aLICE jAGO  RTE / RAAP BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST FOLK / ROOTS BURSARY WINNER 2011

Her Debut Album was recorded in a log cabin in Co Cavan coproduced with Karl Odlum and mastered by TIm Martin @ Windmill Lane.

The title tune is a slow sway with transcendental middle-eight, ‘Cotton On Girl’ a self- administered slap across the chops stitched with banjo, handclaps and communal choruses. Both feel like they were written 200 years ago and may well be written again 200 years from now. Jago also seems to have an instinct for just the right modulation required to lift a song out of merit into distinction. She does waltzes, she does shuffles,she does winsome and wistful and exasperated and lovelorn, often within the same verse. Alice Jago is a girl you don’t hear everyday.” Peter Murphy- Hotpress.

”Breezy & full of the kind of freshness that renders a radio signal radioactive...
— Irish Times

She’s a songwriter distinctly in control of her own voice and its one that imitates sweet secrets well worthy of the listeners cocked ear.A spirit stiring debut ***

...Beautifully produced.. exquisite debut .. a breezier Gillian Welch, a folkier Rickie Lee Jones ,a touch of Dusty on the vocal’..****
— Hotpress Magazine
Neat rhyming couplets and louche-limbed melodies peeping out from under a look that’s gazing decidedly askance at the world. Folk-fuelled arrangements, including banjo and bouzouki... but the wistful guitar lines whisper of a kinship with the more left-field musings of Joanna Newsom”
