“A blast of originality, primal energy and musical magic in a market saturated with cloned artists and homogenised songs”

Gerry Diver
“…a welcome and singular addition to the list of newbloods reinvigorating British folk music…Non-trad acoustic roots delivered with an edgy, risk-taking sonic boldness.”

Nigel Williamson Uncut Magazine
“Awena is a remarkable and totally original record, a triumph that could well turn out to be career defining in announcing the arrival of Wes Finch as an exceptional song-smith.”

Folk Radio
“A potent combination at the edge of modern music making and, I suspect, something of a game changer.”

FATEA records
“Awena is a brilliant record that makes me think of Villagers and The Unthanks meeting in the Twilight Zone.”

Folk Radio
“Disturbingly brilliant.”
