Biography

Captain Wilberforce

"Mixing rock, folk, and pop conventions with an edgy ease (and doing so in the 16-minutes-a-side whirlwind pace of the ’60s vinyl era), Captain Wilberforce crafts darkly beautiful three-minute gems" - Amplifier Magazine

"Chock full of raw and infectious slices of harmonic pop, buzzes with crunching guitars and killer choruses. Bottom line, song after well-crafted song and melody after infectious melody that should be more than just casually appealing to the majority of folks out there! " www.notlame.com

"Each song is brightly polished, alluring, fuzzy pop gem waiting to be discovered." www.heathenangel.co.uk

"A stunningly accomplished collection of classic pop that wears its Beatles and Brian Wilson influences on its sleeve but cuts the cloth to their very own shape." www.roots-and-branches.com

"Captain Wilberforce's album is the perfect tonic for fans of the perfect, radio-friendly alternative pop song." www.russellsreviews.co.uk

"Mindfilming presents ten very good pop songs in that broad and classic English tradition established by mid-career Lennon and McCartney." www.whisperinandhollerin.com

"10 beautifully constructed tracks of good honest pop music that sound both excitingly fresh, yet reassuringly familiar." www.sandmanmagazine.co.uk

"Some of the breeziest, loveliest and catchiest pop songs since the summer of Britpop landed nearly ten years ago. It's full of beautifully layered harmonies, upbeat rhythms and some catchy as hell guitar riffs." www.leedsmusicscene.net

"I Haven't Got Any Famous Friends is also upbeat. The style is difficult to pinpoint, possibly the Boo Radleys? An ELO for the noughties? This song is a less orchestral Mr. Blue Sky… Mini-LP? There's nothing mini about it."
www.highvoltage.org.uk

"At just over half an hour, laden with juicy fun hooks and jolly craftsmanship, it's a record worthy of a listen…" www.roomthirteen.com

"It’s commercially appealing, being tip-top songwriting given a subtle quirk, such as the bounce of ‘I Haven’t Got Any Famous Friends’ and the Ben Folds chirp of ‘A Very British Earthquake’." www.geocities.com/vanityprojectfanzine

"Captain Wilberforce is great songwriting pared with an awesome voice and original ideas." www.daredevil.de

"'Mindfilming' is the kind of album that's deftly executed…complex pop dressed up in traditional folk influences. You could strip these songs down purely to singer with acoustic guitar status and it wouldn't take anything away from the music…" www.entertainment.inuk.com
