Arlo McKinley & The Lonesome Sound
Tim Carr had been kicking around the Cincinnati music scene for a while, playing in Punk bands and then teaming with celebrated local singer/ songwriter Jeremy Pinnell to form the folksier Great Depression. But, despite encouragement from his peers who knew better, he lacked the confidence in his writing to move to the front of the stage. As a result, his alter ego, Arlo McKinley, was born, and one of the city’s best Folk/Americana songwriters emerged from the transformation. With his ace band The Lonesome Sound, McKinley recorded and released a remarkable self-titled album in 2014, cementing the arrival of a major talent in Cincinnati’s rich Roots music scene.
