Toby Hay :
“Something of a young troubadour, Hay makes compositions that feel both incredibly detailed and beautifully light. A rising star and so much more.” — Green Man Festival
“Hay’s album is a stunning turning point in what we have come to call folk music. A beautiful, frank and mysterious statement..” — Folk Radio UK
“Time-worn and wistful for days long past, Hay’s music overflows with heart and soul, and though wholly born from personal experience, exudes a humanity that makes it universally relatable. How heartening it is to be reminded that there’s still room in this world for music of such genuine character.” — Textura
“The Gathering is a brilliantly conceived and realised debut record and its locational compositions contain some of the most emotive and expressive new music you’ll hear this year.” — fRoots
“In an age of often soulless banality and corporate uniformity the fact that one man and an acoustic guitar can create music as authentic and uplifting as this is testimony to Toby Hay’s talent and promise for the future.” — New Sound Wales
