"Micah Olsan incorporates so many styles into his folkiness it's enough to make one's head spin.Into his intricate acoustic guitar work he integrates classical, jazz and Latin flair to augment what might otherwise be standard coffeehouse picking and strumming. Bass, keyboards and even smidgens of random noise give Olsan a heft and depth that suggest an especially thoughtful if sometimes typically rambling jam band. His gentle tenor aptly recalls Donovan, Chris Rice and the mellower moods of Dave Matthews."
- Jamie Lee Rake, Shepherd Express (Jul 26, 2010) - The Shepherd Express


"Giant Sized Life" by Micah Olsan is an impressive modern folk CD. The CD features Micah's excellent songwriting, which includes memorable choruses and thought-provoking lyrics. Throughout the CD, Micah demonstrates his smooth acoustic guitar work and pitch-perfect vocals, which are delivered with a very interesting vocal tone. The production and musicianship on the CD are top notch. Tracks such as "Come Again" and "Jerry Danks" feature a very tight groove that is a signature of this fine CD. Another signature of this CD are tight breaks, which, on "Giant Sized Life," are filled with catchy percussion and guitar licks. If you enjoy big-name artists such as Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson, you will enjoy this CD.

Micah has been an active performer in the Midwest music scene for the last five years. His diverse songwriting takes folky storytelling, interlocking guitar parts, and passionate, soaring vocals and places them smoothly on top of a funky, jazz and world-infused rhythm section. Micah's writing draws on influences from Paul Simon to Radiohead and the Talking Heads.

His eclectic guitar work was recognized in the 2010 Shepherd Express reader poll when he was nominated for favorite local guitarist, and his album Off Beat Clappers and Hip Toe Tappers was nominated as best album you missed in the 2011 Milwaukee Music Awards.
