Boris McCutcheon (from the album I’m Here, Let Me In)
For a farmer, Boris McCutcheon has done a lot of traveling. Born in Massachusetts, Boris grew up on farms, His journey away from working the land gave him an opportunity to view more territory, and he fell in love with the New Mexico landscape when the highway brought him through the American Southwest. Boris McCutcheon began studies in organic farming in 1992, attending University of California Santa Cruz Farm and Garden program, relocating to Santa Fe in 1996 and opening a landscaping business. Music was an equal piece of passion for Boris McCutcheon, and at urging of a musical acquaintance, he began a band and returned to New England in 1999, looking to Boston to begin his musical career. I’m Here, Let Me In is the recent release from Boris McCutcheon, its songs audio snapshots of the life around him, the scenes both current (“A Week Before the 4th of July”) and visions into the future (“I Blew It”).
Farming and music came together for Boris McCutcheon when he moved to an off-the-grid farm in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains where he and his wife raised crops and a family as Boris wrote songs. I’m Here, Let Me In is rugged Roots music, touched by Folk and Americana, the rhythms a scratchy shuffle in “Lazy with You”, Country Folk in the bright strums of “Golden Days”, and desert campfire Folk songs “Godzilla vs. King Kong” as “Magpies” flies on a Bluesy ramble that keeps the mood well for the late-night Blues noir of “Shake It Up”. The songs of Boris McCutcheon digs Roots deep into the American musical landscape as I’m Here, Let Me In rides a rock’n’roll beat down “Cherry Lane” and dances out a groove for the woman boogieing into “It’s Her Turn Now” to receive a well-deserved thank you.
