4 1/2 stars '...amazing...a classic album...' Maverick Magazine

4 stars'...a surfeit of gorgeous tunes.' Hi-Fi Choice

'...simply great songs performed by a breathtaking singer.' Rock'n'Reel

'Dear River is taking its place right alongside Almanac as one of my most treasured albums.' Simon Holland, folkradio

Full of contrasting dynamics and a broad cavalcade of emotions 'Dear River' is a fascinating exploration of self, place and people which sees Emily blend her own story into the wider joys and sorrows gleaned from her rigorous researches into others' experiences of travel and emigration. With producer Calum Malcolm (The Blue Nile) at the helm, the result is a beautiful, sensitive, provocative and at times surprising album.

'I'm so happy with this album.' says Emily, barely containing her excitement, 'The whole concept means so much to me and although the songs are quite personal, they also feel like they could be other people's stories - it's the best recording we've done.'

Watch Emily and the band perform 'Ghost Narrative' from the new album. It was filmed in rehearsals for their recent sold out show at London's Union Chapel.
