"I am a songwriter from Canada. I was trying hard to put lyrics together on a song I've still not finished. I went looking for award-winning lyrics to get some inspiration and found your lyrics to 'So Little Gain'. They made me choke. Awesome, amazing, beautiful lyrics."

"1960s poetic folk --Dylan, Baez, Phil Ochs, Simon & Garfunkel, et al--is the music of my 20s, and your music and lyrics take me back to that era and put me in mind of those artists, their language and music---simply presented, deeply felt."

"Well Spun Lies is an album of delicious self-penned songs delivered by an English songwriter writing about his country, his experiences and the intense emotions that move his soul. The warm richness of his vocals overlay simply constructed yet enticing melodies to make this album a thought-provoking listen -- just prepare to weep as the words cut to your core."

"I found your piece very moving. It was one of the foundations on which I built the programme playlist."

"Songs to Contemplate and Remember."

"Excellent songs."
