Well known as percussionist, drummer, guitarist, singer and songwriter the multi-talented Tammy Payne has any number of projects up her sleeve. Jukes is one of the best of those, a collection of smartly-written original songs each finding its own artful voice with the lounging shades of classic pop cleverly sketched by her all-star collaborators and her own haunting and evocative vocals.
“Aah… lovely. Think sugar-stained guitars so laid-back they’re almost on rewind, ambling hand-in-hand with Tammy Payne’s Patti Smith-if-she-had-more-X-chromosones-vocals” — NME
“Cryptically lovely short stories that grab you within two lines.” — Uncut
“Former Soul starlet makes Folk-Pop gem… Payne’s elegant songs blend acoustic strum with post-punk drone, Spaghetti Western twang and Cosmic Soul.” — Q Magazine
“It is inspiring to witness a female vocalist attempting to experiment beyond the conventions traditionally set by the music industry.”
– Aesthetica Magazine
“Spine-tingling guitar patterns set in motion an album that has the jarring simplicity of classic Elektra with a 21st-Century twist.” — Daily Mirror
