CRITIC REVIEWS

Consequence of Sound

With top-notch production framing technical and emotive musicianship, Fay recaptures his sound as a lucky few remember it.

musicOMH

There are moments here of unashamed dignity, compassion and humanity that are very much welcome in increasingly cynical and austere times.

Pitchfork

Beautiful, patient and poignant, Life Is People is an expert singer-songwriter album, as dependent upon keen insight as it is upon meticulous arrangement.

80
No Ripcord

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. 

70
PopMatters

One half of Fay’s Life is People proves worthy of such a long wait.
