Americana UK. "For those who know Eddy Morton only as the front man in the various incarnations of the Bushbury Mountain Daredevils, "The Singing Tree" may come as something of a shock. Morton has journeyed from good-time folk/country to reflective singer-songwriter, but on the evidence of this album, it’s where he should have been all along".
World Unlimited "Excellent songwriter and singer..... good songs, good CD".
Net Rhythms "As fine a piece of work as anything he's recorded in the decade or so since the demise of the undervalued Adventure Babies. Evocative of a Celtic hued Martyn Joseph, Ralph McTell and Mike Peters with clear touches of Dylan influence".
Dave Lee Travis "I must confess, I love this song". Ordinary Man, Ordinary Woman.
Bristol Evening Post "Eddy writes intelligent lyrics and has a deep, gravelly voice with a nasal quality that is extremely listenable".
Maverick Magazine " From professional footballer to one of the finest songwriters in the UK. The album is a testament to his writing and singing skills".
Folk Diary "All his songs are extremely well constructed with highly memorable melodies".
Classic Rock Society "Eddy is a singer/songwriter of some quality. The album consists of thoughtfully constructed, semi-acoustic, melodic rock and is very pleasing to the ear & a highly listenable album".
Country Music Round Up "Eddy is a highly talented Dylanish songwriter, a thinking-storyteller and a searcher. Husky-voiced, EM incorporates his natural poetic and musical gifts into his engaging quest. His wistful songs are his gentle sermons and his pulpit is his guitar. Living is not for him something to take lightly".
Folk North West "With "The Singing Tree" Eddy shows off his gentle acoustic style on 10 self-penned songs. If you’re a fan of gentler folk/rock it could be just what you want".
Music Mart July 2006 "Singing Tree" is an admirable effort that possesses many charms. As a showcase for a talented songwriter it certainly scores a big victory".
Birmingham Mail "It’s a terrific album & he’s also worth seeing live".
