'The voice of Marcel Desilets is deep, soothing, pleasant, and very easy to listen to. It's warmth is the key to the magic way that he leads you through his music. The lyrics are pieces of life woven into a poetic tapestry that covers you with it's warmth and spirit. Superior guitar talent enhances the beautiful voice that tells you a story, soothes your ear and calms your soul. Infectious with it's sincerity, touches of humour and overall joy for life, I found that I wanted to listen to it over and over again and each time that I listened I was touched by Marcel's heart, vision and gift.' -Holly B, Host/Co-Producer 807 BackBeat 'A capable player with an excellent half-sung/half-spoken voice, Desilets writes disarmingly simple folk songs that should appeal to fans of Keelaghan, Cockburn and Lightfoot.' -Bartley Kives, Winnipeg Free Press 'Supported by strong musicianship, Marcel Desilets debut, Turtle Highway is a comforting reassurance about living in Manitoba. It's a very personal album, dedicated to his late father, full of subtleties that are common to his and all Manitobans' stories...A 'Manitoban Minstrel' he is, and captured something that is deeply personal to all Manitoba he has.' -Winnipeg's Stylus Magazine '...You make it seem easy. You shine the right light on the glory and grandeur of the bantamweight. Thank You.' -Jesse DeNatale ' His songwriting, his guitar playing, his singing, his appreciation for his muse, his audience, his family, his life...everything about him conveys a deep and unshakable strength. Marcel Desilets is a singer-songwriter with an old soul. Some of his songs are humorous, some are sweet, and some are downright cosmic; but all of them are loving celebrations of life. You might say they're Marcelebrations!' -David (KC) Cramer 'Marcel's music feels to me like a favorite pair of slippers with a perfect cup of coffee on a lazy summer morning at the cottage. It's as unaffected as the heart of the Canadian Shield, and as beautiful.' -Jaylene Johnson.
