What some other people have said about Mock Deer ..
Folk Radio Uk - Song Of The Day (Pork Chop Suits)
"Everything hangs on the voice .. And what a voice it is!" - Real Gone
London Gig Guide - "Wow, what a gorgeous gorgeous track, this guy creates real atmosphere and depth within his songs, amazing! He creates drama but also a real tenderness in his live performances, his personality and vulnerability really shine through"
The Music Box - "A very imaginative songwriter, his track 'Wonder' sends shivers down my spine"
"Ricky Damiani (alias Mock Deer) is an outstanding London based Folk-musician.
With a brilliant voice - altogether delicate, powerful and endearing. His live performance is really intense and energetic.
Accompanied by melodic fingerpicked guitar lines his songs tell stories of (amongst other things) Nature, Desire and Loneliness.
Mock Deer is definitely worth experiencing live!!"
