"The rich production enhances this collection, with hints of soul, Americana and the faint husk of Vance’s vocals combining for an album of real depth and beauty. With guests Ed Sheeran and Bonnie Raitt, this could – and should – be the album to finally launch Vance internationally"

Foy Vance, "The Joy of Nothing" - Lauren Muphy, The Irish Times

"The purity of voice, the measured intensity of instrumentation and the depth of lyrical portrait......I can’t recommend The Darkling Air's “Untamed & Beloved” highly enough"

- Stephen McCauley , BBC Radio Ulster
