LOVE MUSIC LOVE LIFE… ‘It’s impossible not to listen to this album all the way through, and the craftsmanship and style is reminiscent of artists such the great Jimmy Webb, Roy Orbison and Neil Diamond. The raw, honest quality to the album is truly an eye (or rather, ear) opener and really is a remarkable piece of work. It would be a sin to not have this incredible musical memoir in your collection’.
MUSIC WEEK… ‘ A refreshingly down-to-earth, beautifully crafted and soulfully uplifting listen, One eye open, one eye closed is most definitely one to have in your collection.
ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE… ‘Livingstone’s highly assured debut co-opts the authenticating US twangery of US guitarist, Doug Pettibone (Lucinda Williams band), with the widescreen, orchestral narratives and hard-luck balladry beloved of tasteful left-field crooners from Scott Walker to Richard Hawley… The overall talent on show here promises an intriguing future’.
INTAMISSION… His music would sit comfortably next to that of Nick Cave, Richard Hawley and Glen Campbell. It will surely make its way on to your favourite playlist
