Band Info


"One of Britain's greatest Singer-Songwriters...
Bob Harris BBCR2

The Independent on Sunday
Simmy Richman. Sunday, 11 January 2009
"Fairytales, folk stories, enchanted forests and fiery lakes - so far so promising, as Angie Palmer's latest perfectly crafted offering gets a Proper release in the January lull.
'Meanwhile' is further proof that what "the British Lucinda Williams" lacks in Americana credentials (she's from Preston), she makes up for with a dues-paying busking-in-Paris past. "The mind has monster great and small/Just waiting for the night to fall" she sings on "Slip Away From Me". Palmer's night should fall more often.
Pick of the album: The spooky and epic 'Weeping Wood'"

"Atmospheric country-folk-rock ....Worth turning the lights down low for"
The Sun ****

"Strong on haunting lyrics and atmospherics"
Rock'n'Reel ****

"This is an exquisite collection...a definite one for my albums of the year"
John Tobler ***** Album Of The Month. Country Music People.

"Has a delicious hair-in-the-voice approach that gives her a tough edge over more fey contemporaries...Impressive"
Rob Hughes *** Uncut magazine

"Fine English Americana from a substantial storytelling talent...exudes a convincing fluency in style that's rare among home grown performers." HMV Choice July 2006

"Rare in this world of introspective songwriters Palmer has a truly narrative style at times recalling Dylan and consummately literate... utterly convincing." Acoustic Magazine

"A lyrically sharp album with gritty vocals and powerful music that makes you sit up and listen!" ****Maverick

"A gorgeous, thrusting chunk of guitar strewn Americana that sounds as though it has been torn from the Best of Dylan songbook." MoJo

"Striking fourth release from Preston based songstress... the music flows beautifully, at times recalling the soundscapes of Joni Mitchell's Hejira or Van Morrison's Veedon Fleece." Americana UK

"'Tales of Light & Darkness' is a superb album with quality at every turn... very highly recommended." Fish Records

"This is a magical album, and to resist is madness. Go buy and enrich your lives beyond measure." HiFi Plus

"An album with quality stamped all over it." Blues Matters
