RealTracks Artist Bio: Kevin McKendree


Kevin McKendree is well-known in Nashville for his contributions to Delbert McClinton's Grammy-winning albums, for his own Grammy nomination as co-writer of the Lee Roy Parnell song "Mama, Screw Your Wig On Tight," as a music producer and owner of The Rock House studio, and for his Monday night performances with the Mike Henderson Band at the renowned Bluebird Cafe. That, and his thousands of performances and sessions with leading artists like Little Richard, Lee Roy Parnell, Seven Mary Three, Buddy Guy, John Oates, Anson Funderburgh, Vince Gill, Brian Setzer, Wynnona, Kix Brooks, Tom Dowd, Donald "Duck" Dunn, Earl King, Tinsley Ellis, Bonnie Bramlett, Randy Houser, Johnny Sandlin, Don Was, Kentucky Headhunters, David Hood, Johnny Adams, Jim James, Pam Tillis, Zigaboo Modeliste, Larry Graham, Hal Ketchum, T. Graham Brown, George Thorogood, Etta James, and many more.

Self-taught on both guitar and piano, Kevin kept busy backing touring blues acts that came through his hometown of Washington, D.C. This led to an offer of a European tour with local blues legend Tom Principato. Returning from the road after three-and-a-half years, Kevin contacted Allman Brothers keyboardist Chuck Leavell about opportunities in Nashville. The result was a four year stint with Lee Roy Parnell and his Grammy nomination for "Mama, Screw Your Wig On Tight." This was followed by nearly fifteen years as band leader for Delbert McClinton. Since Kevin stopped playing full-time with Delbert McClinton he has recorded and toured with the Brian Setzer Orchestra and John Oates and continues to focus on songwriting and studio projects at The Rock House.
