Cowpunk / alt-country pioneer Pete Berwick has been touring and recording and hammering out hundreds of shows a year, as a solo artist and with his bands, for over four decades. Along with releasing six albums, he is also an author and actor, and has written and published four novels, as well as having appeared in film and television.
He is also an amateur boxer. “Can’t kill a man born to hang” is Berwick’s motto, as he fearlessly travels from town to town and roadhouse bar to roadhouse bar with a lifetime of critically acclaimed songs and his battered six string.
Over a dozen of his songs have been featured in movies and television, several of his albums have been placed in the year’s top ten by various media sources, and his “Ain’t No Train Outta Nashville” album, recorded and shelved on Music Row in 1992 and eventually released in 2007, peaked at #5 on XCOUNTRY RADIO, now OUTLAW RADIO.
“Island” is Pete Berwick’s sixth studio album, with backing band The Mugshot Saints delivering the musical firepower, produced by Jason Botka at Skye Bleu Studios in Villa Park, Illinois, and according to his critics, his finest work and masterpiece, scraped from the trenches and ruins of the long, hard miles and highs and lows of his hard-fought battles in the music industry.
