Morgan McDonald

Back to the Wilderness (indie)

Releasing his debut EP Back to the Wilderness, Morgan McDonald’s country-folk tracks---sprinkled with a healthy dose of lap steel---are impressive. Although at times he seems to use those country crutches as filler instead of as additions to the songs, with the help of producer Paul Aucoin and paired with an obvious knack for storytelling (“Blood Will Rust”) and strong melodies, for a debut EP, it sure as hell sounds good. Real good. Keep your eyes (and ears) peeled for this fella, folks. Is he the next big thing? Maybe not yet. But give it some time, ’cause he’s certainly doing something right.
