Member Spotlight

Known for his powerful lyricism and intricate musicianship, Canadian singer-songwriter Mike McKenna Jr.'s latest record At The Edge of the World (April 2020) was met by incredible support, with features in Spotify Editorial playlists including Renegade Folk and Contemporary Folk, on Mahogany’s YouTube playlist, in The Bluegrass Situation, Americana UK, Canadian Beats, Roots Music Canada, The East and more. Produced by 23-year-old Berklee graduate, Victoria BC’s Quinn Bachand (Rosier, Kittel & Co, Brishen) the album delivers a wider, fuller sound than his previous stripped-down records, lead by Mike’s incredibly raw, soulful vocals and surrounded by a beautiful mix of electric and pedal-steel guitar, electric bass, vocal harmonies, strings, piano and drums. It also passed through the talented hands of two of Canada's top analog specialists; mixing engineer Jon Anderson (Andy Shauf, Rosier, Foxwarren) and Grammy-nominated mastering engineer, Juno/Polaris winner Philip Shaw Bova (Father John Misty, Feist, Bahamas).
