"The Mike King Collective are an unmitigated delight. A blast of immaculate timing, rhythm and vocal performances, the true impact of their enchanting presentation is almost impossible to put into words. Perhaps it is best expressed by the question of why these guys haven’t been signed by a label yet."
Anne Korn, The Upcoming
"The sheer uplifting joy and love the group exudes makes you realise that they are indeed a true musical family but also belies the incredible musical sophistication and complexity which streams through every song. The harmonic structure and musical arrangements of the material are stunning and rarely found on these shores.
The expansive repertoire takes you far beyond the expected and where other "choirs" fear to tread. MKC is a gem that we are very lucky to have!"
