In April of 2007, singer/songwriter Jonathan Warren packed up his life, and his guitar to move from Knoxville, Tennessee to the Northwest. He brought with him strong roots in traditional blue grass and old-time music inherent in the Southern Appalachians. While playing gigs and open-mic nights around Boise, Idaho, Warren met and soon after teamed up with David Sather-Smith, a vocalist and classically trained cellist. Dave and Jon's musical relationship progressed over the next couple years. Boise native, Austin Clark, added his talents on the violin and soon became a crucial member of the Billy Goats. The trio met, Andrew Smith, a San Francisco grown drummer and percussionist who finalized the band in 2011. The band has since been based in Boise, Idaho and has been steadily gigging and touring.
The Cottonwood Cutups were conceived by the many campfire jams held in the Hoh Rain Forrest of the Olympic National Park.
A mix of influences meld Country, Old-Time, Rag-time, Bluegrass, Rock and Jazz to bring about their sound.
Comprised of brothers Jesse (Mandolin/Banjo/Harp/Vocals) and Joel Hill (Guitar/Vocals) and Brother-in-Law, Ryan Ramsdell (Upright Bass),
the members of The Cottonwood Cutups are sure to have you stomping before sunrise.
