Here’s what the press said about Making Waves …

 

 

As folk music splinters into countless variations of Nu-Folk it’s refreshing to hear someone doing it in the traditional way.
**** Q

Making Waves is a generational call to abandon apathy.
Q – Top 50 downloadsMegan Henwood

A bewitching set of songs (which) display an articulate worldview that Ray Davies or Chris Difford would be proud of.
*** UNCUT

Making Waves would be a remarkably polished album from any artist. From a 22 year-old debutante it’s simply remarkable.
**** R2 (Rock ‘n’ Reel) MAGAZINE

A stunningly assured debut from a young talent set to achieve great things.
ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE

Comparisons to Laura Marling are too hard to resist but she does have a fabulous voice and some fire in her belly which should propel her near the top!
MOJO

One of the UK’s finest emerging singer/songwriters. Making Waves is full of great songs…. it’s brilliant.
THE PEOPLE

Outstanding and boundary-breaking debut album from 22 year old BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner.
Without a doubt, Megan is one of the best British female singers that have emerged in the last five years.
A stunning debut!
PENNY BLACK MUSIC

Bloody good. GUARDIAN

One to watch. THE INDEPENDENT

Making Waves is a clear winner in every way an album should be. Megan Henwood’s songwriting skills are demonstrated to the full on every track, a stunning debut from a bright new talent!
A spectacular debut!
FOLK RADIO UK

She has the voice and the songwriting craft to take her into the mainstream.
CLASSIC ROCK

Brings to mind both Laura Marling and Joni Mitchell, gently impassioned folk enveloped in a swirl of acoustic strumming and elegant orchestration – irresistible.
DIRECT CURRENT MAGAZINE, CHICAGO

Bright, melodic and original with great songs and fine musicianship.
**** MAVERICK
