Brendan McKinney was born in and raised just outside the city of Philadelphia.  He grew up in a large Irish family immersed in a world of words and music:  “Everybody in my family played at least a little guitar and sang”, reflects McKinney, ” I was the last to pick it up, but I could never manage to put it back down. “After many years as a prominent entertainer in the North Eastern region of the U.S., both as a solo artist and as lead vocalist and guitarist for bands such as: ‘The Missionaries’ (rhythm & blues) and ‘Driving Wheel’ (blues). McKinney is recognized as a talented songwriter and a powerful and exciting stage presence. As a live performer, McKinney constantly reaches for new plateaus; he is arguably most compelling to watch when he cuts loose and improvises.
