Q Magazine

“Though they're residing in south London, The Fruitful Earth peddle a vintage-jukebox brand of chooglin' rock'n'roll that sounds perfect for a different south all together...perfect accompanyment for an evening in a smoke-thickened, sweat-drenged American pool hall.”

Jamie Skey

Classic Rock

“Connects middle-era Beatles with glam-era Bowie plus Little Feat, Elton John and the Beach Boys.”

Clash

“Effortlessly moving pop songs.”

Robin Murray

Listen With Monger

“These guys are seriously talented musicians & songwriters but most importantly they have enough soul to feel every note they churn out which is what makes this such an awe inspiring album.”

Roland Monger

The Observer

“Jaunty piano inviting Elton John and Carole King comparisons.”

Killian Fox

MOJO, The Music Magazine - A British singer-songwriter debut of distinction

“An album that impresses right from the opening track and then just gets better as Blair stomps into Sometimes You Just Don't Know in scintillating fashion before creating a soulful intro to Last Train, a multi-shaped song about leaving that Carole King might have penned had she ever been mildly influenced by Kate Bush. And it's those piano intros that grab the listener every time, acting as carefully constructed aural flyers, each prophesying that something is about to emerge that shouldn't be missed. Blair's potential is undeniable and a major label could soon be offering a lengthy contract.”

Fred Dellar

The Word

“I'm not sure there's anyone else doing this at the moment: a woman-and-piano combo modelled on Carole King, Judee Sill and Elton John circa 'Madman Across The Water'. It's a pleasure to hear those whoomphing great '70s piano intros, the flamboyant spread of the hands on the keys...An instantly likeable record.”

Kate Mossman

“Imagine Jimi Hendrix was a woman, played piano, could sing like Kate Bush and had The Band as her backing band...”
