Colin James Cutler

 

"The harmony on the track ‘Mama, Don’t Know Where Heaven Is’ mixes just like sugar and tea and makes me wonder if that is what Heaven actually sounds like." ~Mason P. Winfree, DJ, WUAG

"Gritty, real life, traditional yet modern folk tales with depth and meaning, a tale to tell, and a righteous message to boot.”
~Daniel Lucas of Boss Caine

”A fantastic singer-songwriter.”
~Jericho Keys, BBC Introducing, Radio York

"Now and In England, it's a stunning album, I loved it."
~John Godfrey, Radio Troubadour

Born in England and raised in the Midwest and Virginia, Colin has made a home out of the Blue Ridge roads between Loudoun County, Virginia and Greensboro, NC, for 7 years, until the Army took him to Qatar and Romania.  He has since settled in York, UK, to study creative writing.  

  His guitar- and banjo-driven tunes are set deep in the Appalachian old-time and blues traditions, with a wailing set of harmonicas to back them up. The stories are drawn from a life of traveling up and down rivers, across the Plains, into the mountains, and across the seas.

 Colin has released one full album, Nelson County Wayside (Greensboro 2016); an EP of songs based on Flannery O'Connor short stories, Peacock Feathers (Greensboro, January 2018), and an acoustic album, Now and In England (York, UK, April 2018). He is currently recording Stranger in the Promised Land with Young Thugs Studios in York.
