    Initially cutting his performing chops in a series of punk bands, James Yorkston was propelled into the U.K. folk limelight after securing an opening slot supporting John Martyn.His third album, YEAR OF THE LEOPARD, finds Yorkston in full creative bloom--from traditional acoustic folk to more experimental spoken word pieces, its spare beauty is lent a cohesiveness from Paul Webb's delicate production and sparse arrangements. Yorkston's wispy intonation brims with an understated yet affecting charm. Happily flouting easy tags like "new folk" or "singer-songwriter," THE YEAR OF THE LEOPARD is a highly original work by an artist at the height of his powers.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.89) - "James Yorkston floats through that sad-eyed realm with hope in his heart, gently tugging at modest acoustic melodies..."
    Magnet (p.112) - "LEOPARD is so quiet and somber it barely exists, but it's the perfect soundtrack for late-night reveries."
    CMJ (p.42) - "[A] collection of sparsely arranged acoustic-guitar-meets-electric-piano tracks....It's refreshing to note that Yorkston's songs are pretty without being frilly."
