Andy McKee is one of the world’s finest acoustic guitar soloists. Having shot to worldwide prominence with his technically astounding Drifting, he has since received over 200,000,000 (yes, 200 million) plays on YouTube alone. At one point he held the 1, 2 and 3 positions for their Top-Rated Videos of All Time. However McKee’s online success is no gimmick; as a live musician he performs over 200 shows a year worldwide, has independently released five studio albums, was awarded the Acoustic Guitar Magazine worldwide silver medal award for fingerstyle.
McKee’s live shows are a true testament to his art of stringsmanship and engaging repartee, appealing both to the every day music fan and guitar aficionados alike. His deft talents give his music life through altered tunings, syncopated rhythm and guitar taps. Andy’s textural use of polyphonic tones and his unique multi-layering approach means whilst he alone plucks, strums, taps the strings and body, he creates the illusion of a full band accompaniment.
