"As featured on Jazz FM" Ruth Fisher 'Full Circle' & 'Live Performance' Series



“Imagine a mixture of Flora Purim, Annie Lennox and the best of folk greats Pentangle. The runners pop sensibility veers from shock tactics to the rhythms of world music. A very, very enjoyable album; worth buying just to hear the joyful sounds of Steve Taylor’s drumming. Not a programmed beat or loop in the whole project. Marvellous.

" delightful vocals fit

perfectly over the impressive

global feel of Taylor & Fraters’ elaborate

instrumental production. These tracks

achieve a wholesomely uplifting vibe thanks to

the infectious Brazilian Funk rhythm

arrangements and insatiable zest for life

related in the lyrics“
