“Warm, tender and completely absorbing, this album showcases beautifully the band’s particular brand of acoustic folk, seamlessly dovetailing the traditional with the contemporary, while intricate guitars and strings and Ian Roland’s characteristically breathy vocals create a wonderful intimacy. Beautiful.” Indiesonics

“A fantastic new release…” The Mystery Train Radio Show

“An absolutely fantastic album! The production is superb, the songs are so varied in style that there is something for everyone. The backing musicians are excellent and overall I found all the tracks very enjoyable.” Doug Welch, BBC Radio Kent

“Ian Roland teamed up with powerful musicians to produce beautiful songs such as the single ‘Gold In The Dust’ which brings an exciting melody focused on the Americana style and with a divine sound…All this combined with the beautiful male vocals and a chorus that further enhances the perfection of the song.” Roadie Music – Blog & Spotify playlist

“With ‘The Wood Wide Web’, Ian Roland has created another eminently listenable album which will draw the listener in to the mellow warmth of his writing. The solicitous use of strings and choral cameos, alongside the imposing production values, appear to be a winning formula with which his role as a purveyor of quality roots music can only flourish.” David Pratt, FATEA Read full review >>>

” ‘The Wood Wide Web’ is a vivid, enthralling celebration of life in all its forms and a lucid love letter to the wilderness…utterly engrossing.” Lucia Crown, REYT GOOD MAGAZINE Read full review >>>
