"Who wouldn't love to make records and play for a living?" asks Cariad Harmon, when discussing her hopes for the future. A classically pretty singer-songwriter from across the pond, with a disarming smile and contagious laugh, Cariad has been building momentum in her adopted hometown of New York City since she moved there in 2004. There is no grandiose plan here, no pretension in her approach. She is simply a girl from London who has come a long way and made a beautiful record. Four Letters, Cariad's debut album on Mowo!, Inc. is an effortlessly well rounded outing full of gentle lilting-melodies, simple, relatable stories, beautifully hypnotizing string arrangements and warm airy production.
"...Although you can pinpoint the strumming of James Taylor, lyrics of Van Morrison and voice of Jack Johnson, Jon Paul is somehow very original. When asked to describe his style, Jon Paul says, “I'm lyric-driven folk-music. When I got to Berklee, I started getting into blues guitar. But then I've got this whole other side which is more of a Paul Simon-y type of thing that's more geared toward my songwriting,” crediting Paul Simon's storytelling style as a major inspiration. “I try to blend the two together.” He does it all quite seamlessly." - Colin Cosell - The Examiner.com
