“Beautiful stuff, quality alternative sounds” – Soundsphere Magazine
His songwriting shows the influence of his time growing up in Manchester and is modernised by the rugged personality of his wonderful voice and strikingly delivered lyricism.
A sound that is finely poised between alternative and blues rock with roots of gentle Americana – with intoxicating unpredictability, but most of all, every note and every word is infused with an inimitable passion, his voice occupying a special space between a tender whisper and a savage roar.

‘Fine, fine songwriting’ – Jumbo Records
‘Upbeat, excitable, often smiling and with an image of creative intelligence’ – Medium
