William J. Walker "Billyjay"
 
The Pirate's Gospel

"Fantastic album my most played of last year(and this). If you like Be Good Tanyas, Gillian Welch, Josephine Foster... Very soulful voice. Rough Trade's album of 2007 and mine too."
Faces In The Rocks
Faces In The Rocks
"I found this artist, by chance, at about the same time as Alela Diane. Long poetic pieces over gorgeous N.Drake like guitar rhythms.Beautiful voice. Has invoked comparisons to Joanna Newsom."
Until Death Comes
Until Death Comes
"Reminds me of Nina Nastasia and Regina Spektor with out being particularly like either. Swedish, although you'd not know it just listening to the music."

"Speaking of Nina. Her finest to date and one of the finest albums by a female artist in recent times."
Begin To Hope

"...and speaking of Regina. Quirkily magnificent. Long may she reign."
HAZEL EYES,IWILL LEAD YOU
HAZEL EYES,IWILL LEAD YOU
"From 'opera school drop out' to mysterious alt-folk siren. A gorgeous  album to bewitch and beguile."
Wild and Undaunted

"Every few years an artist comes along that, it is suggested, will take folk into the mainstream. This artist is the first, in a very long, time that is good enough to do it."
Night Visiting
Night Visiting
"I would compare her to Lisa Knapp in that she blends new and old seamlessly.   A must for anyone who likes folk with an english flavour."
The Bells Of 1 2

"Gorgeous stuff from one-time Sparklehorse collaborator. Gets better with every play."
Sarabeth Tucek

"New discovery this. Brilliant voice, fantastic songs. Reminds me of Aimee Mann's "Whatever" with a hint of Cat Power's "The Greatest". Best of 2007?"
Sunny Border Blue

"A recent find, if not such a recent album. Every song(except the first)is a very strong tune. The lyrics are dark but with humour too."

"Stunning quality debut. Like Espers/Bright Black Morning Light? this is for you. Floaty."
White Chalk

"If Dylan created a consternation in the ranks of his fans by plugging in, PJ seems to have done something similar by unplugging. Give it a try."
Volta

"Nother one that seems to be splitting opinions. But Bjork is always worth hearing."
Martha Wainwright

"Probably the best album of 2005. Still sounds great. Has a great emotional range."
The Sleep Shelter Ep
The Sleep Shelter Ep
"I originally intended to include the album but this is better. Good stuff, in a Beth Orton vein, from the Mojave 3 singer."
Fireproof

"If you like Americana as a genre then this is sure to delight. She's been around for a while but this is her first release with a bit of push behind it."
You Sound, Reflect
You Sound, Reflect
"Hard to categorise. When she sings she reminds me of Nina Nastasia but she also does some near-ambient/post rock instrumentals. High quality stuff."
Seventh Tree
Seventh Tree
"Not quite going to replace "Felt Mountain" in my affections but very enjoyable."
Alas I Cannot Swim
Alas I Cannot Swim
"In terms of commercial impact she may have made a smaller impression than her counter-parts but she may turn out to be the best long term bet. Exceeds expectations."
Keep Your Silver Shined
Keep Your Silver Shined
"Wow what a find! Caught her on "Later" and by the 2nd song I was hooked. Reminds me of the first 2 Kate and Anna McGarrigle albums, with a touch of The Roches thrown in for good measure."
