You Will Know” on ukulele at the lovely House Cafe. Trying not to get distracted by those yummy cakes! Big thanks to the excellent Alphabet Bands.
