I have been playing guitar for over 25 years all over the world live and as a session musician. I knew from a very early age that I wanted to be a professional musician. My first guitar actually belonged to my mother, it was awful, the strings were so high off the fret board you could’ve grated your parmesan off them! It did give me a kick-start though and I was soon off writing songs and performing at local music venues.
I’ve toured the globe in bands opening up for arena acts such as Toto, Coldplay and Muse. I have recently played many folk festivals including Folk n Ale and Beautiful days under my own name, Alexander McKay with my own finger picked compositions.
I continue to work as a singer songwriter, producing and performing live and also have my own production company, Magna Music Productions, composing bespoke music for advertising agencies, TV and Film.
I am also endorsed by Log-Jam stomp pedals.
