A confident, heart pounding sound that leaves you wanting more.
I first heard the McKrells at the Town Crier in Pawling, NY. And I have been hooked ever since. Better Days is what got me hooked. The rich and emotional sound of Kevin McKrell's voice could bring peace to the world. I live on the west coast now so I don't get the chance to see them live anymore. But the sound of the McKrells lives on very strongly on the shores of the San Francisco Bay. Keep up the great sound. You've got a fan for life.
