"Reviews for Diving Down, Autumn Ferment Rercords, Aug 2009."

(An) angelic collection of folk-infused musical tales...This is a marvellous, captivating album, and possibly the beginning of something important; enthusiastically recommended.' Terrascope----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------'There’s a feel of living on a pagan Scottish island and getting the urge to burn a Christian policeman in a ritualistic sacrifice, there’s obscure instrumentation in the way the BBC Radiophonic Workshop pioneers would be proud, and there’s a haunting beauty that melts your heart and invites you in to sit on soft furnishings and drink the best warm mug of mead you’ve ever tasted.' -Bearded Magazine. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 'A beautifully impressive collection of songs from an emerging songwriting talent with a great voice.' -Norman Records. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------“charming and original”- Tom Robinson BBC radio6 music. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 'the album’s clockwork rhythms, plucked strings, chimes, whistles & whirs echo the domesticity that bjork was trying to express with ‘vespertine’ & gemma’s high tremulous vocals – equal parts joanna newsom & kate bush – do a high wire act atop these gossamer songs. it is a very confident record that successfully bridges the ever decreasing gap between experimental, genre splitting modernity & solid, old time folk lore. recommended'- Resident Records.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 'This wonderfully arranged (with a professional sonic quality) privately recorded album has all the charms you can imagine from a psychfolk related artist, including the colourful dreamy fantasy state the songs are in.' - Psych -Van Het Folk. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- “utterly brilliant”- Paul Moxham, BBC radio Devon. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 'definitely bonkers in a lovingly endearing sort of way'- AmericanaUK ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Darkness, foreboding, earthbound wandering and airy mists -they are all here" -Folkwords -------------------------------------------------------------------"Considering this is her debut album, I’d say she delivered an excellent work... If you enjoy well-written and well-played modern folk, do check out this release. It’s highly promising and this lady deserves a big audience."- Evening of Light. ------------------------------------------------------"Mournful and hypnotic...this modern day minstrel is on the way up."- Wears the Trousers Magazine.---------------------------- - Multiple:
