PETE BERWICK is one of the original pioneers of COWPUNK, and has been touring and recording for over 35 years. As well as releasing six albums, he is also an author, and has written and published four novels. He is also an amateur boxer. "Can't kill a man born to hang" is Berwick's motto, as he travels from town to town 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.
Berwick is currently signed with LITTLE CLASS RECORDS, based in Kansas City.

Pete Berwick is one of the last of the hardcore troubadours.--Nashville Songwriter's Association

Pete Berwick is worthy to stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Dylan, Springsteen and Mellencamp. A tall statement but the music tells a story of a man who has poured his guts, his soul and his passion into his songs.--- Lucas Campbell, Rock Of Ages Radio Show, UK

With a defining sound like no other, Pete Berwick is a shining example of what the Roots Rock world expects from its performers. Well written songs, great vocal performances and a hard driving in your face sound flavored with a tad of country salt. ---Roots Music Report

Yeah, this is exactly why God ‘n' Gram put their heads together all those years ago. And folks like Berwick are exactly the ones who are still ramming the "alt" into "country." Methinks Hank would've done it this way. --- Fred Mills, Blurt Magazine

His gritty voice and style of music takes us all back to the days of country outlaws such as Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and yes, even David Allan Coe. His songs tell the stories of the blue collar, working class heroes. If you don't like Pete Berwick...ya'll can kiss my ass! ---Anthony Stone, Southern Thunder Radio

Berwick has delivered songs that will make you alternately cry in your beer and smile at your good fortune for not having to live the stories he sings about. Crank it up. ---Brian Noonan- Host, WGN Radio, Chicago

Berwick has earned his place among legends like Hank, Waylon, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle and John Mellencamp, and "Just Another Day In Hell" could be the soundtrack of a roadside bar.
His voice sings of broken hearts, pain and redemption, and as in real life endings are not always happy. ---Inzona Magazine your story. [+]
