McKenna Bray is an Americana singer-songwriter born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. She has a sweet, soulful voice reminiscent of Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris.
Her full length album released under Madjack Records, “Once In A Blue Moon,” was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis, TN. Produced by Susan Marshall (Lucinda Williams, Lenny Kravitz, Primal Scream), engineered by Jeff Powell (Afghan Whigs, St. Paul & The Broken Bones) and mixed by Grammy Award winning engineer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price).
Already creating a local following, McKenna Bray’s music video for her single “The Way I Loved You” premiered on Ditty TV’s “The Curve.” Even the Commercial Appeal states, “McKenna Bray has become one of the bright new stars on the local music scene over the past year.” Alex Greene from the Memphis Flyer states “There are many Americana singers in Tennessee. It almost seems unfair to put an artist in a box… In the case of McKenna Bray, it almost does her a disservice… There are so many surprises in the songwriting, it defies any label that might suggest the Carter Family or simple folk strumming.” Lastly, The Tour Collierville Magazine, shares “With a sound somewhere in between Brandi Carlile and Kacey Musgraves, her lyrics and voice are raw and straight from the soul.”
