Gulf Stream Breezes
Umpqua Records proudly introduces the rest of the country to one of the Pacific Northwest's favorite singer/songwriter J. Micheal Laferty in his debut CD, Gulf Stream Breezes. Recorded at NoMountain Studio in Midland Texas, nationally reknown engineer Nick Carlton captures the strength and depth that has placed Micheal at the top of the heap on the West Coast. Micheal insisted on an honest recording, and with just his voice, a guitar, and a digital percussion section, what you hear on the CD is identical to what you hear at each of Micheal's live shows. Eleven songs written from the perspective of a wandering sailor and modern-day troubador, this CD has been described as Gulf & Western music at it's best. Take a listen and discover for youself what makes Micheal one of the most sought after Performing Songwriters on the West Coast.
