Review of "Dandelion"

"I played this lady's CD twice tonight on a long drive home. I don't remember when I was so amazed at a singer / songwriter's work.

"No whining platitudes, strong stories and great arrangements - and she sings from the soul."

Review of  "From Psychedelia to Sonnets" CD with Ashley Hutchings

 

" 'Til The Time We Meet Again' is sung beautifully by Mills.

… 'A Song of Two Bridges', where Angell and Mills alternate the lead vocals is another highlight…"

"A fine example of Becky's exceptional songwriting ability, & serves as a captivating introduction for those who may have missed her previous work"

TOPIC FOLK CLUB

Review of Becky Mills solo gig

 

"Becky Mills came to us at the Topic as a late stand-in following a last-minute cancellation, her name suggested by an agent who heard of our plight. We are used to taking a chance on little-known performers, and are often amply rewarded for doing so. As on this occasion: out of the blue, she gave us a night to remember, shining in every department: her songs, voice, delivery and rapport with the audience were second to none.

"Becky’s overriding strength is in the quality of her songwriting. Some of her songs are about the small, things to which we can all relate: the promise of an early spring day, a family trip to the seaside, a lullaby: these linger long in the memory, popping in to the mind every now and then, fresh yet familiar; others about major life changing events such as Pretty Young Things, a song about an unwanted teenage pregnancy, but it encompasses so much more: a real gem, one of those powerful haunting songs which stay with us for all time. Lovely imagery in some, the hard cruelty of life in others. All superbly crafted. Her excellent CD  “Dandelion” is one of those “must-haves”.

 

"Becky has now become a regular in our booking schedules: it’s difficult to understand why her name doesn’t appear in more listings of folk clubs and festivals. It should."

"Every track is a joy. Becky's singing and writing abilities are amazing - and the absence of whining platitudes so welcome!"

Review of "Dandelion"

 

"Every now and again an album comes along that totally lifts the spirits.

And ‘Dandelion’ is exactly that type of album - and so much more."

Review of "Dandelion"

 

"It's always a treat when an album grabs your attention with the opening bars of the first track. Mills has the perfect voice for folk... at its most pure, Mills' voice washes over you like a gentle sea breeze on a warm beach.

 

"For a first album Dandelion exudes maturity in terms of the songwriting and confidence in the singing. "
