Brushy One String (febrero, 2016)

Andrew Chin, hijo de Freddie McKay, se crió en Ocho Ríos, Jamaica


Lo descubrí anoche. Un breve fragmento de la biografía del guitarrista

On his very first studio album, Destiny (release: April 30, 2013), the veteran musician evokes the sweetness of soul singers like Percy Sledge and Louis Armstrong, the grit and wit of Delta bluesmen, all woven together with a Jamaican pulse and ingenuity that shows that the island’s music is about far more than reggae. Heartfelt blues combine with dancehall-style vocals on “Grey in my Blue,” while uplifting, catchy ballads like “Life is for Every Man” channel a soulful intensity and profound faith.
