"Kershaw said to me that he had not sung for nearly 10 years when he recorded this album (15 MINUTES). It doesn t show. He has produced his strongest material to date to confirm his position as one of Britains top songwriters.."
"Don t dismiss his new album just because you think it is trendy not like him. lt is an irresistible collection of tracks which will grab the attention of anyone who likes guitar-drenched rock and pop alongside powerful melodies". Ian Sale - "Evening Standard" 18/02/99.
"There is not a weak song in the 15 MINUTES album; I found myself humming the tunes after just one listen. This is a truly expert blend of great sounds, talented songwriting and musicianship. Inspiring". Ben Barlett "Guitarist".
