"Musically superb, absolutely fascinating and utterly charming"

ShireFolk

"A genuinely inspiring work"

R2 Magazine - review of The Wren And The Salt Air

"The EP is revelatory. Sturgeon's canvases depict a place that, while uninhabited by permanent residents, is home to a fauna of uttermost isolation. David Attenborough would probably approve on several musical and natural history counts, not least because The Wren And The Salt Air is a poeticised and rough-edged portrait, not a romanticised one."

"**** Jenny is a singer-songwriter who brings together the old and new with a rare skill... From The Skein is one of the best debut albums you'll ever hear... I repeat - this is a knockout debut"

R2 Magazine

"Scot Jenny Sturgeon is as close to an organic folksinger/songwriter as you can get. She absorbs the culture, essence, stories and legends of her native region and manufactures them into inspired songs and tunes which reflect much of the natural world around her."

"Jenny Sturgeon releases her debut album ‘From The Skein’ ... and it is stunning. The integrated components of music, voice and lyrics make this album a must-have. The magical quality of Jenny’s voice gives tangible feeling to the songs, the haunting lyrics range from the darker sides of folklore and legend through historical narrative to observing the human condition, the dreamlike, expressive and lingering melodies – together the combination creates a whole that holds you in its embrace..."

"In From The Skein, Jenny Sturgeon has clearly decided to challenge herself. That challenge has been well worthwhile and sees Jenny push her music far beyond the realms of singer/songwriter, to a wider sphere where words, music and creativity combine in an inspired and thoroughly engaging work."

"Jenny Sturgeon is wonderful singer who can change the atmosphere in the room with her affecting delivery. This is a very special record"

Boo Hewerdine

"Jenny Sturgeon's impressive debut set draws much of its inspiration from the rich folklore of her home region, the north east of Scotland, as her thoughtful songs interweave elements of traditional music and much more unexpected genres such as drum and bass and Indian Carnatic singing. "Maiden Stone" and "Culan" are particularly impressive creations... Splendid stuff."

"Singer/songwriter Jenny Sturgeon sings with a confidence and warmth that endears her to listeners far beyond her native Aberdeenshire. Alongside beautiful interpretations of traditional song, Jenny writes and performs her own songs with a strong traditional feel delighting audiences wherever she sings."

Aaron Jones (Litha, Kate Rusby Band)

"The finest ambassadors in the north east... gorgeous music...fantastic!"
