"Lovers of Americana should certainly check out the six track CD 'Pastures New' ... A fine Acoustic based sound"
Twoj Blues Magazine (Poland)

Blind River Scare's wonderful new record Pastures New, deserves a very close listen. There are stories being told and the songs weave through a journey of everyday life in an extraordinary way.
Dave Tonberg, Americana and Roots radio presenter, Caithness FM

"Formed in 2005 in Newport, South Wales, Blind River Scare is a vehicle for the very talented singer and guitarist Tim Manning, backed by Stuart Loosemore on stand-up bass and Mike Hopkins on Harmonium, Hammond Organ and mandolin.
Together they create a very effective and big, authentic-sounding acoustic Americana and Alt-Country sound, with Tim’s resonator guitar playing adding a pedal steel like sound at times (try ‘Restless Soul’ to hear it at its best). His voice is suitably world-weary and convincing, with the six songs all original. Pastures New memorable, often bluesy – take a listen to ‘Sideways Slide’ – and always rootsy; just pick any track at random"
Norman Darwen - RnR Magazine

It's only a six track release, but Manning ensures each one counts"
Mike Davies -

"Overall Point Of No Return is an interesting and often contagious showcase of Blind River Scare, Tim’s vocals and lyrics are for the most part slow burning, rich and welcoming whilst the band create a tasteful country backing" ... "If you want to hear well played inviting roots you’ll find a great deal to admire about Blind River Scare"
Rhythmn & Booze

"What makes this CD stand out is the quality of some of the lyrics. Opening with the title track, 'The Point Of No Return', right from the start you realise that something's a bit different with the way that the band approaches its material"
Whisperin and Hollerin

"What a lovely sound, nice production. Thought of it being a cross between The Jayhawks 'Tomorrow The Green Grass' and something Gram Parsonsesque".
Alex Huskisson – The Mystery Train Radio Show, Severn FM
