 Crow would be thrilled, I think. Bird Radio has got the swagger, and the terrible romanticism, and the sweetness in the bleakness. It’s deeply felt and riveting. Lots of work about or inspired by Crow is scared to be beautiful. He has to be beautiful or the ugliness fails.’ Max Porter, author of Grief is the thing with Feathers 

‘folk-horror of the darkest hue, his voice soaring like Scott Walker. Bird Radio fulfils his early promise as a musical storyteller of rare power.’ Steve Hunt, fRoots

Mesmerising and mystical. Enchanting and awe inspiring. Those are but a few words that do little really to divulge the sheer wonder of this performer and the pleasure it was to be in his presence. The Student, Edinburgh Fringe 

‘Bird Radio shines out as a unique and eccentric creative force
reimagining sound and text in such playful and inventive ways.’ Sam Lee

‘Bird Radio (aka Mikey Kirkpatrick) has the energy of Bob Log III and Son of Dave, along with the sheer inventiveness of Thomas Truax.’  Bearded Magazine 

‘A mix of old testament preacher and Captain Beefheart.’  jazzman.com 

‘a flute-toting, bass drum-beating sensation’.  Rick Pearson, Evening Standard
