Rob’s single Stone Dead and Rising (a taut and vigorous track) proved popular with readers of my Fresh On The Net Blog and among listeners of our BBC Introducing Mixtape. Call him a songwriter or call him a singer – both of which he patently is – but not a singer-songwriter. He’s so much better than that.
Tom Robinson – BBC 6 Music
Good songs that are delivered very well.

Collections is a fine example of his ability to weave unconventional elements into familiar genres. His searching vocals call to mind Tim Buckley while he shows commercial potential during the chorus, in which his voice soars over a gorgeous chiming guitar lick.
