Press praise for songwriter Matt HILL
The wordplay is pure Costello. Delicate songwriting, with hints of folk and Americana. Bleakly beautiful.
Possibly the most important record of the year
He gets the tone spot-on evoking an authentic spirit of English folk music. A superb album.
A reminder of the song writing powers of Matt Hill. It’s Hill at his most passionate and inflamed. It made me feel humble and inspired.
A canny story teller. If Matt Hill never writes or sings another song ever again he can die a happy man for creating this masterpiece.
An absolute gem. Hill is an incredibly talented writer and these superb songs and his slow measured voice paint pictures.
MORNING STAR (Album of the year 2017)
He gathers his songs around him and weaves them into works of wonder’
ROCK N REEL
The Loner's unvarnished, acoustic guitar-gilded explorations shine.
THE DAILY MIRROR
If heartbreak has ever before been melded into such an intriguing, downright splendid attraction then I’d be at pains to believe it, for this is an absolute treasure of originality.
This is an album that deserves to take pride of place in anyone's Best Of lists at the end of the year, it simply is that good.
COMES WITH A SMILE
Arresting country pop of the highest order. Eleven songs that we guarantee will strike you dumb.
Believe me, you need to hear this album. There's not a weak track here. One of the very best homegrown UK roots-rock albums your reviewer has ever clapped ears on.
