A wonderful debut album from former Joyce the Librarian front man Martin Callingham. Tracks from the album have already attracted airpaly from the likes of Gideon Coe and Tom Robinson.
" Superb Autumnal fare, its gilded arrangement is perfect for long country walks, crushing leaves as you go."
- CLASH MAGAZINE
"Portland Square is a beautiful number...a dark, Dickensian ode that resonates with the sombre mood of an English winter spent in yearning. The pièce-de-résistance has to be the spine-tingling finalé, as huge harmonies rise from the depths of a sparse skin-and-bones track to reach out and envelop the listener in a sinister crescendo. Staggering."
- GLASSWERK - Portland Square was featured as TRACK OF THE DAY
"Portland Square is a warning to prepare for an Alt-Folk revitalization and the only thing you can do is embrace it" 8/10
- NUIT MAGAZINE
"...tonight’s gig feels like a glimpse into the soul of Callingham’s material and everybody in attendance leaves feeling lucky to have been part of such a special evening."
- SONGWRITING MAGAZINE (Review of pre-release warm-up show)
"Littered with uplifting riffs and gently driving rhythms encouraged by bass, drums and guitars, this album is a shrewd selection of polyphonic musings."
- FATEA MAGAZINE
"English alt folk singer songwriter Martin Callingham melts me into a puddle with his stringy, pastoral ballad Knots."
