Andy Mckee :: Joyland

by

Naar Andy McKee uit Topeka, Kansas werd zo’n 80 miljoen keer gekeken op YouTube. Dat is niet voor niks. Hij is namelijk een ware tovenaar op de akoestische gitaar. Zijn nieuwe CD Joyland is een ultieme proeve van bekwaamheid. Zijn muziek neigt naar new age, maar hij heeft ook het lef om af en toe goed los te gaan en dan roept hij herinneringen op aan die andere gitaarreus Leo Kottke. Wie in vier minuten overtuigd wil raken van McKee’s kracht hoeft alleen maar naar het titelnummer te luisteren.
 
Andy McKee is considered one of the world’s finest acoustic guitar soloists. His dedicated online community has raised his YouTube video views in excess of 78 million plays and at one point he held the #1, #2 and #3 positions for Top-Rated Videos of All Time on YouTube. McKee’s online media success has impacted both album and ticket sales allowing him to tour internationally with over 200 live shows a year.
Hailing from Topeka Kansas, the self-taught McKee, first garnered international attention as one of the top finalists at the prestigious National Finger Style Guitar Championships in Windfield, Kansas.  Since 2001, McKee has released five albums independently selling upwards of 40,000.   Andy also had the honor of playing guitar on Josh Groban’s Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum Christmas album, NOEL.  
McKee’s live shows are a true testament to his art of stringsmanship and engaging repartee.  He manages to capture both the every day music fan and guitar aficionados with his expertise and down to earth wit and humor.  Whether it be explaining how his harp guitar tunes or why his frets are backward, Andy maintains his love for both fan and guitar player.
