Past Reviews:

"Heartfelt vocals..confident melodies.. gorgeous...
Faithfield consistantly seeks beauty in everyday matters"  HOTPRESS


"This is beautiful, straightforward storytelling, saturated in Irish folk traditions but with a keen edge born of Faithfield's days as a punk rocker in Sydney. I was reminded of Paul Kelly's more lyrical excursions, which is a high compliment" WEST AUSTRALIAN


"a commanding stage presence"   DRUM MEDIA

 

"The difference ...is attitude. In a scene infused with sedate melancholy or teeth-gritting angst, his relentlessly upbeat folk-rock courses with positive thinking and surges with vigorous musicality....Faithfield is invigorating and inspiring...." Peter Crawley - IRISH TIMES


"..Engaging...new age kind of guy...Faithfield writes a nice lyric and his music is positive and, at times, irreverent. The punk influence is not entirely hidden: a lot of his songs are short up tempo affairs, kind of power acoustic; if you like...." Alan Brennan-IRISH INDEPENDENT

"...an immense talent and a collection of songs that simply blew me away. I've heard this style of music from independent artists all over the world. Most of it is bland and many times boring for lack of originality. Rory Faithfield is an exception to that experience"   Michael Allison - TheGlobalMuse.com

 

"....aside from the inherent message, you will hear an artist capable of conveying immeasurable emotion and power. Sounding a bit like Brian Ferry of Roxy Music, Rory Faithfield shows much more than mere promise....It would be impossible to listen and not believe that here is an artist ready to break loose. Rory Faithfield is an artist I will be following closely."   Jack Baer - BIGBAER.com
