Kevin McClung is a songwriter, singer, and musician, based in Franklin, Tennessee. He grew up in northern Virginia but spent much of his childhood on his father’s family farm in West Virginia. At the age of fifteen, he taught himself to play the banjo. Soon thereafter, he picked up the guitar. In his late teens, he started writing songs and has been refining his craft ever since. His songs draw from eclectic musical influences of his younger days such as Flatt & Scruggs, Marty Robbins, Jim Croce, James Taylor, Nancy Griffith, Tom Petty, and Neil Young.
Though originally from the Washington, D.C. area, he made the move to Music City to pursue a desire to make a living in the music industry. In the late 90s Kevin formed the band Mountain William that played an interesting blend of Bluegrass, Country, Folk, and Americana. They played mostly in local clubs and venues in the southeastern US.
Since the release of his debut solo album Minor Indiscretions in 2003, Kevin has shifted more of his professional focus to songwriting. His songs have been recorded by bluegrass and crossover acts such as Sierra Hull, Justin Moses, and Blue Moon Rising.
Kevin’s latest project, Room of Curiosities, is a compilation of original tunes inspired by his life and musical influences over the years. The 14-track, Nashville-produced album is a powerful marriage of lyric and music, delving into deep spiritual subject matter rarely portrayed in today’s popular art & culture.
Kevin lives in Franklin with his wife, Holly, and their four children.
