Folk North West Magazine, The Lark and The Blackbird Album Review
1st March 2019
“This is the 3rd solo outing from Simon Cousins who was born in the West Country and moved to Liverpool in 1987. I reviewed his first album Given Songs in 2015 for FNW Magazine and commented then the songs would appeal to the discerning listener who appreciates well written lyrics and quality delivery. The Lark and the Blackbird delivers much of the same on both counts... Simon continues to produce quality music, this is a collection of folk songs and ballads exploring the poetic themes of love, laughter, lullaby and lament. John MacKenzie"
