Bonus MP3: Keegan McInroe -- "The Yank"

Keegan McInroe is the leader of local southern rock outfit Catfish Whiskey. But he's also a budding solo artist: McInroe's debut solo effort, Mozelle, hits the streets this week. Here's a quick preview of said album in the form of "The Yank."

Keegan McInroe-- "The Yank"

Very Dylanesque if you ask me; and frankly, I dig this quite a bit more than what I've heard from Catfish Whiskey. Seems that the acoustic country blues vibe suits McInroe's world weary voice better than Whiskey's extended, southern boogie jams. Whatever the format, solo or group, McInroe's a local songwriter worth some recognition.

The CD release party for Mozelle will come on Thursday, March 26, at The Green Elephant. Special guest Tina Gola will accompany McInroe on violin, adding some sweetness to his acerbic narratives.
