Mike Hurwitz and the Aimless Drifters have been playing and recording together for over 30 years. The touring band features Tom Broderick, one of the most original and soulful pedal steel players anywhere, and Jerry Linn who picks the bass with finesse and grace. Tom and Jerry both sing backup vocals.
Mike Hurwitz is a fourth generation Wyoming cowboy, and a singer-songwriter of some renown. He's worked as a surveyor, bronc stomper and guide. He grew up with the cowboy music of the West, along with Southern country blues and Cajun tunes learned from his Mississippi mother. His performances are a compelling mix of classy musicianship and songwriting with stories and humor from a life well-spent.
Mike and the Aimless Drifters has released five widely acclaimed albums in their signature “Prairie Blues” style, and maintain a busy touring schedule.
