"Band of the Week"

"Mecaskey’s first solo album, Righteous Kind, is a carefully crafted collection of six tunes that features a range of instrumentation, including violin, trombone, saxophone and flute. Lover Less Wild is another solid effort from one of the city's better sing-songwriters.” - Cleveland Scene

Bio

Morgan Mecaskey is an American musician, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist living in Cleveland, Ohio. The former front of acclaimed local indie/folk band Tinamou, Mecaskey made her solo debut in 2012 with the EP, "Righteous Kind". "Righteous Kind" is a heart and head experience for the listener: earnest lyrics delve into metaphysical questions while vivid soundscapes, whimsical motifs, and fat beats build the bold and beguiling album.

 Mecaskey has been likened to artist Jeff Buckley in the way she composes and coveys her music. An apt comparison, Mecaskey's forceful, assured presence, deliberate arrangements, and confident handling of the guitar create an unorthodox, ethereal, visceral musical experience. 

"Lover Less Wild", Mecaskey's most recent recording, commences with the shimmering, passionate anthem "White Horse", wherein Mecaskey croons, "Sometimes, I don't feel like who I really am" over and over. It’s a solid anthem that sets the tone for the EP. Woozy horns drive the mellow, R&B-inspired “Fighting Extinction, ” and the title track is a jazzy number that allows Mecaskey to show off her terrific voice. The Joni Mitchell-like ballad “Crushed” has a genuine tenderness to it, making it the perfect album closer.

 Both "Lover Less Wild" and "Righteous Kind" were recorded and engineered by Dave Douglas at Danger House (Cleveland, OH). "Lover Less Wild" was mastered by Adam Boose at Cauliflower Audio and "Righteous Kind" by Doc Harrill at Liquid Synergy Studios.
