McCarthy is established as one of New England's finest singer songwriters. "I rarely issue directives but, next time he comes within 100 miles you must go hear him!" (Seth Rogovoy -The Boston Phoenix). The Phoenix also chose him as one of the Top Ten concerts (which included Bob Dylan and Ani Defranco).
Two-time nominee for the Boston Music Awards, McCarthy tours nationally sharing his delightful humor and performing his finely crafted songs. He has what The Boston Globe calls a "devastating wit and enormous writing gifts, capable of putting chills into your spine or a silly grin on your face." Cormac's songs reveal some of the magic of real life in a truthful, superbly literate style, delivered with a soulful baritone and a hot guitar. Cormac McCarthy's last CD, "Picture Gallery Blues" was called an "unassuming masterpiece" by the Boston Phoenix and word has spread that his new CD release, "Curious Thing" outshines it. Even before its scheduled release, "Curious Thing" is getting high acclaim from fellow musicians and radio personalities alike. McCarthy's has also recently re-released his first self-titled, self distributed recording which contains so many of the gems that are often requested by Cormac's loyal New England fans. . "Without exaggerating, he is included in my list of best songwriters in America. That list also includes Bob Dylan and Paul Simon." -- John Derado, Front Porch Music.
