Deeply rooted in street soul, country, punk, and gospel, with lyrics stark and arresting in their honesty, Die Midwestern sees 40-year-old Arlo McKinley poised for success, after he almost gave up on music altogether before he caught the attention of John Prine. Produced by Grammy award-winning Matt Ross-Spang, the debut record was crafted downriver, in Memphis’ legendary Sam Phillips Recording Service. There, McKinley recorded ten remarkable songs - some dating back fifteen years - all penned with a weight, honesty and gritty-hope that comes from living in the rustbelt city of Cincinnati, where his songs were born.
