Marlo Mortensen / Press

“I don’t know how you can make ‘em better.  Edgy and different, innovative tribute to some old styles with a different Marlo twist.  Keep on keepin’ on, brother! (reaction to dirty trax on Sucio Perrito) ”

Tony Gross - Facebook Fan

“Marlo Mortensen is one of the most versatile Americana-rooted performers that the Front Range has to offer. He is quite the consummate roots music musician. His latest aggregation, Marlo and Snake Oil, implies that there's a sneaky, sinister salesman hawking worthless elixirs and potions around the corner, but in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, the Snake Oil analogy fits in nicely here given the band's potent blend of Americana, country, western swing, pop standards, folk and TexMex, not to mention its favorite concoction of Farm Jazz, the intersection of country and jazz beyond its traditional western swing paradigm. Though audiences are sure to recognize a familiar cover, at the same time, Marlo and Snake Oil are not to be pigeonholed strictly as a cover band. Marlo's other identity is in being a steady songsmith, with originals such as "Colorado Swing," "The Clock Ticks" and "Cajun Queen" finding homes in the hearts of others. ”
