Press / Reviews
- Marcus is a genuine troubadour with an open heart and a keen ear. In the tradition of musical truth-seekers, he’s carrying the torch and illuminating the path of humanness. I’m excited to see his star rise and watch where it carries him.

Never Come Down,)
- "One of the best songwriters I have ever met. Marcus channels the spirit of American Folk music in every lyric and every note that he plays. His pure authentic sound is like a time capsule taking you on a journey through America over the past 100 years."
- James Daniels Co-Founder of Chestnut Grove (chestnutgroveband.com)
"Written and performed by Marcus Angeloni, “Don’t Be Worry’n Mama is featured on his new album – perfectly titled – Hillbilly Crooner. Providing a comforting collection of harmonica and string, “Don’t Be Worry’n Mama” is a gift of country music to all mamas who have watched their sons grow up and go off into their world on their own. Mistakes are often made, but it’s all part of the journey, all part of the learning experience. And no matter what – what Mama has taught you will stay with you in your heart. Audiences will connect with Angeloni’s words, no matter what their story may have entailed"
