“What I love about Michael is his natural ability to tell a good story in song and relate to his audience.  There is a sublime humour in much of what he writes and the accompaniment uncluttered, allowing his voice to take full command.  Christmas isn’t yet with us but Michael’s version of the time-honoured ‘Go Tell It On The Mountain’, with delightful banjo clopping away in the background, will be featured on my Somer Valley 97.5FM ‘special’ during December, as will ‘The Krampus Comes Out Tonight’.  The new EP. ‘Lump Of Coal’, exceeds all expectations, with three ‘Holiday Tunes’ and three ‘Live Solo Tracks’ – but don’t just take my word for it, go buy it!!! (Bryan Chalker, Somer Valley 97.5FM, Somer UK)

“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, Nevada City, CA)

“Michael Gaither’s new CD,  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, Cupertino CA)

“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.

Spotted Mule and Other Tales” (2006): Bluegrass, folk, and Telecaster-driven country arrangements drive these stories about big cars, bad drivers, a final appearance from Johnny and June, unrequited love at a music festival, and (of course) mules.

    I caught your show on KKUP 91.5 FM 2 weeks ago.

    I loved your material, and will be checking it out more. “Highway 17″ might have been my favorite.

    As a long time listener and supporter of KKUP, I appreciate your taking the time to appear there.
