"There’s no shortage of singer-songwriters cranking out hummable tunes these days. But if you’ve had your fill of morose cabin-dwellers and feisty firebrands, and you’re looking instead for ravishing melodies full of magical twists and turns and sumptuous harmonies, then Louise Le May is the only game in town."- Chris Evans, Curve Ball Presenter
