"Electrick Soul is a timeless-sounding piece of summery optimism and outrageous chops that throws winks at Parliament, Prince, D'angelo and Michael Jackson"
★★★★☆ MOJO
"A love letter to 70's-style funk & soul complete with chattering guitar rhythms, intricate brass arrangements & Decosta's dipping, swooping falsetto"
★★★★☆ 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)
