“…Storm Petrel shows David Lawrie as an artist and songwriter who's emerged from a phase of relentless experimentation as one who's found his voice… well-crafted soundscapes, outstanding production values and a generous dose of good old-fashioned melodrama.”

- Phil Vanderyken, Drunken Werewolf

It goes without saying that in 2015 he has gone from strength to strength.
