Geva Alon – "In The Morning Light"
"Absolutely Brilliant" Bob Harris BBC Radio 2, 2012
"This latest from Geva Alon slips by with such impressive crazy horse - via - R.E.M effortlessness...In the morning light 10 airily produced epistles are a vehicle for Alon's flights of instinctual, pealing pleads - Neil young via Ira Kaplan - and a distinctive singing voice which channels Jose Gonzales and America's Gerry Beckley." MOJO Magazine 2012
"IN THE MORNING LIGHT is an album of subtle guitar heroics and immersing songwriting that really ought to bring him into international attention."
R2 Rock & Reel Magazine 2012
"In The Morning Light charts path through introspective soul-searching set to Byrdsian harmonies and catchy hooks, like Fleet Foxes with McCartney-lite sensibilities, the floaty "I Wonder If She's Fine" and the sombre "Come Here Anytime" veers towards Nick Drake territory."She Calls My Name" recalls Fables-era R.E.M". UNCUT 2012
