about

May this record serve as the chronicle of a year.
...

"Royal Blue Days is long and shape-shifting, sometimes sad and sometimes sure and always ready to surprise. In this way it is as successful a testament to a single year that music will ever manage, ebbing and flowing with mood and the moon, settling on no firm conclusion beyond the steady flow of time and our uncertain position within it. You get the impression that these songs were recorded because they needed to be, loaded into one mammoth album because they were meant to be, shared so they might help us in the same way they helped him."

"A entertaining and lovely display of the power [of] musical juxtaposition. Absolutely the sort of album that is most rewarding to hear from beginning to end with devoted attention."

"There is a wide variety of sounds and styles here, it's best to listen to this lengthy album a few times to absorb it all, from it's atmospheric no-wave to it's mountain folk. A top recommendation."
(www.themodernfolk.net)

"What you are to listen to (which I sincerely hope that do) when you press play is to hear the experiences of this artist–their hopes and feelings and dreams and visions all showcased in the beautifully arranged melodies and haunting vocals. Rich melodies and personal narratives set to a wide array of musical arrangements–each composition an experience, a memory and a feeling."

"Atmospheric folk music that balances warmth, twang, and noise."
