“Charlie Leavy, from Hook Norton via Leeds, falls neatly into the confessional-girl-with-guitar bracket, displaying the best and worst of that particular niche. Occasionally she slips into melisma and wailing over ragged acoustic strumming, but when she hits the right tone, as on `Patchworks’, she shows she’s got something worth investigating, a sweet, almost folky voice that she pushes just to its limits and no further, and a strong sense of melody. We’d like to hear more of her natural Yorkshire accent in her singing but with a more polished sound on her recent `The Best Damn Ride’, there’s undoubtedly better things ahead for her than opening a four-band bill.”
