Press:

Richard James - We Went Riding

Anyone wanting to know the secret of the perfect pop song should wrap their ears around the countrified gorgeousness of 'When You See Me in the Pouring Rain'.
Joe Clay, The Times, 26/06/10

This second solo album is chock full of perfect pop songs couched in country, Welsh folk and punk flourishes... with songs like these, it can only become a matter of time before the world becomes aware of how talented Richard James is.
Will Hodgkinson, Mojo, July 2010

--------------------

9bach - 9bach

Some of the great delights of traditional songs are the often brutal or wildly emotional stories they tell, but here's a debut British folk album that is compelling even for those who can't understand a word of what is being sung.
Robin Denselow, The Guardian, 21/08/09

Welsh language folk, heavy on atmosphere.... The result, highlighted by 'Mae'n Nhw'n Dwedyd' is a melange of Portishead, Cocteau Twins and Lorca-era Tim Buckley.
Mick Houghton, Uncut, September 2009

--------------------

The Gentle Good - While You Slept I Went Out Walking

The contours of his lonely voice on such as Baled y Confict bring to mind Mick Drake and Martin Carthy, yet it remains resolutely his own.
David Buckley, Uncut, February 2009

--------------------

Lleuwen - Penmon

Once heard, you can't help but fall under the singer's spell. File under: leftfield classic.
Peter Quinn, Jazzwise Magazine, August 2007

This is unique. The setting of songs sung in Europe's oldest continuously spoken language in a modern jazz idiom is startling. An amazing album.
Richard Thomas, Acoustic Magazine, October 2007
