Micah Stampley has been hailed as one of the premiere male vocalists in the gospel music industry. His multi-octave range paired with a worshipper’s heart has been most notably heard on some of his hits including “Our God”, “War Cry”, and his breakout single recorded with Bishop T.D. Jakes, “Take My Life”. With accolades from some of gospel’s biggest influencers including Pastor Donnie McClurkin, Stampley is revered as one of the world’s leading worship leaders and psalmist. However, with all of his accomplishments he attributes a majority of his successes to his family upbringing in Baton Rouge, LA.
 His 2005 debut CD, The Songbook of Micah (produced by Cedric Thompson) became the second highest Gospel Chart debut (at No. 3) for a male vocalist at the time thanks to “War Cry” and “Take My Life.” He was a Stellar Award nominee for Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year. The CD was reissued by EMI Gospel in 2006 as “The Songbook of Micah: Deluxe with Remixes”.Since his debut album he has released five other projects including A Fresh Wind: The Second Sound (of which came two Stellar Award nominations), Ransomed (released on his own record label: Interface Entertainment), Release Me (released in association with Matthew Knowles’ Music World Music and included the hit song “Heaven on Earth”), One Voice, Love Never Fails (completed for Motown Gospel and co-produced with Aaron Lindsey and yielded a Dove Awards nomination), and To The King: Vertical Worship including the hit song “Be Lifted”.

About BUZZ Coffee and Winehouse
(Words from the owner Tremayne Perry)

BUZZ is a labor of love with several years of planning behind it. As a resident of my Southwest Atlanta neighborhood for over a decade, I found myself spending my time and money elsewhere in Atlanta. I wanted to bring my experience in other areas to my home, but unique to this wonderful community. I wanted to provide a gathering spot and a sense of place for diverse residents. 

BUZZ will be a premier stop for art, culture, and community. We will feature premium coffee from Stumptown Coffee Roasters as well as Old World and New World wines in an art filled setting. Come see what the BUZZ is all about!
