People Poems

The new EP 'Letters' available to preorder now


“...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

"...a beautiful acoustic persona... captivating and mesmerising" - Jac Holloway, Noizze

"...blessing each venue and crowd with his heart-breaking lyrics, smooth vocals, and soft melodies" - Rebecca Schott, NE Volume

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