Led by recording engineer and producer Aaron “Professor Louie” Hurwitz on vocals, keyboard, and accordion, The Crowmatix repertoire is steeped in rock ’n’ roll, blues, Gospel, and American roots music, and features a compelling collection of original and traditional tunes. Louie is backed by his songwriting partner, vocalist, pianist, and percussionist, Miss Marie (Rick Danko).  Drummer Gary Burke (Bob Dylan, Joe Jackson), guitarist/vocalist John Platania (Van Morrison, Chip Taylor), and bassist Frank Campbell (Steve Forbert, Levon Helm) complete the talented and versatile quintet.


Professor Louie & The Crowmatix began as the studio backing band for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, The Band.  They also worked on numerous solo recording projects and live performances with Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, and Levon Helm.  “Working with Rick, Garth and Levon for 15 years was a great honor — and a lot of fun — and we’re proud of the music we created together,” says Louie.  “Their love of crafting musical stories based on American history had a strong influence on us, and I like to think we’re continuing that tradition in The Cromatix recordings.”


Grammy-nominated Professor Louie & The Crowmatix were inducted into the Southern Canadian Blues Hall of Fame and the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame.  Louie received the 2015 Robert H. Chambers Award for Excellence in the Traditional Arts from Common Ground on the Hill. They are currently touring in support of their 13th studio release, Crowin’ the Blues  (Woodstock Records 2017).


“Professor Louie’s upstate ensemble is an old school Americana template that jams out timeless rock, country, blues and New Orleans-influenced originals.”  -THE VILLAGE VOICE


“The Crowmatix tour nationally and abroad and every concert gets better than the last.”  -ELMORE MAGAZINE
