“As a lyricist,

Spry is clearly talented;
drawing on personal stories and influences and delivering the musical narrative
through a fresh and modern approach of musical delivery and arrangement,
he's got that chilled yet obviously passionate
sense of lyricism and
musicianship on lock.”


-Sosefina Fuamoli
