“Stereo Stories is such a powerful and unique concept. Audiences love the music and they love the stories. Wonderful writing: funny, poignant, wry; mixed with songs. It all comes together in a compelling and hugely satisfying way!” – Loraine Callow, Programming Co-ordinator, Williamstown Literary Festival
“Stereo Stories has emerged from a melting pot of writers and musicians to become one of the most interesting ways for people to enjoy, understand, and connect with the live performance of songs that have been pivotal in people’s lives. The writing is as polished as the musicians are professional, and I have no hesitation in recommending Stereo Stories as a performance piece for a festival, an afternoon’s entertainment, or as the centre piece of an arts exhibition.” – Michael Stewart, Director, Newport Folk Festival , Melbourne
“A song’s not a song without a bit of your life wrapped around it.” Steven Carroll, The Art Of The Engine Driver (p248)
