Shipcote – Local Stars reviews

“The laid back presentation of the songs on this album creates a lovely cosy atmosphere. Some beautiful songs that show Graham Shipcote’s wonderful talent 100%. ” 

Freddy Celis, Rootstime /Belgium, July 2021

“Rather lovely and thought provoking tales from the mind of the King of Geordicana. For the uninitiated Shipcote treads a lovely path between Old-Timey Country Music, & gentle singer-songwriter fare.

Alan Harrison, Rocking Magpie, June 2021

‘Pop Pickers – Shipcote & Friends 2021 review

Not normally the most prolific of recording artists, this is Shipcote’s second release of 2021 ….. and; as he has nervously told me several times ……. a bit different from anything he’s done before ….. and he’s done a lot!
That said, as soon as you hear Shippy’s warm and melancholic tones on the sad opening track Lonely Nights you know you are on safe ground; but the gentle Caribbean-lite guitar play, shakers and producer/ main friend Martin Stephenson in the background; make for a delightful few minutes; and not for the last time on Pop Pickers either
