“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 sophisticated.” - 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.” - Alternative Press Magazine

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