musicspectrum.org/2011/10/21/everyone-in-the-same-room-the- spirit-showing-up-as-michael-powers-looks-for-the-truth/ In December, Powers will be inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame as part of the Local Blues Talent of New York. Such an induction recognizes the 40 years that Powers has contributed his talents to the blues world. Being first influenced by the porch blues of the South, but then later lapping up all of the British blues rock bands, Powers brings his wide-ranging talents to two New York City residencies: an acoustic show each Mondays and a full-on electric band show on Fridays. That is, when Powers isn???t traveling to blues festivals and shows around the globe... Benjamin C. Squires

His first record, Onyx Root, was released in 2004 and received two Blues Music Award nominations, including contemporary blues album of the year.
