Son of The Wild Frontier, you will realize, is an understatement after one listen to a Mose McCormack tune. This Alabama born songwriter, literally, “…came from Alabama with a banjo on his knee…”. Packed up his guitar and “headed west young man”. The stark, haunting images of, raw, western reality, come stampeding through your brain. Some times dark, foreboding. ” The curse of man in search of God, to be living in desolate wonder”.
Then, around the bend, you find a song that takes you to, “..sweeter than molasses, that pretty little gal of mine…”. Love seems to be the final outcome. Sometimes it’s as if he’s been spying on your private life. What ever the approach, provoking thought, is his delight and living the songs he writes.
Mose is still layin’ down his Aggressive Country style from his home base, on the banks of The Rio Grande, in New Mexico. Grinding out his Industrial Honky-Tonk up and down the Rio. With the help of his wife Rebecca, and daughter Alma, Mose manages to run the farm, plant a “mess’o’ beans”, maintain the fruit and nut trees, keep 6 dogs and 25 chickens in line, and make it to market with the produce.
You’ll find the family selling “maters” and pitchin’ CD’s. If you ever get a chance to see Mose perform, you’ll see that 50 years of playing for folks and 6 CD’s recorded, (and for humility’s sake, a few days in jail), makes the deliveries straight from the heart to yours. The Ol’ Workhorse is still pullin’ the load…
