“Hyram Posey’s music blows like a soft wind out of the southwest. It carries with it bits and pieces of mountain tops, canyons and the desert floor; and paints with all the colors of nature a wondrous sound both haunting and revealing. The listener is treated to images of smoke on the horizon, coyotes and hawks gliding on airstreams and wild rivers running free. A virtuoso muscian, Hyram Posey is one of a kind…original, and his music is AMERICA!”
