Best known for his work as the frontman of SNOWMAN, Joe Mckee grew up in The Darling Hills, 35 km's south of Perth - a drive which is mostly highway, fairly droll until you start actually ascending the hills themselves - at which point great dips and troughs reveal themselves, taking on a whole strange, arid quality. 4 years under the spell of London, he returned to them and released 'Burning Boy', his debut album. Joe's previous outfit, Snowman released two albums out of Perth - 2006's self titled effort and 2009's violent masterpiece 'The Horse, The Rat & The Swan'. Praise, wide ranging and effusive, came from all corners of the globe, though the London based band parted after their final album, 'Absence'. After Snowman departed, two of the band members moved to Iceland child in tow, another firmly folded into the arms of Cambridge. Joe, always spinning in his own orbit, landed back in Perth with a collection of songs inspired by this process, by home, by London and by the catharsis involved in returning to a place you've tried so long to forget. Recorded with long-time collaborator Dave Parkin, these 10 tracks move together as an exhilarating whole, acting as a timely reminder of McKee's reputation as one of Australia's finest left field composers. 'Burning Boy' adds a few new strings to the bow, and once you become immersed in its gorgeous swells and poignant imagery it becomes immediately obvious that in all the coming, going, leaving and returning; that Joe Mckee has, at least for now, found a melodic home.
