A complex and compelling record, it is his most personal yet, demonstrating his versatility and maturity in approaching the issues of emotional turmoil and vulnerability. Poetic, literate and musically diverse, listen to Kempston mature into one of the most gifted songwriters and acoustic guitarists working in Scotland today.
The album played against a backdrop of rapid-fire bodhran and superb finger-picked acoustic guitar, showcases the poetry that always runs through Kempston’s lyrics, complex but repays upon repeated listens — Russell Leadbetter, The Herald Scotland
Very nice album, we certainly enjoyed it — Iain Anderson, BBC Radio Scotland
