he finest song-writer of his generation” – John Peel
“For me, listening to James Yorkston’s music is like coming across the interesting-looking person on the fringes of a party. Before you know it, you’ve spent the evening listening to their compelling tale. There’s a quiet confidence in his craft; his singing, the words and instrumentation, all blend seamlessly….”
– Philip Selway, Radiohead
“One of the most influential singer / songwriters on the Scottish folk scene” – The Scotsman
“Yorkston has reached a state of grace that writers can spend for ever trying to attain: songs that sound not so much written as carefully retrieved from your own subconscious, played with an intuition bordering on telepathy. What more could you ask for?” – Pete Paphides, The TimesBook Ticket
