Paul Joses, living in Germany but born in Scotland, is not a singer-songwriter like many others. The first time I heard his album: Calling the boatman, I had to get used to the sound of his voice. It reminded me a little bit of Jim Diamond but much stronger and more direct to the soul. Now, after have listened a few times to this cd I appreciate his songs more and more. Together with a group of good musicians he recorded eleven nice love-songs.... I just love his song Bottle in the sand. His voice reaches the right level and the cello does the rest. The only thing that wonders me is why he writes so much short songs, eleven songs and only 36 minutes of music is not to long. Well, better to have 36 quality minutes than 70 minutes of terrible music. And this cd certainly has quality." Eelco Schilder, Folkworld
