Hello! We just discovered your song about the Garden Spot Pavilion. What a fantastic tribute to the good 'ol days here in Elk Mountain, Wyoming. Thanks for the music to remember that old dance hall. We will certainly direct the locals and others to check out your music.

Hello Mike: This is your Indiana fan club (both of us) and we were out your way the last week of September/first week of October and your store said you retired... Good for you sad for us. We were hoping that you had a new album for us to purchase a few copies. When might the next one come out? We love the West and we love your music and so to us at least... your music is the music of the Tetons and Wyoming. I sure hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying your retirement. Blessings to you our favorite Cowboy.

Howdy Mike, Was great to see and hear you again ... what an Anniversary Day for us --- you and your band playing in Thermopolis for the Wedding of the Waters Pageant. Just think, we got to dance an anniversary dance to the same guy who played our Wedding Song in Centennial some thirty years ago ... only in Wyoming. Here's hoping our trails cross again before thirty years go by. Thanks again Mike for your songs and for you. Mark & Valerie

I have been a fan of your music for many years. We first saw you about 40 years ago in Odessa Texas at a little biker bar, there was a huge brawl that night, then about 15 years later in Aspen, you caught a glass some asshole threw at you that night, amazing! Then we were so delighted to see you last month in La Ventana Mexico. I wanted to say hi, but you vanished during the break and we had to fly out of La Paz early. Have you made a deal with the Devil? you look about the same every time we run into you, and just keep getting better. I am ordering all of your albums, hope to see you again somewhere. Love your music!! - Sheryl

The Tom Horn ballad lead me to your site. You have a solid and truthful voice perfect for Western Americana tunes. As a Tom Horn fan with a touch of wrangler in my blood, I cannot say enough about your tribute to this legend. Awesome!!! A real western singer and a treasure that is virtually untouched and unspoiled by usual commercialism. I salute you and your band sir, thanks a million.

Prairie Blues



"Huriwtz's Prairie Blues come across as natural as breathing"

    - John Conquest -3rd Coast Music                                                      

 "Mike Hurwitz writes song like Larry Mahan rode broncs"

     - Dave Stamey


" a seemingly effortless delivery that goes down like a smooth, perfectly aged shot of fine scotch whiskey " 

         -Sing Out!


"Mike Hurwitz's voice and stories have been in the grain of the American West for a long time. Listen to his tunes and you'll be there too" 

   - Greg Keeler - Big Sky Journal


"Hurwitz's dusky baritone resonates with the sounds of mountains he's pondered, horses he's wrangled and land he's travelled. He's the real deal."

     - Meredith Oaks


"Michael Hurwitz grew up with a guitar in one hand and reins in the other. Along the road he's howled with coyotes and picked with the greats, and has become the best of both - wild and untamed."

    - American Cowboy Magazine
