Getintothis – “a solo singer and guitarist who packs in considerable energy and geniality to his shows. You’d have to be one very seriously miserable so and so, not to be hooked in by his Stevie Wonder-style vocals, along with that beaming, infectious smile of his.”

Bido Lito – “Stunning looped guitar acrobatics and soulful pop numbers.”

Dave Monks (BBC Introducing Merseyside) – “Wow, what a voice… very soulful.”

Planet Slop – “Simple, but powerful. He has an almost folk-ish sound mixed with some of the most soulful vocals ever heard coming out of the city. Aside from the earworm hook and KingFast’s irresistible voice, the self-created harmonies… elvate it… by the time you reach his falsetto you have all but fallen in love”
