About Andy McKee
Andy McKee is one of the world's finest solo acoustic guitarists. His crossover success, reaching 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 McKee's attention to song structure and melodic content that elevates him above the rest. To fans of popular music, McKee entertains both the eye and the ear as he transforms the steel string guitar into full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits, and his signature two-handed technique. McKee was the cover story of both the January 2011 issue of Acoustic Guitar and the June 2011 Acoustic Magazine. His latest release is the CD/DVD package Joyland. www.AndyMcKee.com
