“I implore you check him out, don’t let me down, because this guy is rather special.” Americana UK 9/10

“From the moment he steps on stage, Corcoran perspires authenticity in that fluent way that a hundred record execs have tried and failed to manufacture”. Anne Frankenstein: Jazz FM (UK)

“A masterclass in Americana music…well, Americana with a Dublin accent”

Dublin troubadour Rob Corcoran has sailed the high seas of love, heartbreak and excess, and (so far) lives to tell through his gripping, visceral persona. His confessional, yet toe-tappingly catchy songs are further invigorated by the brilliance of his alt-country super-group, the Necessary Evils. After many years as a not-to-be-missed live band they released their debut studio album ‘Inverse Alchemy’ to much acclaim in 2017.

A hugely respected figure on the London folk & roots scene, and leading light of the legendary Lantern Society folk club in Farringdon’s Betsey Trotwood, Simon Stanley Ward is a country singer with a strong streak of the surreal running through his veins. Sounding like the original cowboy crooner – a perfect cross between Neil Young and Charlie Rich, with a high lonesome voice to match- this consummate entertainer’s songs don’t always go where you expect…

Proper country music delivered with style. The album opener “Monster Song” is quite simply one of the best country songs that this reviewer has heard in many a year. “ – Americana UK

“Home grown talent! It sounded wonderful!” – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
