Raw. Sincere. Diverse. New Mexicana.
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’ first two albums, “Mother Ditch” (2001) and “When We Were Big” (2003), were self-released and helped launch his career internationally. His most recent album “Cactusman vs. the Blue Demon” (2005), as well as an album currently in production are on the Frogville label out of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Boris’ music can be haunting like “Torn Faith” (2005 Cactusman vs. the Blue Demon) or whimsical like the recent “Pony Ride”. It can be full of reverence like “Charles Mingus Bird” (2005 Cactusman vs. the Blue Demon) or pensive like “Santa Rosa Plums” (2003 When We Were Big).
