The term "Americana" is one that gets thrown around a lot in music. CUTE BOOTS call themselves "Americana" because they believe their band should consist of a collection of songs and stories that reflect the blue-collar experience of working American musicians. Born from the eclectic indie scene in Atlanta, GA, Cute Boots' piano-driven brand of "city-folk" is influenced by singer/songwriters like Paul Simon or James Taylor and energetic collaborative bands such as The Band, or Bruce Springsteeen and the E-Street Band. Their music employs melodic harmonies that are passionate and sincere, making for compelling live performances. There's more, though. Cute Boots believe in working hard to deliver shows that are entertaining on multiple levels, which is why they script out and rehearse their live shows from songs to dialogue as though they were plays. Stories sung in songs interweave with ones told in between them, each connected by a common theme: the American experience. Composed of five ambitious old friends who call themselves Otis, Betty, Chief, Dr. Thumps, and Cyclone Charlie, Cute Boots is just warming up. With the release of a demo and two EP's, the band's developed a devoted local following in just over a year and aims to get a whole hell of a lot done in 2013.
