LISTEN NOW... to a selection of tracks from the album

"Sterling's gorgeous songs tell heartfelt and witty stories in the vernacular of contemporary pop. His ear for both bubbly and emotionally charged pop music tunes and his deft ability for storytelling are wonderfully showcased on this disc. Among the album's highlights are the effervescent ‘Make My Heart Go Beat’, delivered with exuberant sweetness by Jos Slovick, the bittersweet folk ballad ‘The Sky Looks Gray to Me’, which Rhiannon Sarah Porter fills with heartfelt plaintiveness, and ‘Here We Are’, a bouncy, Celtic-inspired duet that Jack Shalloo and Jonathan Eio render with joyous warmth and merry bonhomie."

Andy Propst, TheaterMania

"The freshest and possibly hottest new talent in musical theatre ... a strong collection of some of the best new writing, complimented by beautiful performances. Highly recommended."

John Roberts, Public Reviews

"The mix of lyrics between Gould and Sterling himself is pretty even, and shows that the composer is also a fine wordsmith. ‘Here We Are’ is not only clever musically, but is also a fine example in lyric writing. Gould also supplies some tasty treats … but by far the stars of the show are the music and performances. While we have writing of this quality, and record labels like SimG there to enable it, then the British Music (and Musicals) industry is in very safe, and talented hands. 9/10."
