B.R. Mackie

Australian-born, Brooklyn-based songwriter Ben R. Mackie “mixes folk and country inspired sounds with a distinctively Melbournian soul” (Beat Magazine) to create a 70’s-mid-fi-pop filtered amalgamation of modern Americana-psychedelia.

Over the past few years Mackie has taken home some of Australia’s finest music prizes; including the country’s largest alternative radio station Triple J’sUnearthed competition with the group The Polites.

Since relocating to New York CIty in 2014, Mackie has brought his one-man show to many of the cities top venues; with showcases at Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall and the 2015 CMJ Music Marathon just a few of the highlights.

B.R.Mackie recently headed to Boston to record an EP with David Minehan of The Replacements. The record, called 'Negativity Spiral', is slated for release on March 16th 2017.
