Michael Rudolph Cummings is mostly known for being the vocalist/guitarist for East Coast stoner grunge band Backwoods Payback. His solo material is equally dark but subdued in volume and temperance, recalling the ditch-trilogy era of Neil Young and the slower moments of Townes Van Zandt, while also leaning towards contemporary solo acts such as The White Buffalo.

His new album and Ripple Music debut “You Know How I Get” will see release in October 2022, as part of their revered acoustic series « Blood and Strings » (which previously presented stellar solo releases from The Obsessed’s Scott « Wino » Weinrich and Mos Generator’s Tony Reed). To support its release, mRc will embark on a US tour with his solo band, the roster of which reads like a who’s who of east coast underground mainstays, literally some of the best players out there including Mel Parsonz of Royal Thunder, Patrick Shannon of All Else Failed and Mike Bardzik of The Boils.
