Rock ‘n’ Reel Review Alyth ***** ‘People like me’ (Navigator Records) “McCormack’s voice combines the purity of Joan Baez and the power of Martha Sebestyen, on arrangements that are at times lush but never pompous, enveloping the senses with warmth and splendour….. (and) In spite of the diverse nature of the song sources, there’s a cohesive and unified tone to this record. The music is exquisitively produced and sung with heart. By tastefully and effortlessly transcending genres, this fresh recording should win the hearts of listeners across the globe. Gerry Quinn. Irish Examiner Review 09 **** Alyth People like me (Navigator Records) **** MAVERICK MAGAZINE Alyth – People like me A partly Gaelic / Celtic folk, acoustic subtle and charming album, modern and trad songs combine to great effect.
