Reviews For "The Cooley & Mourne"

"…a remarkable album, beautifully-recorded, sequenced perfectly and Craig and Willoughby have never sounded more confident…vocals are perfect for the songs, bringing a sense of nostalgia, while Brian continues to stand as one of the best guitarists today.
Spill Magazine, USA by Aaron Badgley

The blend of southern US roots and Irish heritage gels perfectly…absolutely delightful listening…their best album so far.
Folking.com by Dai Jeffries

The dream-team partnership of established Nashville songwriter Cathryn Craig and intelligently virtuoso guitarist Brian Willoughby has a thoroughly appealing - and infectious - air of assurance and accomplishment in the relaxed charm of their musicianship.

The new album's unity derives as much from its freshness of execution, as from the consistent quality of its songs and the four brief linking instrumental interludes, are glistening jewels of guitaristic invention.

The album's standout tracks are the limpid closing benediction Bless Your Way, with its gorgeous guitar backdrop, preceded by the heartfelt Do It For Love. But I also find the classic country mode of Take Me With You and All The Way To Denver, and the rootsy banjo-flecked anguish of To The Past, seriously irresistible. Instant replay status each one of them!

Without doubt the album is something of a milestone in Cathryn and Brian's career.
