Graven and Ben Mullin at the Cove Inn!

 

(Jaybird)… promises to continue Graven’s lyrical flair with songs like “Big Lake, Sky Summer”, “In the Woods of Me” and “Lone”. Here, McKechnie walks the ridges of an alt-country landscape planting seeds of folk-rock along the way. What sprouts up are songs he calls his “thickest”, “crunchiest” and “folk-rocky-est” to date.”
Andre Gagne (Ottawa Life Magazine)

The alt-folk, spacey, backwoods rock rail rider Graven and his guitar guru/voice Venus Ben Mullin are set to stage an interstellar night of sonic delight in the beautiful, field-jewel town of Westport on Friday May 26.

Graven is the alt-country folk-rock mindscape of Matt McKechnie. His new album features percussion from JUNO winner Joel Plaskett’s drummer Dave Marsh.
