ANDY MCKEE

supported by Trevor Gordon Hall

Andy McKee is among the world's finest acoustic guitarists, and his crossover success to over 150 million YouTube viewers underscores his emergence as one of today's most unique and influential artists. 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.

He's been featured as a cover story in both Acoustic Guitar Magazine in the U.S. and Acoustic Magazine in the UK, and is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters tours which have traveled the world over the past three years.

With his influence continuing to grow, in 2012 Andy was personally asked by living-legend Prince to join his band for a series of shows in Australia. Andy now looks to challenge himself even further in 2014 and beyond with more surprise collaborations, diverse music releases, development of new instrument products (including Ernie Ball's Aluminum Bronze strings) and ceaseless international touring including new markets such as India, Argentina, Russia, the Middle East and Greece.

Rated as one of the top 30 guitarists in the world under 30 years of age by Acoustic Guitar magazine, Trevor Gordon Hall's compositions range in style from edgy driving rhythms to soft melodic phrases.
