When Arlo takes the stage, prepare to feel every heart in the room begin to crumble under the weight of honesty and emotion in McKinley’s lyrics. He's been on the mission of writing truthful and honest songs since his self titled release Arlo McKinley & The Lonesome Sound (2014).
Arlo's songwriting crosses genres of country-folk/rock with gobs of soul and deep and profound introspection. Being billed alongside musicians such as Tyler Childers, John Moreland, Jason Isbell, Justin Townes Earle and many others have helped Arlo McKinley get his name outside his hometown of Cincinnati and has gained him fans across the US & Europe.
Arlo’s sophomore album Die Midwestern Vol. 1 comes out in early 2019, and is sure to continue cementing him as a one of the important voices in American music that speak to love, struggle, loss & redemption.
