‘She must surely now be considered among the highest echelons of the modern wave of British folk acts…  Devling into her adopted home, the west country of England, for influence and inspiration, she’s added guile, mystery, quaintness and indeed eccentricity to the alluring charm and simplistic style at the crux of her initial appeal…before you know it you have been sucked completely into the album’s quirky, faintly unearthly atmosphere.  Which I guess is what she intended all along.’ Colin Irwin, fRoots
‘What’s most impressive here is the way the arrangements and instrumentation weave together so seamlessly…comparisons with June Tabor are apt.’ Uncut ****

‘Whether seductively delivering stalwarts like Sweet Nightingale and Brigg Fair or linking with The Claque on Four Pence A Day and Marrow Bones, it’s the rustic beauty of Oates’ voice that enthrals.’ Mojo

‘Hers is such a different world that whenever I hear [her] I just want to be part of it’ Word

‘Oates remains the sweetest voice of her generation of English folkies’ Indepenedent On Sunday ****

‘Oates has emerged as a frontrunner among the new generation of Brit folkies, marked out by the purity of her voice…An exquisite piece of
chamber folk……makes for an atmosphere of rare enchantment’ The Observer

‘Standing out from English folk’s remarkable new wave, Oates has the finest voice of them all…Saturnine shows Oates at the top of her game’ Independent On Saturday [album of the week].

‘Charming, cool and tasteful’ The Guardian
