Hyram’s music was reviewed by Steven F. Adams of SoundWaveOne.
“Hyram really has got to be heard with his phenomenal abilities to almost time travel with you with his musicality. Hyram is simply put amazing talent and his work is masterful & a real joy to listen to. His music is soothing, fresh and invigorating to the soul, and extends through my mind. It takes me away which is my meadow, or to a place of relaxation and total peace within. “Skinner Back” is another song that incorporates Hyram’s fiddle with an almost bluesy feel and I could feel his emotional value that he conveys with his total musicality throughout this amazingly and quite honestly blown away by his talents, with all the musicians that I have written reviews on Hyram brings a sound that I have never been exposed to, however is very expressive within his music and can hear his passion throughout.”
— Steven F. Adams, SoundWaveOne
“Hyram Posey’s music blows like a soft wind out of the southwest. It carries with it bits and pieces of mountain tops, canyons and the desert floor; and paints with all the colors of nature a wondrous sound both haunting and revealing. The listener is treated to images of smoke on the horizon, coyotes and hawks gliding on airstreams and wild rivers running free. A virtuoso muscian, Hyram Posey is one of a kind…original, and his music is AMERICA!”
– John Hartman, Alive Records, Hollywood, California
“He’s a champion fiddler…. after mastering “Contest Fiddle” he went on to composing all types of fiddle music. If you enjoy fiddle music, you’re sure to enjoy HYRAM POSEY.”
– Johnny Gimble
“Hyram Posey, through his individual and thoroughly modern style, you can hear echos of the past, times when his great grandfather rode with Charles Goodnight, and feels his love for the land from whom the mythical cowboy emerged.”
– Bill Thompson, New Mexico Magazine
