“...From the introduction to the finale of Storyteller, Mike’s method of ‘storytelling’ faithfully carries on an oral tradition that has taken place in numerous ancient and modern cultures and civilizations for millennia. Through a series of vivid narratives woven throughout the entire album/CD, Mike’s lyrics allude to a life ‘blown around’ by circumstances that can only be experienced firsthand....”

Mario of Mario and Friends from Oakland, CA

"Mike McDevitt's Storyteller album is a rare glimpse into the soul of a true artist. McDevitt uses minimal production and only needed instrumentation to create a sonic wonderland of sights and sounds. Here, my friends, is what music is supposed to be. Perfect musical timing and spot-on vocals delivering clear and emotional stories about life and love, loneliness and hope, loss and renewal - all wrapped in a melodic masterwork. This is rock (country, R&B, country-rock) at its best; there's not a weak song here. Truly remarkable effort!"
