“...shades of Jacques Brel and David Bowie in his early glorious prime... Philip Jeays is a real find, just the sort of discovery you're always hoping to make and rarely do.“
DAILY TELEGRAPH

“...only once in a decade do you see a songwriter with such a unique jaundiced line.“
GUARDIAN

“...a singer songwriter whose darkly comic songs, with Sondheimesque tongue-twisting lyrics, have projected him to semi-cult status.“
LONDON EVENING STANDARD


“Songs delivered with a sometimes frightening intensity and an often gleeful amount of bile.“
FINANCIAL TIMES

“Quite simply, 'October' is the sort of album which will be rediscovered in ten years time and treated with the same respect as the likes of Nick Drake.“
GOLDMINE (USA)

“A fresh fearless young singer songwriter whose artistic potential is scary...vulnerable, vitriolic and cruelly observant... Jeays in full, unforgiving flight is some sight.“
HERALD (GLASGOW)

“...superbly crafted songs, written with a poetic sensibility that is imbued with bitter irony and mordant wit... Jeays is unique on the contemporary British music scene.“
MORNING STAR

“...tightly constructed songs which are by turn funny, touching, bitter and sad... Jeays doesn't just sing his songs - he acts them out.“
TATLER

“He is, without doubt, the best songwriter in the country.“
NEWBURY WEEKLY NEWS

“The finest new songwriter Iíve heard for 10 years.“
