N.M.E. (NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS) "Spanish singer-songwriter Joana Serrat might sound like a product of L.A.'s new-school folk scene, but the dreamy sonics on "Dear Great Canyon" instead come from Barcelona via Dublin. The spectre of Joanna Newsom hangs heavy on Joana's breathy vocals, while tracks such as 'The Blizzard' evoke the sweeping alt. country of Lambchop. Gorgeous"

FLIPSIDE"...breathy vocals, pretty melodies and solid arrangements...Serrat's home-town Barcelona should be prepared to wave goodbye to its latest talent quite soon - I have a feeling the UK will be staking a claim for this lady's brand of Americana roots and wide-eyed pop. A really serious contender for an album of the year award"

AMERICANA UK"Serrat’s voice is crystal clear and whilst being unique it’s also reassuringly familiar. She has something about her that conjures up all the fantastic women singers you’ve ever heard and whilst bringing them all together (sometimes within the same song) also keeps them separate from her own style. The closest comparison I can use is Ana-Lena Winter, who is usually my reference point for classy, sophisticated, women singer songwriters. From the opener ‘Flowers On the Hillside’ to the closer eleven tracks later, ‘Came Out Of The Blue’ this album is superb and at times surprising"

FOR FOLK'S SAKE"...mixes a range of styles; alongside the Americana staple pedal steel comes a range of swirling guitars, orchestra strings and jazzy riffs, but the diversity does not come at the expense of continuity as Serrat finds her own confident voice from within the classics"

AMAZING RADIO"As we finally start to free ourselves from the clutches of winter, these sweet, gentle melodies are perfect to get lost in on a warm afternoon in the location of your choice. Hints of Americana are combined with classic singer-songwriter arrangements, and finished with a soft pop glow, like the haze of a day that’s too warm to do anything other than just hang out on a patch of grass somewhere"

AMELIA'S MAGAZINE"...Dear Great Canyon is a stunning album of carefully paced extremes: lilting lullabies interspersed with upbeat melodies. her voice breaking in emotion against the richly orchestrated backdrop... take a listen and fall in love..."

MARK LOSING TODAY"... possessed of a fading forlorn intimacy even manages to sneak in on the blindside of Karen Dalton as it skips woozily to a statuesque symphonic shimmering of Dylan-esque dialects while ’the blizzard’ just cuts so deep you want to give it a sympathetic cuddle"

DOTS AND DASHES'...her compositional dexterity shines through'

WONDERING SOUND"Soulful sun-dappled Americana played on pedal-steel guitar"

SOUNDSXP.COM"The first songs are floaty alt.folk (‘The Blizzard’, with its groaning orchestration, is a fine example of its type) and then become more alt.country. ‘Summer On The Beach’ is ethereal and tinkling country-rock while ‘So Clear’ has a rolling sea-shanty feel and the moody, maudlin ‘Stop Feelin’ Blue’ has Roy Orbison-ish tones with its weird, wailing orchestration. The songs say enough and then end (shortest 1’35, longest 3’39), meaning that the point is made and then Serrat moves on. It makes for an intense but memorable 33 minutes, from someone who’d be perfectly at home in one of the tents at the End of the Road festival"
