"A poet of microcosm with a stereoscopic vision, a balladeer with a whole lot of landscape in his voice..Hurley is one of the great songwriters of our time"
–National Book Award Winner Colum McCann
National Book award winner, Colum McCann said “He’s an old seanchaí in a rock star’s shoes, a poet of microcosm with a stereoscopic vision, a balladeer with a whole lot of landscape in his voice. Joe Hurley is one of the great song writers of our time”
In 2011, Joe Hurley, Johnny Depp and Keith Richards received universal raves and won two Audie Awards for their narration of Richard’s best-selling LIFE, including the prestigious “Audiobook of The Year.” Entertainment Weekly raved “Given the choice between reading Keith Richards’ rocking memoir, or listening to Johnny Depp, Joe Hurley and Richards breathe LIFE into my ear, there’s no contest: The rasping, growling, low-down audiobook is where I want to be with Johnny, Joe and Keith contributing their own singular infusions of soul and swagger"
Hurley’s latest CD, “The House That Horse Built (Let The Great World Spin)” was co-written with Colum McCann, inspired by his award-winning novel, soon to be a JJ Abrams film.
Recently Hurley sang with Jimmy Webb and Judy Collins on 'Ghost Riders In The Sky' for her 'Paradise' CD, played sold-out dates with Ian Hunter, and performed with Laura Cantrell and the Waco Bros. While 'Musical Artist in Residence' at ILB in Berlin, he read with www.Authorsforpeace.org on International Peace Day , an event now featured in 2012 Guinness Book of World Records.
