About

“Vocally, People Poems somewhat resemble a dream pairing of Antony Hegarty and Joanna Newsom... It's powerful, soul-bearing stuff, a rewarding listen and possessed of an uncommon and individual beauty.” -Brendan Campbell, North Leeds Life

"...this genuinely beautiful EP brings out the best in People Poems" -Jac Holloway, Noizze

"...the delightful vocal harmonies sending a shiver down one's spine" -Mike Price, Vibrations Magazine
