Critical Praise

Scottish Daily Express [logo]

“A refined, elegant yet dark affair. Merchant has recently turned 50, yet a new collection, indebted to a pinsharp set of musicians, shows her at the height of her powers as a vocalist and songwriter.”

Album of the Week

“A set of songs that seem like an extended and quite brilliant conversation with herself. This is an album about female resilience, beautifully delivered in Merchant’s pure, fluting tunes and brimming with wit, insight and compassion.”

“Merchant’s artistry remains formidable.”

Sun [logo]

“Merchant continues to grow as an artist. A soulful, touching album, meeting life’s big issues head on. ‘Giving Up Everything’ is the most beautiful, bittersweet song I have heard in a long time.”
