'Haunting vocals and elegant harp' The Guardian
'Harp and strings blur the border between worlds' The Financial Times
'This is the sound of modern Scotland, as surely as draws on folklore and tradition, Newton's singing and harp at the heart of a singular vision.'
'Rachel Newton is well equipped to take centre stage in her own right and this second solo album is a beauty...fascinating stuff'
