Mike McKenna Jr is a Montreal based singer-songwriter, originally hailing from the remote, musical island of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
His minimalist acoustic soundscapes and raw, soulful vocal gives his folklore-infused, down-home inspired songs a contemporary touch.
Spotify Community's own Melody Causton said it best when describing Mike's unique and highly-listenable songwriting style; “An authentic, golden, raspy voice that sings comfortably over folk-driven rhythmic guitar lines. His personal, nostalgic lyrics are wonderfully descriptive giving his music a relatable and also gorgeously humble tone.”
Spring 2020 will see the anticipated release his second full-length album, produced by 23-year-old Berklee graduate Quinn Bachand (Rosier, Kittle & Co, Brishen) and featuring a familiar lineup of musicians along with several new names. Colin Savoie-Levac (Rosier, the Duhks) is back on electric and bass guitar, as well as Béatrix Mêthé (Rosier) on backup vocals, with the addition of 19-year-old Benjamin Vallee (Bule) on pedalsteel, and Oli Bernatchez (Rosier) on drums. With a young band, a rising-star producer, and an all round bigger studio sound, Mike's newest project is set to release on April 17th, followed by a string of album release shows across Europe and North America.
