Andy McKee is one of the world’s finest solo acoustic guitarists and his crossover success to more than 150 million YouTube viewers underscores his emergence as one of the most important and popular artists to surface in years. To fans of virtuoso musicianship it is Andy’s attention to song structure and melodic content that elevates him above the rest. To fans of popular music Andy entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique.
Andy continues to challenge himself. Following a recent string of Australian shows performing alongside living-legend Prince – yes THAT Prince who had personally requested Andy to join his band for the concerts – and a planned series of new releases on deck, Andy McKee is ready to expand his horizons and experience a reinvention in 2014.
