"Electrick Soul is a timeless-sounding piece of summery optimism and outrageous chops that throws winks at Parliament, Prince, D'angelo and Michael Jackson"

★★★★☆ Sunday Express
"He is a natural storyteller and relaxed showman. By the time his band had finished their second set, he had encouraged his audience to dance amid the tables and chairs"
★★★★☆ The Times (Pizza Express Live review)
