Press previews

"It's shear madness as singing sheep go jazzSomerset has some new pop stars, although they haven't let the rock 'n' roll lifestyle change them - they're still standing around in a field eating grass."  Western Daily Press

"Sheep from the Blackdown Hills are set to become 'flock stars' ...Their melodic bleats feature on Hearnshaw & Green's Blackdown Voices which has captured other sounds from the area of outstanding natural beauty."  Culm Valley Gazette
