World renowned horse trainer and cowboy musician Mike Beck plays The Attic! From his formative years as a hand on the Dorrance Ranch in central California, where he learned to work with horses from master horsemen Bill and Tom Dorrance, through his years punching cows on ranches in Montana and Nevada, to his regular appearances at The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevado, and his many collaborations with the likes of Ian Tyson and Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Mike Beck is the real deal. A lot of guys wear a hat and say that, Mike doesn't need to say it.
Here's what some of the others say:
"Mike Beck is one of those writers with the cowboy in his heart. His songs are filled with braided rawhide and mission bells..... Listen up, friend!" -Tom Russell
"Mike's plowing new ground. He's not re-recording the old Hollywood matinee music from the 30's and 40's. You've got to have focus and keep producing good stuff. I think he walks that.... he's better than all those newer western guys." - Ian Tyson
"Mike plays the guitar like a Byrd. His strings do things that mine never could do. They obey the slightest finger-touch commands like a fine reining horse."
