about

"How To Become A Recluse is the sort of record that says more in a whisper than a thousand screaming voices could ever accomplish - it is, in the truest sense, a human soul laid bare; there's nowhere to hide when the majority of a record is one voice and one guitar working in synchronicity. The best records are born from honesty and when coupled with the talent of a gifted songwriter and stroyteller, as in the case of Chalk, the result can't help but be a triumph. This is a gift for a rainy day, a reflective collection of thoughts that is so universally identifiable that it's as if Chalk has ripped a hole into your deepest hopes and fears, stuck his hand in, and had a good old pull on the strings." - Glasswerk Magazine

"Praise thus far has thrown in comparisons to the likes of Elliott Smith and Modest Mouse, and while there is a sense of that lofi, mid-Nineties sense of gloominess to his recordings, there’s no doubt the songs that make-up his new, and second, full-length are inescapably British. These songs carry a sense of resignation as forlorn as a seaside town left to rot through a morose Winter, where the gritty grey streets exist only as a map of what might have been, what’s already been and gone. Through every fuzzed-out slab of guitar and strained, downcast vocal, bleeds a kind of heart-fulled passion that swings almost-manically between stern defiance and unalloyed indignation." - GoldFlakePaint
