Rhyne McCormick was born and raised in the mountains of central Pennsylvania, where he was first exposed to music the good old-fashioned way—on vinyl. The likes of Aretha Franklin, James Taylor and Jackson Browne made their way to his turntable growing up, thanks to his music-loving mother, whom he credits for exposing him to music early in his life. He recalls the memory of his mother yelling out to him from her bedroom, “start it again,” referencing her Jackson Browne album that she had already listened to over a dozen times that day. All afternoon, a young McCormick, just at an age of understanding how to use the turntable, gently lifted the needle and placed it on the edge again—careful not to scratch, of course. Between the constant visits to his mother’s vast record collection and his frequent church camp trips, McCormick was enveloped by music of many genres.

But if you ask him, he most intimately feels a connection with that old, gospel soul music, as is evidenced by tracks like Deeper and 5104 off of his newest album, Live at the Capitol Theatre. Friends and fellow musicians have described his music as “heartfelt” and having “soul,” a true slice of Americana—it encompasses a little bit of everything, including a throw-back to the original rock-n-roll soul of the 50’s and 60’s, seasoned with a dose of classic rock and topped off with a little bit of classic country and folk. It doesn’t get more apple pie than this. His music is something that is so familiar and so natural that you won’t even realize it was the first time you have ever heard it, because it reminds you of something you grew up on, no matter when you grew up.

McCormick demonstrates this ability on his most recent album, Live at the Capitol Theatre, produced by McCormick and Dave San Soucie, fellow musician and friend. This 5 song EP was recorded in April of 2009 at The Strand Capitol in York, Pennsylvania. The album includes songs that have his traditional, rock and soul sound such as Deeper and 5104 while he taps into a deeper and more moving sound in songs like Through These Eyes, The Train Song and Storm Runner, each song touching the listener in a way that McCormick is able to achieve through his thoughtful and inspirational lyrics.
