Broadjam Reviews

"TheUkulele Crime" 

"An instant classic Great musicianship and brilliant song. I love this.                                                                George Formby meets Cab Calloway!"

   "Hard Not to Talk Like Elvis"                                                                                                                         "Supreme talent on display here"

 "Candlelight"                                                                                                                                                                                                        A gorgeous slice of tenderness which radiates sincerity and humanity. The delightful guitar picking and rich, resonant vocal calls to my mind the finest work of Ralph McTell.
