"Most hip-folkies tread the well worn path of revivalism, forgetting to forge a new path all of their own. One man foraging a lonesome trail is John Stammers, who not only creates beautiful and beguiling tales of love 'n' loss, but also manages to create folk-tales of a very modern place. A place that knows no boundaries. A place that we've all been to... but will never see on a map. In amongst the Celtic drones, the ghosts of traditional ballads, lies something of the Appalachian mountains and songs of the creeks and peaks."
