Steven Dayvid McKellar
PUT THIS IN YOUR DEN for an album that deftly merges neo soul singing over IDM beats, and an indie rock sensibility. While proving himself as the front man of an established band, this is truly stunning work from an artist on the rise.

Former Civil Twilight front man, Steven Dayvid McKellar returns with NAMA, the follow up to his 2020 debut solo album ETHIO. Deftly self-produced, the record is a musical psychoanalysis of McKellar’s own id, where the primitive utterances of the subconscious are quite literally coaxed and arranged into fully realized expressions of song.
Throughout the album, from the minimal electronic heartbreak of lead off track “One & Zero” to the haunted claustrophobia of second single “Stop Running” and the fractured beauty of album closer “Edge Of The Garden” NAMA somehow balances introspection with an outward push into the unknown.
