Bill Mackay

In and out of focus in a hallucinogenic haze, Bill’s conversations with himself follow a travel-worn map copied over and over again. The picker journeys sonically from familiar to unknown places, a style suspended between the traditional and the avant-garde, expansive and flowing like boiled-over magma.

We’re proud to welcome a new guest mix contributor into our fold – Chicago guitarist-composer-improviser and Drag City artist Bill MacKay! Bill’s extensive catalog of work features both solo releases and collaborations with the likes of Matt Lux (Isotope 217) and Ryley Walker.
