.”.. Neat rhyming couplets and louche-limbed melodies peeping out from under a look that’s gazing decidedly askance at the world. Folk-fuelled arrangements, including banjo and bouzouki…but the wistful guitar lines whisper of a kinship with the more left-field musings of Joanna Newsom.” **** Siobhan Long
Beautifully produced.. exquisite debut .. a breezier Gillian Welch, a folkier Rickie Lee Jones ,a touch of Dusty on the vocal’..**** Hotpress
“..She does waltzes, she does shuffles,she does winsome and wistful and exasperated and
lovelorn, often within the same verse..Alice Jago is a girl you don’t hear everyday.” -Peter Murphy ****
