Coley Garratt’s soulful take on alt-folk has won him praise from all quarters- a slot at the Green Man festival was quickly followed with radio support from Tom Robinson on 6 Music and Gary Crowley on GLR. His perfectly constructed, poignant songs are given delicate, economic support by his excellent band.
