‘As a songwriter, he shows himself to be among the very best talents working in the country at the moment: his songs have immediate, powerful appeal. Boldly characterised, strongly rhythmic, elegantly melodic, with a mature, complex voice in the content and style of the lyrics, he is a writer who will surely be much in demand by the best performing and recording artists.’ – BritishTheatre.com 2017
