One half of The Lost Brother’s releases his debut solo album 22nd September.


McKOWSKI – the alter ego of Mark McCausland, one half of the critically acclaimed Irish duo The Lost Brothers, and previously of the Deltasonic band The Basement – unleashes his solo album: “Notes From The Boneyard”.

McKowski’s debut is a purely instrumental album of atmospheric folk and otherworldly soundscapes to capture your imagination and seep into your soul, with each track drawing the listener deeper and deeper into a fictional world known only as ‘The Boneyard’.

Utilising a unique blend of guitars, strings, analog synths, and electronic toys, Mckowski creates a haunting and evocative journey across its transient 35 minutes.

Recorded mostly by himself in his home studio, the album is also gifted with the talents of some old allies, with guest musicianship from the likes of Steve Wickham (viola), Howe Gelb (guitar), Laura Mcafadden (cello), Dave Murphy (pedal steel), with St Francis Hotel also adding further elements of atmosphere and production.

With one foot rooted in a dark woodland and the other foot stepping into unknown territory, the end result is a cinematic masterclass in instrumental storytelling. Expect the unexpected when you enter The Boneyard.
