"... her voice is quite de luxe ! Never miss an opportunity of hearing her !"

"Pauline Alexander has a beautiful modern Scottish folk voice, reminiscent of Sandy Denny."

is surely one of the finest voices to have emerged in the Scottish folk scene
in recent times. Her eclectic repertoire, fine presentation, with tasty guitar
accompaniment by Edwin, earned the pair a standing ovation at the Edinburgh

young singer from Glasgow, with a very distinctive voice and songwriting
style...a very talented young woman" Colum Sands - Folk Club - BBC Radio Ulster
"Pauline Alexander, what a voice. Immaculate choice of songs, sensitive arrangments (with Edwin on guitar) and an absolute affinity with the audience. All that and an exceptional songwriter as well ... As festival organiser I am often subjected to unsolicited but welcome feedback and Pauline topped a number of People's favourite artist poll. And the opposition wasn't bad!"
Donald MacNeill - Ceol Cholasa Festival Director / Organiser
"We were most impressed with the performance of singer
Pauline Alexander and guitarist Edwin Gallacher. A very special voice with some superb guitar
accompaniment delighted our audience. It
is refreshing to listen to a singer whose passion is to perform a good song, no
matter what the genre. She sensibly
mixed her set with some lovely self-penned material and well known songs. This duo deserve to go far in the music
Dave and Lorna Dewar - Music at Craigie Folk Club
"Pauline has a wonderful voice and sings beautiful
songs and Ed, the guitarist is amazing, they compliment each other so well"
"Pauline and Ed are
fantastic, where did you find them, a great addition to the festival, well done
for booking them"
Festival Attendees - Alcester Folk Festival
"At last we have in PAULINE ALEXANDER a
singer who has the courage, humility and spiritual intelligence to set her
voice free, so that we too can fly with it as it soars into realms of infinite
beauty and transcendental power. Prepare to be truly amazed when you hear this
unforgettable and incomparable voice. It was an honour and sheer joy to share
the stage with her."
and Edwin came to us at very short notice as we had a cancellation. Never have
we been so glad of the panic trying to find another act at the last minute. Pauline was an absolute delight to listen to, such a lovely voice, wide
repertoire and good craic whilst Edwin's guitar playing was fantastic and they
went so well together. We look forward to a return visit in the next year when we can give them more
publicity and so the audience they truly deserve."
Marianne - Leith Folk Club
"Pauline Alexander was outstanding at the globe, best act at the globe 2013. and that
takes some doing."
Jamie Knowles - Glossop Violins Concerts Folk Club
"Having heard a short demo, I delayed printing the brochure for this year's Arran Folk Festival in order to secure the late addition of Pauline Alexander on to the programme. Her live performance was simply stunning and was without doubt THE voice of this year's Festival"
Jon Hollingworth - Arran Folk Festival - Arran Events
"Pauline Alexander performed, along with her guitarist Edwin Gallacher, on a
warm sunny morning at the 2013 Ayr Flower Show. Her voice floated through the
beautiful parkland and soothed like honey. Pauline is a wonderful talent
hailing from Glasgow with one of the most beautiful voices in Scotland. Having
performed at Celtic Connections, recently at Third Degree Burns at the Robert
Burns Birthplace Museum, Pauline gains fans and admirers wherever she goes."
Lizzie Linton - Ayr Flower Show Entertainments
"Pauline has a beautiful voice that truly comes from
her soul. Her melodic harmonies are complemented perfectly by the subtly
played guitar from Edwin. A pleasure to listen to."
Rachel Mays - Innerleithen Music Festival
“I heard Pauline sing on a show on a Celtic Music Radio
broadcast from Scotland .. I did not know her name at the time .. but I did
know instantly that I had to find out who she was and where I could get her
music… I was astounded by the purity of her voice on a ‘ live ‘ recording, She
has been compared to many great singer / songwriters .. but .. there is only one Pauline Alexander. She is now a
regular on my show and on our Station playlist on Blues and Roots Radio here in

"Pauline Alexander is a breath of fresh air, her music captivates and involves the listeners with a voice that's as clear as the mountain stream, and is delivered with sincerity and a passion that leaves you wanting more. "
Terry Ferdinand - BishopFM
"Not every singer can take classics like 'Imagine' and 'Fields of Gold' and still lend something of their own identity to them, but Pauline does this with ease. She has that rare ability to really 'live' the lyrics she is singing and bring songs alive with her pure, emotionally-charged voice that evokes the ghosts of Eva Cassidy and Karen Carpenter to name but a few...On the strength of this debut offering, it must be concluded that Pauline Alexander is indeed a voice, and a force to be reckoned with."
Ciaran Dorris - The Sunday Session - Celtic Music Radio
"Pauline's interpretation of the song and her version of Lennon's "Imagine", are far more than straight covers. As with the rest of the material on the album, Pauline's voice captivates the listener. Using simple arrangements with mainly guitar and keyboard, the music is almost understated, allowing the voice to take prominence."
Pete Townsend - Reviewer - Cross Rhythms
"Gentle, comforting, and soothing, like listening to the voice of an Angel guiding you home, that's the impression I get when listening to gifted singer Pauline Alexander."
Stewart Brennan – World United Music
"Pauline Alexander's voice is a pure joy, complimenting her songs perfectly..."
Rick Stuart - Roots and Fusion - Pure Radio 107.8FM
"One album that I would thoroughly recommend is 'Thoughts for the Masses' from Glaswegian singer/songwriter Pauline Alexander. This album is her debut and it can only be described as an absolute gem. There are some hauntingly beautiful tracks on the album but for me her cover of 'Fields of Gold' and her own compositions' Where Lucifer Lingers' and Seven Notes' all stand out In a day when every artiste is labelled in a box called 'sounds like' inevitable comparisons will be made with the likes of Eva Cassidy and Katie Melua however alongside these artistes there is no doubt that Pauline has a voice to rival even theirs. The album is an independent release just now but it only a matter of time before Pauline is picked up by a major label and becomes a household name in her own right."
Ian Arbuckle - Revival Releases - Revival FM
Pauline Alexander is a wonderful singer, songwriter and musician from Glasgow whom I was just blown away by the very first time I heard her perform. She possess a truly beautiful voice and her songs are beautiful, sometimes a haunting lament, sometimes uplifting songs of joy but always inspiring and moving. Pauline has been rated by and her debut album "Thoughts for the masses" has been critically well received by BBC Scotland, Celtic Connections and myself!
