"Ted Barnes is a craftsman. He is the architect of delicate yet durable works of beauty. he has an ear for fine details and hidden depths; defining that sweetest place between melancholy and the sweetest hope you could imagine"
Beth Orton

"the songs are like glass marble worlds that clink next to each other and should be put in your pocket and carried around with you all day"
Kathryn Williams

"It is not often that you hear an artist's heartbeat in something they've created, usually it gets lost in the process. It's clear on one listen that a "dark night of the soul" has been captured on tape. Ted is a unique light in British music, a law unto himself"
