M’Gilvry Allen’s music is as unusual as his name: a kaleidoscope of familiar sounds, from crisp flourishes of ancient fiddle, to driving beats and raw blues guitar. With a distinctive style dubbed “post apocalyptic railroad blues” or “psychedelic gospel folk,” M’Gilvry loops instruments, beatboxing and vocals, lacing thoughtful lyrics into sultry harmonies. His improvisational live performances have a healing playfulness and a ritual tech, bursting with soul and asking the eternal questions.
