'......Strung Deep is a deeply moving and evocative album. The merging of his folk and blues style on the acoustic guitar with Indian instruments, like tabla and Bansuri flute is spot on. ... the combination is certainly one-of-a-kind and almost transports you to a time and place that never existed, but should have.'
'..A three dimensional acoustic tapestry of layered texture and lyrical wonder....Strung Deep leaves you longing for more.'
'...perfect Sunday morning music... I really enjoyed listening through it - it is a very well paced and interesting listen'. Rough Trade (Nigel House)
' Corbett’s style is an infusion of UK spirit with an dash of culture from India.
The album is dark with specks of light shining through here and there. A truly amazing musical adventure with a wild symphony of guitar and tabla and Corbett’s voice finding harmony with the tones in the music. Well worth checking out if you have the tenacity to really find the abstract in music and work your way to understanding something you may not at first.
' ..with his deep affinity with Indian classical music and his expertise in soulfully conveying its essence on the humble acoustic guitar. … where other guitar maestros have dipped their toes…. he's taken the integration a stage further and his collaboration with tabla virtuosos Nitin Gaikwad and Sharanappa Guttaragi on this disc is both fiery and rewarding.'
FATEA (David Kidman)
'…a powerful atmosphere to be generated by a guitar, and ….vocal phrasing was fascinating' Dan Fisher
