Easy to listen to and beautifully arranged – ****” – Heaven Magazine Nov/Dec 2014 Holland) ““A collection of wonderful, timeless pop songs – ****” – (Lust For Life magazine, November 2014 Holland) “miraculous….timeless 9/10″ – (8 Weekly Jan 2015 Holland) ““Each time you listen, you’re being sucked into this wonderous world more deeply. Fascinating album – ****” – (Jazzism magazine, October 2014 Holland) “Surely one of the best albums of the year – *****” – (Ctrl Alt Country, November 2014 Belgium) “Nobody Knows Anything is probably one of the best pop records of 2014, a record that doesn’t just rely on the big moments and works its way through amazingly crafted details” – (Music & Riots Magazine Jan 2015) “This is no pastiche, but a fine example of musical heritage woven through a composition that somehow keeps giving, with layered vocals, catchy riffs, wonky piano and a variety of other sounds that come and go to create a compelling song with a heartwarming premise. It’s no wonder It Falls Together topped our poll this week.” – (Fresh On The Net, November 2014 UK) “….exquisite song writing……an excellent album that is thought provoking, musically exciting and full of surprises – highly recommended” – (Artree Jan 2015 UK) “Overall the album is put together wonderfully…… another album that ticks all the right boxes. He certainly hasn’t lost any of his edge over the years, instead consistently reinventing his music and experimenting with sound.
Alex may claim that Nobody Knows Anything but I’m certain this is a great album.” – (Spiral Earth November 2014 UK) Praise For Woodditton Wives Club "laid-back but infectious songcraft..." - Time Out "....an old-fashioned troubadour in the strictest sense. Strumming gentle folk songs on his guitar, his warm and soulful voice conjures up memories of sun-kissed summer nights out on the lawn." - London Metro "a wonderfully fresh and perceptive look at a world many of us will recognise" - Folk Radio UK "From instrumentation to songwriting to Highton’s endearing voice, this album is beautifully arranged....8/10" - Neon Filler After growing up in Liverpool, and then ten years or so in London, Alex decamped with his family to rural Cambridgeshire. What he found was an England he didn't know existed and a life he didn't know he was looking for. With no expectations at all he wrote and recorded a bunch of songs that chronicled his journey from the city to the country.
Just stuff about what was going on around him, his wife, his kids, breathing in the fresh air and staring into the abyss… The album was recorded at Andy Ramsay’s (Stereolab) studio in South London with Jonny Bridgwood (Morrisey, Kathryn Williams) on Double Bass and Howard Monk (Billy Mahonie) on drums. www.alexhighton.com www.facebook.com/alexhightonmusic DEBUT ALBUM "WOODDITTON WIVES CLUB" OUT NOW VIA www.alexhighton.com, iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon and all other major music outlets.
