ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
McKillen follows up his debut album "Stagefright" with a far more developed sound and a new look at songwriting. "The Red Headed Enemy" is a study of a twenty-something trying not to get lost in the world, looked at through a folk-rock lens. And we think you'll like what you see.

A powerful voice commands this 14-track album, from start to finish. McKillen recorded and produced the album himself, experimenting with new percussive techniques and bringing in a fiddler (Andy Ohlrich) to play on four of the tracks. The concepts behind these songs are not necessarily new, but they are delivered in such a way that McKillen will make you feel the pain he felt, make you long for the love he's lost, make you look forward and backward not knowing which way to turn and leave you turning your head with him.

The album opens with "The Autumn Breeze." From the first tick-tock of the grandfather clock and tape recorder voice of his great-grandfather, the album grabs you and holds you for the next 63 minutes.

"Put your hands where I can see...in my footsteps, follow me." Take a step, listen to the first track, and find yourself walking alongside McKillen for the next 14 songs.
