PLEASE NOTE: IM CURRENTLY ON TOUR SO MY TURNAROUND HAS BEEN CHANGED FROM 4 DAYS TO 2 WEEKS.

I offer professional pedal steel, banjo, guitar, dobro, bass, and lap steel overdubs for your song of any genre recorded with expert attention to your arrangement and production. As a session player, I have recorded parts for multi-platinum and grammy nominated songwriters, producers and arrangers. I thoroughly dig playing typical styles and can do so with a deft hand, and I love developing lustrous melodies with subtleties and nuance, catchy hooks, or lush beds of harmony for jazz, country, americana, indie rock, folk, rap, noise, pop and more. If you are looking for someone to experiment with new sounds, check out my reel! I love turning these instruments upside down.

I have worked on songs produced or written by:
Thomas Bartlett (Taylor Swift, Norah Jones, Henry Jamison, Sufjan Stevens, Florence & the Machine)
Alasdair Roberts (David Byrne, Bonnie Prince Billie, Songs: Ohia)
Daniel Majic (Flo Rida, One Republic, Kevin Gates)
Jon Gilbert (Mt. Joy, The Kills, Pete Yorn, OFF!, Mercury Slim)

"McKay possesses in spades all my favorite qualities in a musician and collaborator: technical prowess, impeccable instincts, a willingness to approach arrangements from various angles, a generous spirit... His playing is expressive yet full of nuance and restraint; he gave such evocative and ethereal new layers to my music." -(B. Kupstas Field Guides)
