Many musicians might say or think the torch of Americana/roots music has been passed on to them, but they'd be hard pressed to compare or compete with Professor Louie & Crowmatix. None other than Rick Danko named Aaron Louis Hurwitz "Professor Louie" during their long partnership in a duo and as bandmates in the Rick Danko Band.
And as The Band mates as well, Hurwitz co-produced, engineered and played on the final recordings of The Band.
The touchstones don't end there; Crowmatix drummer Gary Burke (born and raised in Troy) lists Bob Dylan and the Rick Danko Band as credits, and he has been a frequent sub for Randy Ciarlante in The Band.
Bassist Frank Campbell has held down the low end for Levon Helm, Rick Danko and Asleep at the Wheel.
Guitarist Josh Colow has bent strings for Jesse Winchester, while Miss Marie sang on albums by The Band ("Jubilation"), Rick Danko and Mercury Rev.
Others may admire, and emulate, The Band, but Professor Louie and The Crowmatix have performed with them and lived with them. The Crowmatix have released seven albums of organic, well-crafted tunes and masterful musicianship. With these impeccable credentials, as well as an inherent sense of musical history, spending an evening with the Crows can be more than rewarding.
They have the torch.
