Along The Way.
“The combination of the layered vocals and instrumental textures, along with
a tune that feels immediately familiar, is that ‘UNarmed American’ becomes
anthemic.” - Americana U.K.
“Mickelson unveils his most politically charged work to date with Drowning In
An Inflatable Pool. It’s an album rooted in a collective frustration about the
mismanagement of our country by this current White House administration.”
- American Songwriter

“this music is the balance between strong, subtle, unexpected, and sophisti-
cated.” - Paste Magazine

“Drowning in an Inflatable Pool combines an anxious energy with alluring
melodies to create a remarkable musical experience”. - Twangville

“I call it anthemic when a band or chorus hits all the notes just right and the
sound becomes bigger than it should be and Mickelson hits it often enough
on this album to make it worthy of the highest of recommendations.” - No
Depression

“It’s American folk-Rock with a post punk edge, rustic but scarred.” - Alter-
native Press Magazine

“Flickering, a buoyant composition showcasing that Mickelson offers undeni-
able musical charm and instrumental dexterity.” - Glide Magazine
