Bill MacKay releases his third, and arguably deepest record, entitled Esker. A record that contains a combination of percussion, guitars, piano and glass slide all performed by himself. Esker is a well known and genial presence on the Chicago music scene and here creates warm folk rock that also taps into psych and experimental rock.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 30th December 2017
Bill MacKay is a jazz guitarist out of Chicago who presents his first solo outing after work with Ryley Walker on the previous SpiderBeetleBee. The music here is sophisticated but easy to listen to, even soothing. He is supremely skilled as a musician and obviously put his heart into the the recording of this album. I've enjoyed listening to it over and over, and hearing this has made me want to look more into previous releases. The LP cover speaks to the music perfectly. Glimmering. Melodic. Mysterious.
