2007 marked the debut of SwampDaWamp with the release of their self-titled CD (Big Penny Entertainment-Charlotte, NC), an infectious blend of rock and blues with a southern flavor, all in support of Michaels\' powerful, gravelly voice. It\'s no wonder music lovers from rock to blues to country fans...from college age to baby-boomers, love this feel-good, high-octane music. At once unique and familiar, a much sought-after but rarely achieved combination; it has struck a chord with fans all over. Since its release, “SwampDaWamp” has garnered much critical acclaim. The CD was selected as # 11 of the TOP 23 ALBUMS OF 2007 by Eartaste.com , putting them in the company of such artists as John Fogerty, Rickie Lee Jones, and Ray Davies. It also has received rave reviews from the UK\'s top music publication, “Blues Matters.” In addition, they continue to receive radio airplay throughout the country on college, mainstream, internet and are a favorite at XM Satellite Radio.
While almost instantaneously becoming known for their free-spirited, sing-and-dance-along live shows, SwampDaWamp has amassed a huge and rapidly growing fan base. Their music touches people of all ages and backgrounds, as evidenced by the over 18,000 My Space friends they have spanning the globe from the U.S. to France to Australia, proving that the feel-good SwampDaWamp sound is universally engaging and contagious.
On the heels of their successful debut CD, this year brings the release of the band\'s much-anticipated sophomore effort, SwampDaWamp 2.0, which is now available for digital download at all major online retailers.
SwampDaWamp is currently on tour, which will continue through the Summer and Fall of 2008 in support of their upcoming release.
