A quick listen to Austin singer-songwriter (and filmmaker) Willy McGee gives you two immediate impressions: light-hearted lyrics; serious music. McGee put out his self-recorded debut a dozen years ago (when he was still in high school) and through the films and records between then and now, he’s been building up his skills on vocals, piano, guitar and more.
Last Friday Willy McGee released a baker’s dozen of tunes in form of his brand new LP You Gonna Eat That? The record finds roots in Texas electric blues but bounces between songs that sound like Quicksilver Messenger Service, Aaron Neville, and even Christopher Cross. The new McGee is available online and on vinyl and you can dig into You Gonna Eat That with the album’s midway point (offering sage advice for the smartphone generation), “Double Text”!
