Acclaim for Pearly Gate Music, the musical alias of Zach Tillman

“With touches of Big Star and Will Oldham, hymnal opener ‘Golden Funeral’ couldn’t be any more spine-tingling if it tried… An inspired and intriguing debut”

Q – 4 Stars ****

“Tillman’s voice delivers a muscular melancholy matched by often startling mysterious-to-surreal lyrics… Lo-Fi,

high-octane, Tillman is a character on fire”

MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“Tillman possesses a truly pure voice… Highlights are everywhere… a significant talent”

The Fly – 4 Stars ****

“an assured and accomplished debut”

The Sun – 4 Stars ****

“When the grim reaper finally takes his swing and we scamper up that staircase to stand before St Peter, we hope that the harp-strains that catch our ears are as beautiful as this debut”

NME

“Beautiful… Zach and Josh harmonise like the Everly brothers.”

Uncut

“a proudly lo-fi collection on beat-up folk… ‘I Was A River’ is a beautiful meditation on love lost while ‘Golden Funeral’ is hymnal and atmospheric.”
