The past is a foreign country

album artwork for A. David MacKinnon

A. David MacKinnon is a Toronto based songwriter, producer and recording engineer. From the late 90’s til the late 00’s he was one half of the band FemBots.

The songs on the record might best be described as the imaginary soundtrack to a film that doesn’t exist. The record draws inspiration from the sounds of mid-50’s Jazz (Dave Brubeck, Thelonious Monk, Gil Evans), 70’s action films (French Connection, The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3), the songs of Hoagy Carmichael and early Soul and Gospel music.
