Michael Hurley seems like a nice man, and he is good at making up songs.

From wikipedia:

Michael Hurley is known to have four children. Three with a girlfriend he called "Pasta". Their names are Daffodil, a girl, and two boys, Jordan and Colorado. His daughter, also is a singer, songwriter and guitarist, who goes by the name of Glitter Oh Dazzle. Michael later had another son, named Rollin, with a girlfriend named Kim.
Hurley has done much of the artwork for his own albums, and the two oft-featured cartoon wolves, Jocko and Boone, have been something of a theme across Hurley's musical career, even appearing in their own comics. Both were based on real dogs that Hurley owned.
Hurley resides in Astoria, Oregon.

Hurley's debut album, First Songs, was recorded for Folkways Records in 1965 on the same reel-to-reel machine that taped Lead Belly's Last Sessions. He was discovered by blues and jazz historian Frederick Ramsey III, and subsequently championed by boyhood friend Jesse Colin Young, who released his 2nd & 3rd albums on The Youngbloods' Warner Bros. imprint, Raccoon. In the late 1970's, Hurley made three albums for Rounder, all of which have since been reissued on CD. His 1976 LP Have Moicy, a collaboration with the Unholy Modal Rounders and Jeffrey Frederick & The Clamtones, was named "the greatest folk album of the rock era" by The Village Voice's Robert Christgau.
In 1996, Koch Records released Wolfways with Hurley backed by Mickey Bones on drums. Tours with Son Volt and high praise from younger performers like Lucinda Williams, Vic Chesnutt, Calexico, Cat Power, and Robin Holcomb followed.
In 2001, Locust Music reissued Hurley's debut under the new title Blueberry Wine with new artwork contributed by Hurley.
Gnomonsong released a new Michael Hurley album titled Ancestral Swamp on September 18, 2007. Backing was provided by longtime Hurley associate David Reisch of the Holy Modal Rounders and new friends Tara Jane O'Neil and Lewi Longmire.

    you should connect Amy Annelle cos she toured with Michael Hurley. I wish he'd come to the UK. He's a genius.

    I saw him play recently here in Portland at the second anniversary of Papa G's. We accidentally sat at his girlfriend's table, and he seemed kinda irritated that I wanted him to sign my vinyl with a sharpie instead of a pen. He sat and chatted with my roommate about guitars and places they've lived for a while, though. In short, he made me feel like an asshole, but I don't mind, I'm just glad I got to see him.
