Songlines, Dec 21

  “emerged as one of today's outstanding talents” ~ Sunday Herald 

 

“An outstanding product of the Scottish jazz-folk scene who at one moment can blow a low whistle like Charlie Parker through ‘Ko-Ko’  steaming his way and at the next knock out an air on a sax like a Highland traditionalist” ~ Jazzwise  

 

“it’s the interplay between intellectual construction, fleeting modal improvisations and sheer emotional sensuality of the music that makes this (stereocanto) such a satisfying, and strikingly unified, piece of work” ~ Songlines
