Whether you label it “Americana,” “folk,” or “singer-songwriter”, Michael Gaither is happy being called a storyteller. A west coast native, he takes the “write what you know” idea to heart, crafting songs that cover small-town nostalgia as well as modern technology. Always with plenty of humor in the mix.
Michael plays both solo or with a band and is available for wineries, private events, house concerts, and festivals. Want to book Michael? Have an available date? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (831) 288-2226.
Michael turned to songwriting and performing after a background in journalism and a narrow brush with standup comedy. (He sold jokes to Jay Leno. A long time ago. Back when Jay Leno was funny.) Michael has released four CDs of original material, all of which have received international airplay. Offstage, he produces and hosts the “Songs and Stories” podcast, an interview series with other songwriters.
