Feeling the Pinch
2012

REVIEWS

"What's impressive about the new record - and indeed has always stood out about Priest - is the music. On disc, this poet is truly a singer and musician."

- Mark Rheame, CBC

"Uplifting. Accomplished. Sharp. Thoughtful. Brilliant. Down. Highly recommended."

- Daryl Jung, Big Bridge 2012

"This excellently produced album appeals to the musician in all of us poets yet those with a keen ear can absorb more than just toe-tapping tunes. Priest does a fantastic job conveying his literary talent into folk and light rock songs you won't soon forget."

- David Silverberg, Canadian Review of Literature in Performance

"Priest does a fantastic job conveying his literary talent into folk and light rock songs you won't soon forget."

- David Silverberg, Canadian Review of Literature in Performance

"Priest shows a depth and complexity that operates on many levels, raising his performance above a bar-room rant or a wishy-washy poetry reading to an intense experience, something akin to a trance session."

- Lucy Mallows, The Budapest Sun
