" ... comparisons diminish the sense of originality that
clearly exists here. Realm of Possibility is brilliant."

"This must be one of the most truly 'different' CDs I
have heard in quite some time. The sounds are like nothing I have heard before, at a guess the use of pre-sets is avoided at all costs. Every track is in a constant state of shift detail being added here and removed there whilst fascinating lead lines just make their presence felt without intruding. Rhythmically its also inventive but really its often very difficult to separate each individual element in the mesmerising heady brew." Synth Music Direct
"Whether exploring an 'Ancient Island' or 'A Language
for Shadows', Kerby's compositional skills flourish,
elevating the tuneage out of atonal drifts and plunging
the tracks into melodic streams that slice through stone
as deftly as they course through the air."
