“McGraw expertly navigates the waters of our communal subconscious, showing us the beauty in even our bleakest moments.” – Performing Songwriter
Self-described anti-anti-folk artist Richard McGraw will perform at NYC’s famed American Folk Art Museum (45 W 53rd St, between 5th and 6th Avenues – just down the street from the Museum of Modern Art) next Friday, March 5th. The performance is part of a night to celebrate the work of Nineteenth century maritime painter Thomas Chambers. Read more info about this event HERE.
While McGraw might describe his music in terms that deem him an outsider, his single “Hungry Heart” (MP3) from his latest album Burying The Dead is actually quite accessible amid its dark and gruff overtones. A great melody and an urgent vocal can’t be denied no matter how “anti” McGraw may claim to be.
Following in the footsteps of the poet-songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, and Lou Reed -- McGraw contemplates the trials and tragedies of the human condition with beautiful and poignant honesty. His uncommon vocals tremor and plead heavenward, relaying woeful tales of love and loss, existential terror and a longing for transcendence.
McGraw has now unleashed his third record upon the world. Burying The Dead, a lyrical tour-de-force, covering familiar themes (life, death, religion, love, heartache, God and Godlessness) with a candid freshness.
