*Andy McKee* is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists. His youthful
energy and attention to song structure and melodic content elevates him
above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically
transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of
altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature
two-handed technique.

McKee’s crossover success has helped him to achieve millions upon millions
of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today’s most
unique and influential artists. He has been featured as a cover story in
both Acoustic Guitar Magazine in the U.S. and Acoustic Magazine in the UK,
and is also the figurehead of the unique Guitar Masters tours. McKee’s tour
dates have taken him through Europe, Asia, Australia and North America,
including tours with legendary acts including Prince and Dream Theater.

Live performances of Andy’s have become a point of fascination with his
loyal followers. So, in late 2015, Andy decided it was time to release a
live album. Featuring tracks from his entire catalog, *Live Book* was
recorded live in December 2015 at The Melting Point in Athens, GA, the Red
Clay Music Foundry in Duluth, GA, and Workplay in Birmingham, AL. McKee
went through the recordings from all three shows and selected the finest
takes of each set. Reflecting on the song choices, he looks to provide
current fans the chance to relive their favorite shows, and hopes that he
can showcase the energy he creates for those who haven’t been able to
attend a show and new fans alike.

“I’ve always wanted to do a live album; for quite a few years I’ve felt
it’s something that has been missing from my collection of releases,” says
McKee. “This album will feature some of my YouTube hits like ‘Drifting’ and
‘Rylynn’, some songs from my 2014 EP *Mythmaker*, and a cover of a Michael
Hedges song called ‘Because It’s There’ played on harp guitar that I
haven’t released yet.”

McKee is the first artist to be signed CGP Sounds, the record label founded
by fellow guitarist Tommy Emmanuel.

“I’m honored to be a part of his label. I heard Tommy 15 years ago at a
festival in Kansas and was blown away by his playing and performing, and I
still am,” Mckee stated. “To be the first person on his label is surreal,
and I’m excited and proud to be a part of it.”

Live Book is set to be released digitally in Europe on February 12 and
worldwide (digitally and physically) on April 22. The album, McKee’s first
live record, will be released through CGP Sounds. In support of the new
album, McKee will embark on “*The Next Chapter Tour*” throughout Europe in
February and March, and the United States in April and May.
