Arlo McKinley has been making a name for himself around the country, humbly sharing stages with kindred musical spirits John Moreland, Jason Isbell, Justin Townes Earle, and contemporary rising singer/songwriters Ian Noe and Colter Wall, eventually attracting the attention of Oh Boy Records (John Prine’s Label), who signed him in March 2020.
His music is deeply rooted in street soul, country, punk, and gospel and draws on the raw honesty of personal stories, set against the backdrop of his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Filled with a weight, honesty and gritty-hope from rustbelt city life, McKinley rolled downriver to Memphis to Sun Studio where Grammy Award-winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Prine) gathered a working man’s all-star band to record his Oh Boy Records debut, “Die Midwestern” that will be released soon.
