Album Notes
Hot Sun, Cool Water, Sandy Boots maintains the feel of Laferty’s last project Parrotheads in Cowboy Boots (Umpqua 2009), once again reminding the listener of the simplicity and timelessness of life on a tropical island. Laferty’s home on South Padre Island (just 8 miles up the beach from the mouth of the Rio Grande River and neighboring Mexico) is a major influence on his writing and sense of voice in his lyrics; with the rhythms and cadences of life on an international border bubble constantly just below the surface of his arrangements and melodies.
Laferty’s distinctive narrative and perspective, coined “Americana from the Tropical Tip of Texas”, is once again prominent with this release; the interplay and mixture of two dichotomies… a decidedly laidback beach feel, tempered with a gently ornery Texas attitude.

With the luxury of being a touring artist from Texas, and drifting in and out of Austin, Laferty has been able to once again surrounded himself with a who's who of reknown talent to record with him, and for major show, to travel with him as well. Arguably a major player in the Trop-Rock Americana genre, this product captures the sound and attitudes of what makes this genre so enjoyable and infectious to for the listener.
