Joey McCarran

Joey Mc|Ca

A New Hampshire native, Joey McCarran has been playing many instruments for the better part of almost 20 years. He has had a guitar in his hands for the past 15.

During this time he has played in many projects, but is currently playing lead guitar through a Skyraider SR-15 for Boston-based TJ Courtney (www.tjcourtney.com). They’ve recently played legendary venues such as The Pearl Street Ballroom and the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA and are set to play the Middle East in Cambridge, MA as well the Delancey in NYC. They are currently gearing up for a showcase at SXSW 2012 and are planning a Summer 2012 tour.

Joey also has his own side project, (www.joeymccarran.com). In 2008, he was nominated by fans for the 2008 MTVu Woodie Award for “Best Musician on Campus”. Out of a field of a few thousand potential recepients, Joey reached the Top 25. He has two EP’s on the iTunes Store, 2008’s North Shore and The Skyline EP that came out in 2010. He continues to work on material today, and a third EP is due out early next year.

Currently finishing his senior year at Boston College, Joey is studying Communications and Studio art and expects to graduate in May, when he is going to then pursue a career in music industry.

 “Customer service at Mack is unrivaled. Don cares very much about his product, and when you haveMEAs/joey_mccarran_live.jpg a question or need anything, the response is swift and it is actually HIM. Couldn’t be happier and I’m glad to be part of the family.”

 “My SR-15 is a tone machine. This thing is so warm and smooth, I’d put it up against anything that costs three or four times as much, and I know that it would come out on top.  It doesn’t have all of the extras, just what it needs to deliver and still looks gorgeous.

The sound I get is exactly what I’m looking for, and every guitarist knows that’s hard to achieve. I do have my pedal board, but the Skyraider serves as the perfect hub for the tone that has come to define my playing.”
