Wyn Doran is the solo project of Amy Wynne Doran, a lead singer/songwriter of New England Music Award nominees Strangers by Accident.
Wyn was classically trained in voice from a young age and toured and competed internationally with choirs from 2003-2006, singing in the Sydney Opera House in Australia, Carnegie Hall in New York, as well as competing in England, Italy, Austria, and more.
In 2018 Wyn was selected as one of thirteen songwriters internationally to work with Ben Folds at a songwriting retreat in Ojai, California. She continued expanding her songwriting skills taking a course by Katie Toupin (formerly of the alt-country band Houndmouth) in preparation for her first solo record set to release later in 2019. Her soul-tinged songs dig into her personal stories of living with chronic illness, with influences stemming from Adele, Nancy Sinatra, and Amy Winehouse.
In March, Wyn released 'Places Unknown,' the first single off her upcoming album, with acclaim from press in Portugal, Germany, and the US.
A prolific songwriter, McKillen finds joy in every part of the creative process. As the sole producer of his three LPs (Stagefright , The Red Headed Enemy , Blood & Bones ) and EP Love Without Me , every song represents a complete cycle of the creative process. Dedicated to creating a sound that reflects the organic nature of his songwriting, McKillen brings life to songs recorded mostly in his Chicago apartment. The result is an evolving sound that couples a powerful and passionate voice with a fusion of musical genres including folk, pop, and rock.
The process of recording, mixing, producing, and even creating the artwork for his musical endeavors is a labor of love. He is always looking for new ways to bring his world to words and his soul to sounds.
McKillen continues to adapt to an ever-changing music scene and always seeks to find ways to enhance the solo singer-songwriter experience. An experienced looper, he brings the layering techniques of the studio into the live setting for a performance that resonates with a wide range of ages and audiences.
