All of Shaun England's press mention Leonard Cohen. It's odd there is no mention of Lou Reed who Shaun shares distinct vocal similarities. These tracks highlight an introspective songwriting style.

I enjoy Shaun England for his haunting arrangements, with his straightforward vocals in the grand tradition of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, his blue collar roots resonate in his vocal tone.
I feel richer to know that a musical soul like his is willing to share his big talent with all of us. We are made stronger and life is easier with his music.
