‘Johnny is a brilliant writer, a gifted musician and an inspiring film-maker with an Orson Welles-like, mono-creator attitude’.
David Quantick – WORD Magazine
‘Johnny made a brilliant and heartwarming video for Broken Greek. An amazing job…I don’t quite know how he did it’.
Katy Follain, Publishing Director – Quercus Books
‘Ingeniously scripted, darkly comic, cleverly plotted and completely original. Daukes’ Acts of Godfrey is one of the most inspired ideas I’ve ever come across’.
Decca Aitkenhead – The Guardian
‘It takes an exceptional storyteller to make your sides ache and your heart break from one moment to the next, but Johnny Daukes has both the flair and – just as crucially – the story to do just that. An extraordinary debut’.
‘Johnny’s trailer put Mat Osman’s The Ruins in front of a whole new audience. He’s professional and friendly and we can’t wait to work on another project with him’.
Michael Watson, Senior Publicist – Repeater Books
‘Johnny Daukes, wearing another of his (seemingly inexhaustible) hats and it’s pretty damn good. Like Radiohead might sound if they still wanted to top every song with a huge chorus. A little hidden gem’.
‘Fin songs scoop you up and let you flow ’til you glimpse that little bit of heaven. Let them into your life now and watch the greyness vanish’.
‘Weird, wacky, wicked and potentially wonderful. In the great English tradition of nonsensical humour, Radio9 may be very successful indeed’.
‘This is a gem of a debut wonderfully evoking the spirit of Sparklehorse’s kinder, gentler side. It’s great. Trust me’.
‘It just goes to show what can come from small budgets and big imaginations. Roll on the series’.
