'The Broken Leg Sessions' EP Review: 24/7 Magazine, 2010.

“You may remember Johnny Powell from his time fronting neo-folkies, The Dharma Bums. His new solo project picks up where that band left off and runs headlong into a netherworld of found sounds and harrowing melodies. With a much more developed and settled voice, ‘The Broken Leg Sessions’ is a beautiful testament to the power of melancholy and madness, where songs like ‘The Contributor’ are so poignant it hurts. And scattered amongst the soulful emissions are strange and wonderful sounds – including pillow kicks, curtains being drawn, wallets flicking and, best of all, Sylvia Plath’s graveyard (!) – all of which evoke an atmosphere that is, at once, organic and eerie.”

This is a Rural Colours release (RC018).

"Brilliantly eccentric, but eminently listenable outsider indie for the soul.” (Piccadilly Records)

"Johnny Powell, is still teetering on the edge of troubled genius with this new clutch of soul-scraping, larynx-wobbling freak-folk vignettes."
(24/7 Magazine - 4.5/5)

"Exciting times lay ahead for Johnny Powell and co."
(BBC Introducing)
