Pro Pedal Steel, Banjo, Guitar, Bass for $75

I offer professional pedal steel, banjo, guitar, and bass overdubs for your song of any genre recorded with expert attention to your arrangement and production. 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. As a session player, I have recorded parts for multi-platinum and grammy nominated songwriters, producers and arrangers.

I have worked on songs produced by:
Thomas Bartlett (Norah Jones, Henry Jamison, Sufjan Stevens, Florence & the Machine)
Jon Gilbert (Mt. Joy, The Kills, Pete Yorn, OFF!, Mercury Slim)
Peter Broderick (arr. for Blitzen Trapper, She&Him, Sharon Van Etten, Gill Landry)

"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)
