Tim from the Indie Bands Blog wrote a review of my music recently. Here are a couple of highlights:
“A vocal which in some ways reminds me of David Bowie adds a lustre to the brooding presence that emanates from the speakers. There is no hurry here, this is music to spend some thoughtful moments with, when life seems a little messy. The pathos superbly combines the bathos of mental disturbance.”
“Whilst Rowan seeks to encapsulate and create an aural exposition of complex emotional strains and as such plays around with classical composition structures, he doesn’t make this inaccessible and that isn’t very easy to achieve.”

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 Radio & Russian Gothic Radio.
