Evenings on Airstream Row: Colton McKenna
Friday, June 11, 2021 | 6 p.m. at Airstream Row
One of the most groundbreaking musicians and songwriters in the city of St. Augustine, Colton McKenna, will perform during an Evenings on Airstream Row event Friday, June 11, 2021.
McKenna blends folk and reggae genres with heart-tugging lyrics to produce a sound that is specifically unique to him.
A St. Augustine native, McKenna grew up in the city listening to various local performers and studying music throughout his high school years. He brings an incredibly stripped-down performance that strikes a chord with the humanity within.
McKenna is not only thought-provokingly lyrical, he aims to inspire audiences to strive toward action and change for the betterment of themselves and those around them.
In 2020, McKenna recorded and self-produced his debut album, Simple Seeds. Heavily percussive and bass driven, McKenna derives a lot of his sound from both the masters of reggae, including Bob and Damien Marley, and also from the intellectual and heartfelt songwriters of the present day such as Iron and Wine and Gregory Alan Isakov. These vastly different influences have given Colton a sound of his own.
