I was introduced to this artist and album when it came out a few years back. To be honest I thought "and so what?". The songs are low key, the delivery muted. Some of the tunes take a long time to travel, well, not very far. But when I recently returned to it something had changed. I guess it has to be me. For a start, the execution is impeccable. The combination of open tuned, finger-picked guitar, stand up bass and bitter-sweet vocals is exquisite. The stories, the intimate melodies draw the listener in. There are hints of John Martyn and that means that this is great late night music - listen to it driving home in the dark after a gig and it will beguile you. Believe me.
