The BBC’s Jeremy Vine says “@kirkbrandon is one of our greatest musical geniuses”
gettotthefront.co.uk “Brandon’s vocal is fuller, it is more powerful, it is more tuneful. But what impresses me more is his total clarity; not only vocally but his overall performance – he lives, breathes, screams, shakes these songs out of his body. At times he appears to be in the throws of an exorcism, bent double and shuddering rhythmically”
