Stillness reviewed by Oliver Arditi

...creating soundworlds that are awash with a sense of light and clarity...I don’t think that even conventionally inclined listeners will need to work too hard to hear the beauty in this intelligent and involving album.

From Oliver Arditi's lovely, thoughtful review of Stillness in the Mirror.
