Biography

K.C. McKanzie does her very own brand of Americana and Folk. A bittersweet Old-Time-flavour combines with a contemporary touch of rootsy rhythms.
On her 4th album "DryLand" K.C. McKanzie (voc, guit, banjo) and her partner in crime Budi (bs, banjo, dr, p) present a multitude of melodies, supplemented now and then with cello or piano. The simple acoustic instrumentation gives an unpretentious but very intense sound.
K.C. McKanzie's soft voice leads wistful and clear through the haunting but passionate lyrics. Love and despair, longing and lust are put expressively into powerful symbols by using a dry, simple writing. Subtle arrangements with plenty of detail create a timeless yet intimate mood.
Following the release of her fourth album it is clear that her brand of euro-americana folk will delight audiences who appreciate songwriting at its most intimate. Her work is at once dense and accessible, complex and stripped bare, and reflects the paradox of this mysterious yet communicative young singer from Berlin who has a voice beyond her years.
