“My sound is a resurrection of traditional and ’60s revivalist folk music,” says MacDonald (CFA’10). “People tell me what I’m doing is different, but I think they just aren’t familiar with my sources.”
Beyond his musical influences, the visual arts major finds inspiration in archaic language and imagery or sometimes a single phrase comes to mind. “Art has been with me forever,” he says, “and it was the most practical career pathway for me.”
With an East Coast tour and shows at BU Central, the Cantab Lounge, and T. T. the Bear’s Place already under his belt, MacDonald plans to give music “one big try” after graduation. “If nothing happens,” he says, “I’ll still keep going with it, but I will have to get a real job.”
Stay tuned every Thursday for the BU Today Sessions, shot on location at 808 Commonwealth Ave. and featuring performances by musicians, bands, and songwriters from the BU community.
