Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the British singer/songwriter and former member of Rachel Unthank & The Winterset. Hyperboreans is the coming-of-age album for Jackie. Produced by her brother Jim Moray and featuring a title track written for her by Alasdair Roberts, it sizzles with a new confidence and maturity. Her uniquely beautiful vocal comes to the fore throughout the album adding a new freshness to traditional songs including `The Pleasant Month Of May' and `Young Leonard'. There is a show-stopping and deeply moving rendition of 'Past Caring' based on a poem by Australian Henry Lawson as well as a joyfully breezy cover of 'Birthday' by The Sugarcubes. The album concludes with an unforgettable performance of 'May The Kindness' by little-known Devon songwriter Dave Wood. One Little Indian.

Format: Audio CD
This CD has it all - derring-do, redemption, humour, perfidy, murder, gallantry - and lyrics combined with fine traditional musicianship which I believe will bring a tear to the most jaundiced music lover's eye

Traditional folk? I think it's fair to call it that. Certainly not as left-field as the Unthanks (from whence she hailed) or Alasdair Roberts, two of my other favorite contemporary folk outfits, but none the worse for that.

Great tunes, beautiful lyrics, magnificent vocals, inspiring harmonies and brilliant melodies from Jackie Oates and her accompanists. What's not to like?
