Reviews of album The Shoreham Sessions (released 2018)
‘With the warmth of an old field recording you’re sure to keep returning to, a simply beautiful album.’ – Folk Radio
‘Like many people nowadays, and certainly every DJ on freeform WFMU Radio, I listen to a wide variety of music, new and old. I particularly love music that is imbued with the feel of the traditional yet approaches the material with a fresh perspective, resulting in a sound that is rooted in both. The Knights Project hits this sweet spot, creating beautiful and deeply heartfelt music…I’m grateful for any new music, like that of The Knights Project, that reassures me not only that the elemental nature of music is not only alive, but very much thriving.’
–Jeffrey Davison, WFMU
