“A beautiful selection of original, modern folk compositions” – Folk Radio UK

“Beautiful” – Kathleen MacInnes , BBC Radio Scotland

“A really fabulous band making glorious folk music” – Sam Bonham, BBC Introducing

“A very impressive debut…Highly recommended, fifty minutes of gentle, carefully-crafted quality sounds. It is an album to escape into and become part of; somehow it seems removed from the normal time stream….” Cambridge Music Reviews 

“Ethereal acoustic stylings” – Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

“Beautiful…modern folk songs underpinned with some classic writing” – Songwriting Magazine

“A collection of original songs that sit equally comfortably on the seats of tradition and innovation” – C. Elland, FolkWords

“Bright, optimistic melodies” – Uncut Magazine

“Fans of well-executed modern folk will want to find this band soon, while it can still be seen up close” – Mike O’Cull

“All My Swim …it shimmers and swoops like a yellow wagtail in flight, a harp dances around a gentle guitar and Rebecca’s voice goes to work on a field of empty souls to help them rise again.” – Johnnon Casson, Fresh on the Net
