What the Critics are saying...

Top 10 Recordings for 2008
# 3 - Cutaway Crossing - "This Exit"
Present Magazine
"For a debut album it’s very assured. There are lots of extremely familiar Americana sounds and influences, including Whiskeytown and The Old 97's, but they’ve certainly got their own distinctive sound. There are no weak songs on This Exit - indeed, there are some very good ones, including "Texas Way", which swings along nicely and has a subtle feel of Little Feat’s finest to it. However the outstanding track is "Welcome Back To Tennessee", a song with an easy on the ears melody that effortlessly washes over the listener. The closest comparison I can give is Dylan’s “Knocking On Heaven's Door”. Definitely worth a spin and probably a purchase."
Stevo - Leicester Bangs - UK
"...the five guys have solidly insterted their mark with "This Exit", a collection of eleven swinging alt-country rock songs in the style of similar artists such as Son Volt, The Gourds and Wilco. With the intense rocking "I Believe", they immediately give their musical calling card to the listener, and "Don't Need To Talk About It" has a strong beat and substructure. Their motto is "Believe In Music" and that is endorsed in almost every song on "This Exit"."
Valsam - Rootstime Belgium
"[Cutaway Crossing] delivers homespun lyrics, a beat that rides big in the saddle, and an Americana rock guitar sound that resonates on a cellular level, Cutaway Crossing has crafted music that a lot of people ought to identify with easily... The music doesn’t pander to anyone. It’s American music. Whether it’s the country flare, the rock-n-roll punch, or the “just folks” friendliness, Cutaway Crossing is the kind of music that would feel at home at a float trip campfire along the banks of the Current River, on the open road while rumbling down the highway, down at the lake blaring off the boat dock, or streaming off the back deck at home while raking leaves and enjoying a cold one. Yep, these songs could find a home just about anywhere."
Pete Dulin -
The Cutaway Crossing story:

Cutaway Crossing is five Midwestern guys who all share an incredible passion for living life, creating, and playing great music. Their motivation is singular and simple - passion! "If you don't have passion - you've got nothin'! If you're not passionate about what you're doing, just stop doing it!"

The name "Cutaway Crossing" represents the origins and the essence of the band. All of their tunes are developed on acoustic guitars - the majority being cutaways....
Also, playing together is the band's reason for "cutting away" from what they normally do, day in, and day out.

Cutaway Crossing's music is a "crossing" of a number of influences, genres, textures, and years of very different experiences crossing back and forth across the US. There ya have it. CUTAWAY CROSSING!
