An immensely brave and honest record.
Laundry Day Records - October 2016
This is a spectacularly good debut album. In fact, it’s arguably better than some albums seasoned performers put out long after they’ve made their appearance on the scene.
Brett David Stewart, The Independent Spotlight - October 2016
A sense of melody that is both brilliant in its architecture and daring in the willingness to go places unexpected.
Michael Wheeler, Current Music Thoughts - November 2016
This album will pull emotions out of you that you never knew you were capable of feeling...every note is played with an immense amount of conviction.
Jamsphere review of Soft Ledges debut album - October 2016
...The album packs a far bigger punch, both musically and emotionally, than a lot of albums released this year from more established acts. It is a bold and confident record with a greater depth than you would generally expect from a duo.
Belwood Music - November 2016
Truly passionate and boldly innovative...unyielding in their independence of expression and creativity.
Beyond the Record - November 2016
Shelley hits the big note perfectly...a subtle lead up to a powerful climax. The rawness in her vocal tone reminded me of Patti Smith and Grace Slick
April Reviews the Tunes - October 2016
The songs featured within the band’s debut makes me think of artists as diverse as Sonic Youth and Elliott Smith...
The Bandcamp Diaries - review and interview w. Shelley Miller - October 2016
...It’s dark on the surface but I get this sense, this twinge of redemption at the very end.
earthings! - November 2016
Think Dylan's "Ballad of a Thin Man" with more dissonance and less cryptic lyrics.
