PRAISE FOR THE SLOW SHOW
“Building from gentle, placid Americana to enormous choruses driven by the added bonus of a colliery brass band, The Slow Show have a deeply emotional impact” – Clash
“…a cocktail of The Tindersticks, The National (they are, after all, named from one of their songs), Lou Reed and Bowie, but without an obvious comparison to any of them” – folkradio.co.uk
“What a voice. What an absolutely stunning voice. The Slow Show vocalist Rob Goodwin has one of the most mesmerising vocal styles you will ever listen to” – nativemonster.com
