LISTEN TO BRIAN MCGRATH:
"Back of The Yards"
Chicago has long been blue collar - a place where people work much too hard to worry about irony, a place where the weather equalizes all, a city where people's hands bleed with a day's work. This is Brian McGrath's home.
A folk singer/songwriter, McGrath delivers with pained passion an honest portrayal of the everyday struggles of regular folks. There are no frills here, only the directness and sincerity of a shared experience expressed through vocals that are powerful yet tender, pained yet hopeful. Musically, McGrath's sound is a unique mix of American folk with Irish folk and rock, a perfect backdrop for his vocals and lyrics. Played live, the songs ignite in a fury of passionate urgency that remains long after the embers have faded and the lights go out.
Brian McGrath is currently playing shows in and around Chicago in support of his debut EP, titled "Back of the Yards" The EP can be downloaded at brianmcgrath.bandcamp.com with a no minimum, name-your-price option.
