"from Illiterate Magazine"

"Mike Marchant is different; more expansive. He tends to use an abundance of delays and echos on many of his recordings, however he does it with precision, matching the sounds with the songs and enhancing the tonality of his voice and instrumentation. His compositions as well as his self are at once accessible and experimental. Marchant's keen awareness of using a vintage Moog synth is brilliant, as I have found it easy to muddy something up with one of these, but he keeps it focused to single note melodies that pulsate between the lyrics. And his voice is airy and tall, like his height, but very on pitch and supported by tenderly placed backing vocals, self-made of course." - Illiterate Magazine

"from The Denver Post"

"One of Denver’s most admired songwriters and performers, Marchant’s engaging stage presence, affable demeanor and soulful performance always catch eyes and ears, whether he’s playing solo, fronting his psychedelic pop band, Widowers, or stepping out of the limelight to sing backup and play guitar with indie pop collective Houses. Last year’s “Outer Space and the Sea” saw the artist exploring his love of Brian Wilson and the psych rockers who followed his tortured, tuneful path. With just a handful of tracks, the songwriter cemented his reputation. Last weekend, he released the second song collection under his own name, the aptly titled “Indulgent Space-Folk, Volume 2.”...The self-consciously lo-fi record was recorded in Marchant’s home studio, but great pains have been taken to ensure that every fret slide, pick click and deep breath were captured." - The Denver Post

"from The Advocate, University of Colorado at Denver"

"Marchant’s music is by no means a rip off of John, Ringo, Paul, or George. Simply, it’s an updated 60s-esque style that weaves a musical web that’s hard to escape." - UCD Advocate
