There have been a number of bloggers and radio presenters who have been nice enough to feature or review my music in their Music Blogs and radio shows:

Magnus Reimer wrote about The Mad Pride in his The Music Quack blog. He stated that “Musical influences can be heard from David Bowie, Erik Satie and perhaps some classic Sisters of Mercy, but really none of those names can define him.” Isn’t that nice!

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, David Marskell featured Scary Poppins in his The Indie Machine music blog. He also has an online radio show on Fusion Radio and Indie Love Radio.

Kat Mahina referred to my music as “outsider music with a startling honesty and grace” in her ‘Hot Men Look Hotter In Skinny Jeans’ blog.

Arran Reader posted about my music in his Polar Sunspots music blog saying “this is some seriously great music, and hard to pin down without giving it a listen”.

Russell Auty included my music in his Bonzo Record Show. He started by showcasing music from the Milton Keynes area in the UK but he recently expanded his brief to include international Indie Rock, Alternative Rock and Folk bands/artists as well.

There are also some radio stations who have been supporting my music such as XChamberRadio, Radio Globus, Party 934 Now, Backyard Party RadioRussian Gothic Radio.

Carpeaux was nice enough to write a review of Scary Poppins in his inb4track music blog. One section I found particularly accurate was this:

“The singing is halfway between more ethereal schools of folk (Tim Buckley and such) and psychedelic (the tracks as a whole wander between these two poles), being the most important contributor to an eerie feel that is on the musical background, but gains much by being boosted by the singing. There is serious musical and recording technique effort to make the tracks sound this eerie though and, when you get the hang of it, this might be the most interesting aspect of this album: checking out the chord progressions, melodies, playing styles and ornamental musical ideas, as well as the effects and techniques applied, with the objective of making it sound eerie and ominous.”
