Cormac McCarthy Music Cormac McCarthy

"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

Cormac McCarthy Collateral is as much a collection of compelling short stories... In these beautifully honed lyrics, each as rich in detail and emotion as a short novel, the listener divines the apotheosis of the mundane—that celebration of the common heart of America.
Bruce Pratt, liner notes for Collateral
