Life Goes On:
"A beguiling approach that nods towards Austin ... in its relaxed storytelling. This album will make you smile " Scotland on Sunday 2005
"The strength of this record is the atmosphere that is created - like well turned wood there is attention to the craft ... Imagine winter, hunched up by the fire, wind howling - this’d keep you warm." Americana UK
