The critics have been unanimous in their praise for Cara’s first album in five years ‘A Thousand Hearts’. The Sunday Express called it “a collection of erudite and beautiful songs, sung with stunning delicacy”, The Mirror said that “Cara is one of the most gifted and elegant vocal stylists in these islands” and The Telegraph, said that “Dillon is on superb form.”
Dillon, first made waves in 2001, with her eponymous solo album released on Rough Trade which went on to win two BBC Folk Awards. Two further successful albums, also on Rough Trade showered her with countless more accolades and acclaim, but it was her fourth album ‘Hill Of Thieves’ released on her own label, Charcoal Records, that eclipsed them all by winning BBC Folk Album Of The Year in 2010.
It is only right to leave the last word to the current UK Number 1 artist Ed Sheeran who tweeted: ‘listening to Cara Dillon new album and its sublime, heavily recommend to anyone’.
