This album is a beautifully crafted collection of melodic songs which I wasnt really expecting to like. JJ has a wonderfully rich voice that hooks you into the tune and especially the chorus. Lots of strings and some clever hooks make this a hybrid betweeen folk and dare I say 'middle of the road' but not in the 'corny' sence of the word. Never thought I'd enjoy this type of sound but I found I was entranced by the way the songs unravel and pull you in so that you dont push the pause or next track button and I have played this half a dozen times! Sit back,relax and enjoy the mellow sounds of a well rounded singer/songwriter

This is an extremely satisfying debut Lp from the talented JJ. I was drawn in by the voice at first, as I suspect will most people, but what really makes it are the wonderful arrangements and orchestration.

I've been reminded, at various times, of John Martyn, Nick Drake, Van Morrison, Roy Harper and, strangely, Caravan. Can't be a bad thing.

The overall feel is far more soulful than some of those references suggest, and he has the sort of rich, resonant vocal that will set him apart from many of his contemporaries.

An artist of great potential, I can't wait to see what he'll come up with next. Oh, and the trombone solo in the final song is pure joy.

This is a great debut album from Jonathan Jeremiah and he's a lovely guy, met him recently on tour supporting Katie Melua at the Philharmonic Hall Liverpool.
His songs are very easy listening great lyrics and all a beautiful sound through and through. If you like Cat Stevens, Nick Drake like i do you will hear a resemblence in some of his songs but he does have his own unique voice/style and the young orchestra that perform on this album with him are superb, just wish they had of been with him at the Phil! Well worth a listen, and loved by a wide age group, i bought this for my mum who also saw him live and loved him and she is 80 years old! Check him out! :-)

What a voice! Mellow, rich, emotional and resonant. Although definitely his own, there are echoes of Gary Puckett, Cat Stevens, Brook Benton, Scott Walker, Ralph McTell, Kris Kristofferson, OC Smith to name a few. Almost male vocal perfection.

Songs, instrumentation, arrangements and production worthy of Jimmy Webb, Burt Bacharach, et all. The sound of this album is somewhere between 1967 and 1975, but sounds completely at home in the current musical environment.

I cannot recommend this enough if you love great vocalists, if you are a fan of Glen Campbell, Cat Stevens, Richard Hawley, Harry Nilsson, James Morrison etc you will be totally at home here. If you don't know who any of them are, give it a go for a perfect soundtrack to summer.

10/10, almost faultless.

If you told me this had come out originally in 1975 I'd have believed you. If you told me Nick Drake, John Barry, Burt Bacharach, Peter Sarstedt and John Martyn had been blended into a single soul, I'd also buy it. For all that, it's fresh, soulful and literate. Musically it swoons and swoops, joyous and heartfelt. I bought this and the remastered Judee Sill album at the same time-- they're of a piece, even separated by decades. Music with class and verve. Recommended.

I heard this playing at a friends house - it suited the moment - but now I've got my own copy have to say it's a very enjoyable listen. I like his voice and the arrangements, I like the songs, I love the big brass backings. Undemanding but very satisfying.

Got this after hearing the track 'heart of stone' which i liked. Done a quick preview listen of the cd and thought I would give it a try, it has a good few tracks at the start but, seems to get a bit lost half way through! Sure some people will disagree but, would have rather downloaded just the first few tracks as the rest of the album is a bit dull.
