With top-notch production framing technical and emotive musicianship, Fay recaptures his sound as a lucky few remember it.
There are moments here of unashamed dignity, compassion and humanity that are very much welcome in increasingly cynical and austere times.
Beautiful, patient and poignant, Life Is People is an expert singer-songwriter album, as dependent upon keen insight as it is upon meticulous arrangement.
He has come up with a gem of a record, heartfelt and true, that hopefully will get him some of the attention he richly deserves.
One half of Fay’s Life is People proves worthy of such a long wait.
