    FATEA MAGAZINE REVIEW by Tony Collins

    "Walking Up The Royal Mile" has a Country feel to it and visits many parts of Paul Brand’s home city, Edinburgh.
    I found it pleasurable to mentally visit those places again and If you have never been there,
    all the names are familiar. It follows a rambler back in town whose friends have all got homes and are settled.
    He should be moving on yet he doesn't know why, maybe it's the thought of loving someone.
    He remembers his dreams but he sees HER in all of them.
    He recollects the attractiveness of cities around the world, but he still ends up walking up the Royal Mile.
    This attractive song has all the attributes of a modern country song and is performed well.
    It is a song that grows on you the more you listen to it.
    The song is a good advertisement for the album which based on this, should be a good buy."

    THE ROCKER REVIEW by stuartahamilton

    Paul Brand 12 Songs is a solo record which is rooted in singer/songwriter meets country meets folk.
    And very enjoyable it is too. The songs are very strong and it must be bad luck that stopped him
    making more of a name for himself over the years. His voice has a lived in quality that suits his music.
    The likes of ‘Walking Up The Royal Mile’, ‘All I Ever Wanted’ and ‘Take My Body Home’
    have tales to tell and they’re tales well worth hearing. A delightful surprise.

    The album is available to buy both in digital format and on CD from the links above.
    The CD is also available to buy at every Paul Brand and Cherry Pickers performance.
