A. David MacKinnon (FemBots) CD release

Date: April 8, 2012
Location: The Garrison

A. David Mackinnon is a Toronto based songwriter, producer and recording engineer. From the late 90s till the late 00s he was one half of the band FemBots. In the years since the last Fembots record David retired from live performance, put the guitars away and abandoned singing to focus on instrumental, piano based music. MacKinnon’s first solo record The Past is A Foreign Country might best be described as the imaginary soundtrack to a film that doesn’t exist. Backed by some of the best support players in the country, MacKinnon creates a sound that draws on 50’s jazz, 70’s action film soundtracks, soul and gospel music. The Past is a Foreign Country will be launched April 8th in Toronto with a concert as part of the Crosswires music series at the Garrison. The record is available for immediate download from iTunes, Zunior, Bandcamp, & CD Baby. It can be previewed at http://adavidmackinnon.bandcamp.com/
