Mike McKenna Jr is a Canadian singer-songwriter, originally hailing from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. His minimalist acoustic soundscapes and raw, soulful vocal give his folklore-infused, down-home inspired songs a contemporary touch.
His first full length record 'Pacific Northwest Bound' garnered him positive reviews, radio charting, and festival spots including a release show at Vancouver Island Music Fest, a Main Stage appearance at Montreal Folk Fest sur le Canal, and a Sunday performance at the 25th Anniversary of RBC Ottawa Bluesfest. Spotify Community's own Melody Causton said it best when describing Mike's unique and highly-listenable songwriting style:
“An authentic, golden, raspy voice that sings comfortably over folk-driven rhythmic guitar lines. His personal, nostalgic lyrics are wonderfully descriptive giving his music a relatable and also gorgeously humble tone.”
