"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 "
"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."

Alta School Cowboy Choir with Michael Hurwitz and the Aimless Drifters (April 2005)
Traditional, classic and original cowboy songs sung by a talented group of kids from a rural Wyoming school and produced by Michael Hurwitz. Made possible through a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The grade school kids, all 52 of 'em , many from fourth and fifth generation ranch families, go to the little Alta school, just a mile from the Idaho border, just like their parents and grandparents did. This album is theirs--an audio snapshot of a quickly disappearing way of life. Some of the songs are traditional cowboy songs over a hundred years old, others are newer, and some the kids and I wrote together. We all had a grand old time doin' this , I think you can hear it in the music. - Mike
" Just plain makes me feel good when I listen to it.. . this is one you definitely want to add to your collection" -- Tommy Tucker , Cowboy Troubadour
