“A seamless mix of country and folk from Down Under…encapsulates perfectly the appeal of the true singer-songwriter.” MM, Maverick Magazine (UK)

“a sheer joy on repeated listening”
– David Dawson, Beat Magazine

“well written, well played, a gentle pleasure, and virtually impossible to dislike.”

-Kim Cheshire, Country Update
