Jon Mckiel plays vital guitar rock and bent-string lullabies, equal parts blister-forming-grit and punch-drunk-wistfulness, a system of love, solo, and with comrades-in-peace Jay Crocker (of Joyfultalk/No More Shapes), Sean Dicey (Joyfultalk), and Aaron Mangle (of Cousins). Memorial Ten Count is his 4th album and You’ve Changed Records debut.
