Mary Cutrufello, When The Night Is Through

[]

By PopMatters Staff

Texas roots rocker, by way of Connecticut, Mary Cutrufello pulls out all the stops on her major label debut. With a sound equally indebted to the Rolling Stones, John Mellencamp, Bob Seger, and Janis Joplin and a middle American lyrical sensibility, Cutrufello is an outstanding guitarist and powerful singer whose career is clearly on the rise. I’ve read the criticism that Cutrufello has a slight tendency to “over-sing” a song, but that’s more out of passion and enthusiasm than any sort of pseudo-soul posturing (yes, I mean you, Michael Bolton).
