"Bailey has an absolutely superb recording voice and it shows on this album … a cohesive album with a really good choice of music … deserves to be heard."

Musical Theatre Review

"Looking Up showcases Bailey's vocal prowess and evident songwriting talent in the best possible light … there is a real poignancy and quietly epic nature to his original writing … great musical production … a recording from the heart."


"The use of guitars on many of the tracks, and a very frank production style gives the album enormous realism - and certainly gives the listener a very intimate listening experience … 'Sing For The Angels' is the ideal opener, and shows Bailey's talent as a songwriter as well as performer … A good release, and in some ways a brave departure for SimG."

Review Graveyard

"Simon is an extremely gifted songwriter and recording artist … the arrangements and orchestrations are stunning. It is wonderful to see SimG Records encouraging exciting new talent … an exceptional album. Each song has been chosen for a reason and the album takes you on quite a journey."
