2007 marked the debut of SwampDaWamp with the release of their self-titled CD, 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 one 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.
