Press reviews

Hoyland’s music seems to gain in stature with every new piece. The culminate effect of Fox is impressive: abrasive textures, chordal riffs, timeless, serenely, sustained interludes of quietude. (Andrew Clements)

Engrossingly self sufficient, sharp, spare images, tautly pungent rhythms, sometimes quite stark, sometimes disruptive, with contrasts of pattern and emphasis. (Robert Henderson)
