"It's lovely when singer-songwriters can actually sing and write songs...Gus does both with effortless ease, combining aching lyrics with tender guitars and cotton wool percussion.

His knack for an unusual metaphor, spine-tingling harmony or heart-breaking lyric won't let you go." 

Nottingham Evening Post
