The 525 Records Podcast #18 - Willy McGee
Willy McGee is a musician from Austin, TX. We talk about his latest albums, most notably his 2018 release You Gonna Eat That? Recorded in Nashville at Bombshelter studios.
As music has become more and more accessible to people, and the ideas by one person can spread to millions within seconds, it has become harder and harder for stubborn critics to pigeonhole an artist within a genre. Austin native Willy McGee might be the toughest task yet when giving his music a listen. The thirty-one-year-old singer/songwriter has a voice reminiscent of some of country’s greatest with his baritone register and raspy tone. However, his production blends the country guitar sounds and blues licks with some acid jazz and funkadelic rhythms to create music that truly stands out in a playlist. A background in theatre and a passion for filming has made him develop a huge self-awareness when it comes to the visual aspect of the music and the vibe he creates when in the studio. All of this makes Willy McGee one of the most out-there characters in the Texas music scene, yet he oozes this air of relatability that is hard to come by. All these questions lead to only one solution, and that is to follow his career and find out the method to his madness as it all unfolds!
