'It made me instantly happy when I heard it'
'He's a work of art'
'Whimsical rhyming stories'
‘Gecko’s songwriting sparkles in cosmic starbursts…his vocal radiates with sharp, vibrant colours…leaving you both gleeful and melancholic’
'Guaranteed to put a smile on even the grumpiest of faces...an absolute favourite'
'Just completely charmed me...I think he's quite brilliant'
'By a country mile, though, my album of 2017 is Volcano by Gecko...It’s a sumptuous feast of lovely melodies and cascades of sweet and clever words, superficially often seemingly inconsequential but with serious undertones.'
'Raising a laugh and a lump in the throat all at once is a good trick – possibly the best. Gecko makes it look easy. A gifted young comic songwriter with charm and style to spare'
