Cool, thanks! Both discs are very beautiful, I agree with your admiration for Autumn Grieve. The packaging of the CD are wonderful, I hope that the project announced on her website on the Element of earth will continue soon. Ciao, giampiero@espansuoni

This sensual and subdued voice reminds me Celia Humpris in Tree’s “Garden of Jane Delawny”. This is a very pleasant neo-folk EP with extremely appealing female vocals. Due to its extremely limited edition (21 copies), this album is going to become a little grail for the lovers of this genre. A nice handful of songs. Thank You

Such a beautiful voice, so hushed and evocative. More people should really hear her, cheers, for getting the word out!

There's a timeless quality to her voice that's very appealing. It'll be interesting to see what musical directions Autumn and Richard take in the future.
