The site 'Devil Has The Best Tuna' wrote this lovely article about us and specifically our song 'Rebuild it Piece by Piece'...
"It's a track that transcends musical genres and comes bloody close to transcending music. It's an impressive, unique and incredibly powerful track that sounds like Sufjan Stevens and Nick Cave joining forces with a host of angels to perform the soundtrack to the life of Edgar Allen Poe. Simply amazing."

The Independent
"Johnny Parry vaults his way from being just another singer-songwriter to something
more akin to the UK's equivalent of Sufjan Stevens, an artist with a distinctive musical vision"

Preview review in Monocle
"
It's a place you imagine to be strewn with broken pianos and un-posted love letters written in blood. But wait! It's a beautiful place with a full chamber orchestra"

Planet notion -
"Johnny Parry and that thirty-piece orchestra of his graced the stage, and oh my, what a treat they were. Beginning with ‘Kicking and Screaming Alternate Version,’ an uplifting build of strings, brass and drums, with Parry’s ever present, wonderfully gruff vocals joined by his small but perfectly formed chorus. And everything which followed was just as enjoyable. A live setting is hands down the best way to experience the Johnny Parry Chamber Orchestra. There is a wonderful juxtaposition of darkness and melancholy with lighter tones, irony with honesty, humour with sobriety. Each element of the orchestra complements the others perfectly, and each track is accompanied by a short film or animation, courtesy of Andy Holden. They are certainly a talented bunch who know how to put on a good show. And Parry’s inter-song chit-chat was equally engaging, witty and relaxed, he even brought forth a couple of bellowing belly-laughs. It was an hour of visual and aural delight which seemed to pass all too quickly."

The 405
(follow link to see the photos)
"Johnny Parry, far from a household name, surely deserves more recognition and praise than he's getting right now. Consistently tackling unusual projects and concepts with the help of videographer Andy Holden, and a plethora of musicians including regulars David Lynch and Ben Milway (who make up the rest of the Johnny Parry Trio), his performances are simply beautiful. How talent this big has gone under the radar for so long escapes me, but I suspect this is all about to change if Saturday's jaw-dropping performance was anything to go by!"
