Album Notes

“Home” is the running theme on Starlite Drive-In Saturday Night, the third release from central California coast songwriter Michael Gaither. Backed by full, yet sparse band arrangements (percussion and stand-up bass, one lead instrument per song), this new story collection picks up where Michael’s previous records left off, allowing his “write what you know” approach to reflect on 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)

"Grows with every repeated listening and does not have a bad track. Buy it and wear it out." (David Stafford, KKUP Radio, Cupertino CA)

Getting better all the time!
Since I met Michael almost 10 years ago (yikes!) I have seen his songwriting become more and more unique, fun, interesting, and just down-right well-written. Starlight Saturday Night continues this trend. Great songs that I think we all can relate to.

Starlite Drivein
Another great CD by Michael! Love the songs and the memories it brings...

It's All Here
It's been great hearing these songs develop one by one at Michael Gaither's concerts, and I'm glad to now have them as a collection on this awaited album. Gaither's connections to dogs and horses are not imagined, they're his real-life stuff. Also deep are his people songs: "She's More Connected" and "Whiskey Hill" offer simple wisdoms from a grounded small-town perspective. And he's got room for humor: how fitting that the groans and grumbles in "Tell Me Where it Hurts" are presented with a blues beat! Thanks once again, Michael.

Life to Lyrics
This album really hits home. “Starlight Drive in Saturday night” brings back memories of the family movie nights when I was a kid in pajamas with feet and later a teenager going on the first date with my future bride. Mike writes songs that everyone can relate to. “Now It's a Taqueria”, “Tell me where it Hurts” and “She’s My Superpower” are a few of my personal favorites. Mike creates a great musical mixture of humor and truth. You've got to hear it to understand

More great songs & stories
Starlite Drive-in is a very enjoyable, comfortable listen. Love the fiddle work. I have all Michael's records and they get better and better with each one.
