About Boris McCutcheon
Boris McCutcheon is a singer and songwriter of truly unique and engaging "Americana" songs. He plays guitar, harmonica and mandolin and he is backed by an incredible band of musicians known as "The Salt Licks". Once you hear his music, you will wonder how you ever got along without it!
Boris McCutcheon was born on Massachusetts farmland, but has found his place in the mountains of New Mexico. His writing and music are reflections of the characters he has encountered and the landscapes he has surrounded himself with. Currently, the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains provide inspiration but his songs are peppered with experiences on the shores of Cape Cod, Northern California, and Southwest deserts.
Boris' songs can range from haunting to whimsical, and full of reverence to rockin' sexy. Before taking up songwriting, Boris was a poet, and his compositions are a distillation of great love for American folk and roots music. His material is raw and guided by a deep connection to the natural world — with a sense of humor always mixed in.
