"Melodies to rival Neil Finn in his 'Private Universe' pomp. You can't also help but notice a McCartneyinfluence in Simmons' songwriting which is attracting collaborations with Chris Difford (Squeeze) amongst others. Seriously one to watch."

"Beautifully ambitious. One to watch"

"Simmons’ voice can climb to Cat Stevens heights or dive down deep into Nick Drake darkness, but no matter where he’s singing from, he employs the kind of heart-stopping finesse that could transform a crowded room into a reverent hush in seconds....his songs are redolent with heart, grace and the kind of phrasing that evokes everyone from Neil Finn to David Gray"
- STEREO EMBERS
"A breath of fresh air."
- THE TIMES
