“Lump of Coal” / Holiday Tunes and Live Solo Tracks (2014): The new EP features holiday songs spanning Thanksgiving (“Black Friday’s Eve”) and Christmas (“The Krampus Comes Out Tonight,” “Go Tell It On the Mountain”) along with a few live tunes, including “Highway 17″ with new verses.
I’d welcome this “Lump of Coal” in my stocking! This glows with the warmth of holiday good tidings. My favorite tune is “Entertaining an Angel”, closely followed by “Black Fridays Eve” “Krampus” is also fun, yet dark! I plan on playing this on my show. (David Howard, KVMR Radio)
Michael Gaither’s new CD, “Lump of Coal” is a nice addition to anyone’s holiday music collection. Listening to Michael’s songs is like having a friend tell you a story; a friend who is honest, witty, has a way with words and a wonderful, pleasing voice that makes it a joy to listen to. (Jackie Locken, KKUP Radio)
“Starlite Drive-In Saturday Night” (2012): Guitars, mandolins, and fiddles drive this Americana story collection that mixes nostalgia and humor, tales of moonshine, horses, and coyotes, and observations of modern life in a small American town.
“Michael Gaither does it again. Evocative lyrics, humor, heart-tugging, and stellar musicianship make Starlite Drive-In Saturday Night a tasty treat. Now I want a taco.” (Natalie Davis, Grateful Dread Radio)
