Artist Biography by

Kieran McGee delivers a sound that defies easy categorization but nonetheless marks him as a compelling new voice on the folk music scene. Inspired by the music and writing of Woody Guthrie, Skip James, Bob Dylan, the Carter Family, and Lou Reed, as well as the collected works of Jack Kerouac and other Beat poets and novelists, McGee has been described in the press as the "150-year-old soul of a Delta blues musician expressing itself through the body of a stunningly savvy 15-year-old." All in all, the native New Yorker delivers a sound that falls somehwrere between folk, traditional country, country-blues, and minimalist rock & roll in the vein of the Velvet Underground.
