Reviews"Dynamic duo of multi-instrumentalists, Michelle Holding and Bonz, are a joy to listen and talk to. They will engage you with colourful life stories and an eclectic set ranging from knee-slapping Americana to creepy and raw tales of selkies via Jake Thackray and Woody Guthrie. There's a lot of instrumental variety, too - with dobro, concertina, banjo, guitar and harmonies" The F Spot Live Sessions
"Blessed with a distinctive voice and an uncanny ability to mix together both English and American acoustic folk music... I can't listen to one song without the music provoking thoughts of loves, lusts, life, death, and, finally, true, raw, unprecedented sentiment. As stated in the album's booklet, the music really does come from somewhere deep in Michelle, regardless of geography, and it would be a shame if it's praises weren't sung far and wide."
