ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Austin, Texas’ Michael Thomas is putting his own brand on today’s country music. With an extensive background of writing and performing pop, rock, and country music, Michael is now embracing his South East Texas musical roots to create a new and exciting sound in the Country genre. On his debut self-titled album, Michael exemplifies his influences. Harking back to the sounds of late 60’s/70’s California country-rock(Gram Parsons,Poco,The Eagles)into the 80’s fiery Cowpunk scene(Rank and File,The Blasters,Lone Justice,The Babylonian Cowboys and Dwight Yoakam). Michael is also adding his homegrown influences such as George Jones, Ray Price, Freddy Fender, Roy Orbison, and Buck Owens as well as the Austin Outlaw Country sounds(Willy Nelson,Waylon Jennings,and Rusty Weir). As Dwight brought his Kentucky Hillbilly roots to Hollywood, Michael is bringing his “Swamps of Texas”, as he calls it, soulful roots up-to-date and he’s kicking down the door into the new millennium of county music. With a fine mixture of solid dance-hall grooves, great lyrics, and memorable melodies, Michael’s first solo record is a sure bet to be a hit with country and pop music fans alike.
Born in Beaumont,Texas, Michael Thomas was surrounded by country music and down home, working class country attitude. “Most of these songs are based around a single character”, he says. “I’ve been around the block more than a few times and I’ve seen the best AND the worst in folks (and in myself), Michael adds “I’m just thankful that I’ve lived to tell about it”. After attending Lamar University in Beaumont, Michael relocated to Austin.
Michael’s musical background is evident in the record. Although the sound is certainly Texas Country, his years of experience as a writer and performer of pop, rock and country music comes vividly shining through on every tune. Michael Thomas is destined to put his own unique brand on today’s country music scene and bring even more “Texas Heat” to the rest of the world.

One of the absolute best albums of 2007. It got that perfect mixture of the Texas/California country/rock. I just love it & feel sorry for the other artists i bought recently 'cause they don´t get half as much air-time on my private radio-show as Mr.Thomas. Looking forward to see & hear what this guy can do in the future. Keep up the good work Michael.
