Pat McKillen in Concert
February 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Back for one night only! Barrington’s wildly popular singer-songwriter Pat McKillen returns to the White House, where he’ll showcase his distinct blend of passion-infused folk and rock.McKillen will play selections from songs spanning a ten-year career performing original music, including new music in anticipation of his 2020 album release. A wonderful Valentine’s Day date night!
A prolific songwriter, McKillen finds joy in every part of the creative process. As the sole producer of his three LPs (Stagefright , The Red Headed Enemy , Blood & Bones ) and EP Love Without Me , every song represents a complete cycle of the creative process. Dedicated to creating a sound that reflects the organic nature of his songwriting, McKillen brings life to songs recorded mostly in his Chicago apartment. The result is an evolving sound that couples a powerful and passionate voice with a fusion of musical genres including folk, pop, and rock.
The process of recording, mixing, producing, and even creating the artwork for his musical endeavors is a labor of love. He is always looking for new ways to bring his world to words and his soul to sounds.
McKillen continues to adapt to an ever-changing music scene and always seeks to find ways to enhance the solo singer-songwriter experience. An experienced looper, he brings the layering techniques of the studio into the live setting for a performance that resonates with a wide range of ages and audiences. McKillen’s 2016 release “Blood & Bones” is his 3rd full-length album that pays homage to the traditional singer-songwriter sounds of his earlier work while incorporating some of the more modern percussive elements from his Love Without Me EP . Although the album was released in 2016, McKillen had played many of the tracks live for several years. This results in a well-polished set of tracks and his strongest release yet, coupling pensive and thoughtful lyrics with the musical maturity of an artist finding his voice.
