About Cormac McCarthy:
Cormac McCarthy’s release of this fifth recording, Collateral, sends out to his listeners the highly anticipated follow up to his release Curious Thing.
The new release, for Cormac, provides a very fine recording featuring outstanding studio musicians. Collateral is the product of a mature writer, musician (with his own work on guitar & harmonica), performer, humorist, and family man. No quality is lost on this album and it is clear that the art comes from the life of a man who has turned a kind heart and a keen eye towards the life around him, and shared it with us all through talents seasoned by fan pleasing shows around the country.
While Cormac is not, as often queried, the alter ego of the New York Times Best Selling Author (“All the pretty horses, ” Blood Meridian”, etc.,) his background in literature, his rural roots, and his knack for penning a great line would make some comparisons easy to draw, and since we’ve never heard tell of whether or not the Kentucky born novelist can sing, we’ll have to leave the contest open.
Cormac McCarthy made his singing debut on WKRC Radio in Cincinnati, as a three-year old belting out “Davy Crockett” on his father’s radio show. He returned to public performance some twenty years later, singing his own compositions with a bit more experience in his voice.
Presently, Cormac and his wife Sammie Haynes live in a small town in southern Maine adjacent to the lively Seacoast arts scene centered around Portsmouth, NH.
