Kinjac is the pseudonym of musician/producer Michael Greer O’Shea. A true solo artist, he writes, plays, records, mixes, and masters every sound on every track and even directs his own music videos.
Born and raised in Asheville, NC, the son of a new age minister and a hippie musician, Kinjac’s eclectic, genre-bending style is perhaps best described as “Southern Gothic Electronic.” His lyrics explore dark themes of dystopian politics, ghostly hauntings, existential dread, heartbreak, betrayal, loss, and death.
In addition to his five solo albums and various singles, Kinjac has production credits on releases by C.J. Boyd (Joyful Noise Records) and Ali Baba's Tahini (an Umphrey's McGee side-project), and every release on the Seven Moths record label he founded. Kinjac has released official remixes of tracks by River Whyless, Thavius Beck, Eprhyme, Carolinabound, and Toaster Bath. His latest release “Tired of You / Arrivals” features his banjo-playing folk singer/songwriter sister Kathryn O'Shea on vocals. After spending the last two years living in Atlanta and Los Angeles, he recently moved back to his hometown of Asheville, NC to build a permanent studio.
