Boris McCutcheon grew up on a farm in Massachusetts, running through white pine swamps with songs playing in his head. He went north to study poetry. He went east to sing to the oceans. He went west to God’s country and breathed in the redwoods. He backtracked to the mountains of New Mexico and found gardens of mullein and chamisa and then the mother ditch. One clear day under New Mexican skies, he met a stuttering ex-junkie punk reggae drummer from Dallas who challenged him to drop the farmer’s plow and start playing the songs he had in his head. And this is what he did.

I'm Here. Let Me In.

Boris McCutcheon's new solo album

If you missed Meow Wolf's special New Mexico pre-release party of Boris's new solo album, I’m Here. Let Me In. (Cactusman/Frogville © 2018), you can still buy your copy here! Produced by Steve Mayone, the core tracks on I’m Here. Let Me In. were recorded by Boris himself at his studio in Dixon, NM. The album was mixed by Bill Palmer at Frogville Studios. It features many local favorites, as well as Steve's brilliant vocals and guitar work, the phenomenal accordion player John Shapiro, and two live tracks with The Mighty Salt Licks all-star line-up! The album sounds like nothing else Boris has done. I’m Here. Let Me In. will surely gain momentum in Boris’s traditional European stomping grounds, where he plans to tour with it next year.
