“Old Guitar” is a love song about my guitar and dedicated to the artists who bring hope to others through creativity. The track was mixed by Grammy winner Marc Urselli (U2, Foo Fighters, Nick Cave) after I won a contest he ran to help artists effected by Covid 19. Thanks Marc!
Bryan McPherson, Dead Ven, Nate Allen, Slow Motion Commotion @ Records With Merritt
Sunday (12/6) Bryan McPherson will be in Kansas City and he’s super rad. His fiery acoustic tunes have taken him around the world, including long runs with The Dropkick Murphys. His new album, Wedgewood, was inspired in party by Occupy and got him banned from Disney. He’s just the right kind of nice guy rabble–rouser. The show will be at Records With Merritt, which is an amazing record store and one of the best places to see all-ages music in Kansas City. I’ll be playing, along with other locals Dead Ven (2 piece version) and Slow Motion Commotion. More info about all the bands are below. Bryan McPherson is originally from Boston but we met years ago on the West Coast. His humble, passionate honest songwriting is contagious and I’m excited he’s coming back to Kansas City. Wedgewood by Bryan McPherson Dead Ven plays street folk and just released a super limited edition 7″ on Money Wolf Music for Midwest Musicians Foundation Apocalypse Meow, is working on a cassette for Merica Records as well as a secret track for an upcoming tribute/benefit album.

Bryan McPherson’s songs are full of urgency. His Boston charm woos while his voice punches neatly woven words into existence. He sings with eyes wide open to the world around him and is a first class singer-songwriter. I met Bryan McPherson at Campfire Fest, just after he moved to California. The first time I got to play at 924 Gilman in Berkley, Bryan was there rocking the house as well. We’ve connected tours in Ohio and he recently came through KC. His straight from the heart, punk influenced folk is poised to take on the world. Bryan is currently on tour opening for The Dropkick Murphys. I recommend you swing out early to one of the shows and get a great spot right up front. Bryan’s song “Upon An Open Road” is on our kickstarter mixtape.
