Music by Mckenzie

Mckenzie is the essence of Americana, a little bit of country, a little bit of folk and a whole lot of rock and roll.  Her musical influences range from Tanya Tucker, The Chicks, Bonnie Raitt, Alanis Morrissette and bands like, Heart, Incubus and Journey.  Mckenzie grew up singing in the church choir and later in the High School choir.

Her first instrument was the flute and she later picked up guitar at the urging of her Dad who was her musical mentor. Mckenzie started out in a rock and roll band called “Wings of Fire”, then with a duet called “Hourglass” which included a female fiddle player and lots of country music.

She continued adding her style of singing to classic bands like “Four of Kind Band” and recently, a Dallas based band “The Lake Rats”.  With her versatile musical style Mckenzie is able to please the most diverse audiences and is focusing on her solo performances which include a mixture of cover songs  and her originals.
