The reviews are coming in:

"CURIOUS THING is a soft-spoken triumph!" - Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe

Cormac McCarthy’s latest release, “Curious Thing”, not only rattles the imagination with its unclassifiable nature but also soothes the soul with its pure unbridled simplicity and collar-straight delivery...thoughtful memoirs folded neatly into a brilliant collection of songs." Martin England, The Portsmouth Herald

“…a new McCarthy recording is a major listening event, one to spend considerable time savoring – Arthur Wood, Folk Wax

"Top ten Concerts ...- Bob Dylan, Ani DeFranco, Cormac McCarthy...
Next time he comes within 100 miles, you must go hear him!"
- Seth Rogovoy, Boston Phoenix

“McCarthy is as brilliant a songwriter as he is a genial performer."
- Louis Black, The Austin Chronicle

“A distinctive songwriter with a warm, powerful, inherently melodic baritone, a fine guitarist and a devastating wit ... enormous writing gifts, capable of putting chills into your spine or a silly grin on your face..."
- Jeff McLaughlin, The Boston Globe

I produced a house concert for Cormac. He remains a special person and WONDERFUL musician.
