ClickTheShutter One of the best folk albums I‘ve heard in my entire life.

sam berger Easily one of the albums of the year for me. Henry really takes his cues from classic UK folk and uses it as starting point to develop his own very unique and wonderful sound. Highly, highly recommended to anyone who desires the best in modern singer/songwriting/ guitar playing. If you're like me it's an album that you'll find yourself playing over and over again.

Andre Marc Absolutely stunning album for fans of sophisticated acid folk, with an hommage to Janch, Renbourn, Graham, etc, but highly original. This is one of the best purchases of the year for me. And Henry, thanks for turning me on to Woody Green.

Michael A wonderfully relaxed guitar album, one of the best I've heard for years, in fact. Henry manages to create a very special atmosphere here with just a few instruments. In parts, it reminds me of XTC's folky "Mummer" phase, which is still one of my favourites, but you can hear a lot of influences from the 70's folk Scene here, too. Music for all seasons, not just for spring. Favorite track: False Guidance.

about

"Channelling the ghosts of Jansch and Renbourn through his fingertips, the fluid playing and emotive singing of Yorkshire-born Henry Parker evokes the spirit of the early-60’s folk revival as if it were yesterday." ★★★★★ - RnR

"The Yorkshire based musician displays his guitar virtuosity and confident song-craft. This album is a well-produced and promising debut, and hopefully the first of many. One to watch."
★★★★ - Shindig! Magazine

"Henry has managed to encapsulate the sound of fifty years ago with new songs and a new ear." - Folking.com

"Here we have a distillation of all that has gone before in the folk scene of the 1960s and 70s but not so much ‘made contemporary’ as given a lease of life that can help it strike out on its own." - Folk Radio UK
