    "The female element in the Bancroft clan, (brothers Tom and Phil are, respectively, drummer and saxophonist) turns her family jazz influence down low on her latest album, allowing folk, blues and contemporary singer-songwriter styles to weave inside her compositions. As the title suggests, this is a more personalised affair than any number of polished Norah Jones or Beth Rowley productions; recorded in Bancroft's sitting room in Pathhead, just outside Edinburgh, the album recruits the talents of Bancroft's husband, bassist Tom Lyne and neighbours Martin Green (accordion) and Amy Geddes (fiddle). The occasional foreign flavour of a Parisian cafe or Gypsy wedding adds colour to the songs, but it's the velvet-draped voice of Bancroft herself that wafts through the set like a warm breeze. Lyrically too she is on good form, taking on the body fascists with I Would Rather Be Me and adding to a noble heritage of naughty blues lines with Won't Be You: "Who's gonna check my oil/Now that you've gone and done the dirty on me?"
