Reviews

Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1

'It made me instantly happy when I heard it'

Gary Crowley, BBC Introducing

'Guaranteed to put a smile on even the grumpiest of faces...an absolute favourite'

John Kennedy, Radio X

'Absolutely brilliant'

Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

'Just completely charmed me...I think he's quite brilliant'

The Morning Star

'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.'


★★★★ Broadway Baby

'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'
