Here’s some nice stuff people have been saying about Dear Departure:

★★★★½ “This record mesmerises like a live set that improves as the musicians and room warms” The Sydney Morning Herald

 “There are few duets these days that can compare to the beautiful, sincere and evocative sound of Sweet Jean”  The Music

“…a magnificent debut” Paisajes Eléctricos Magazine

“Sweet Jean’s record Dear Departure has been on high rotation at my place. Two distinct voices and strong songwriters make a combination greater than the sum of the parts. Dreamy, epic, wry, tender, straight-shooting. This record deserves to be heard far and wide.” Paul Kelly
