'Join The Dots was no doubt a solid debut, but Cummings has definitely found his home on this album. Crafting a sense of yearning that stings like lemon juice to an open wound, A Trophy is a tour-de-force that shakes with unexpected conviction. A magnificent storyteller. One of the best releases this year, surely. - whothehell.
'...A Trophy is an album that betrays Cummings’ humbleness, and formidable skill as a vocalist...With a voice that can only be described as blessed...it’s an evocative album that grows in quality with repeated listens.' - Mess & Noise.
'...it’s the overriding sense of restraint and subtlety that impresses most here, as well as the excellent production by Scott Horscroft and Tim Whitten, making A Trophy a very strong second album from Cummings that’s well worth exploration.' - Cyclic Defrost.
'Cummings possesses a voice indie singer-songwriters the world over would smash their acoustic guitar for. Equally comfortable in soft-focus baritone or soaring above the chords' - The Age.
'A Trophy is the sort of well-executed, beautifully crafted record that sounds like it should have long been circling on radios nationwide.' - The Weekly Review.
'Cummings remains a unique songwriter, following his own mysterious whims at every turn, and yet his new record is more accessible than it first seems. In the end, it could appeal to fans of everyone from Coldplay to Grizzly Bear to Bill Callahan.' - Citysearch.
'A Trophy is a record that glides meticulously from that of the suffocatingly intense to the tranquil, the gloriously epic to the grippingly sparse...and establishe(s) further his deserved position as one of the country's finest singer/songwriters.' - Beat Magazine.
