Quotes / Reviews One of the hardest working and certainly most talented bands swimming in the crowded and competitive Asheville music Pool, Marsupial is a nimble crew achieving (and deserving) to explode onto the southern jam seas. A highly effective prog 'n' rock dual-guitar attack, Marsupial has tightened and Seasoned it's epic rock the old fashioned way: Via metric tons of live gigs and touring over the last three years-plus. Indeed, the practice has paid off, as these guys exhibit a penchant for tight, directed epic jamming with a purpose. Stuart Gaines ~ Honest Tune Magazine Marsupial creates a combination of hook-laden rock and roll to tightly composed yet loosely flowing jams. The songs that expand your mind on disc possess your synaptic functions entirely when being interpreted live. From the opening jam of the lush Why Are These Pillows Following Ye, off of their debut dancing about architecture, through to the hour-long, 5 song second set Marsupial sets the music blazing. Time signatures change and combine with a stunning rapidity, solos flare and die and songs become moving targets. Dave Terpeny ~ Kyndmusic.com The band operates as a tight-knit family and has a common philosophy of crossing all available musical boundaries. In the past five years this quartet has created a buzz around the southeast U.S. with an eclectic musical vision that melds an improv-heavy mix of jazz-rock and progressive rock with a superior melodic content. This is an outfit with much promise. Mick Skidmore ~ Relix Magazine.
