There is a lived-in sense of rawness to the artist and his lyrics, rife with authenticity and grit. . . bursting with personality and character. . . the UK indie scene has always had room for unique characters, and Matt Jacques and his authentic perspective and writing should soon establish him as the latest.” – CLOUT
