Morning's Coming Album REVIEWS:

"Worthy of album of the week slot any day" - Liz Franklin EDEN FM


"Articulate, thoughtful, beautiful, literate, reflective – you get the idea: I enthuse, and then some." - Steve Clarke's Strange Brew


"Truthfully the title track is incredible" - Ian Cripps Music Journalist


 



LIVE REVIEWS

WINNER FOLKING.COM ARTIST OF THE YEAR : NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR 2019.

"Vision Thing are a four-piece hailing from the North West who produce the most incredibly harmonious and beautiful music, simultaneously lowering the heartbeat yet stimulating lyrically." - LIVE review by Ian Cripps @ FATEA Magazine on 28/01/2017

"Vision Thing are a brilliant band! They opened up our last Wigan Diggers Festival - created a beautiful, relaxed, atmosphere that got the day off to a great start."
-Bob Kettle : Merry Hell & Diggers Music Festival Organiser

"These experienced musicians have produced a very respectable repertoire of songs that shout (sorry whisper) mellow, stylish (I love the use of guitar and violin) and exhilarating from start to finish - ideal listening after a stressful day."

- Martin Hovden Mighty FM
 

"The album (Lights) as a whole is a wonderful offering that takes the listener in a melodic haunting and at times emotional journey. So get yourself a copy put it in your CD player and take this enjoyable and thought provoking trip believe me you will not regret it."
- Andy Chamberlain - FATEA Magazine
