Find Out What Critics Are Saying About Jason Lee McKinney Band's "One Last Thing"

Jason Lee McKinney Band

Nashville-based Jason Lee McKinney Band has just released their brand new album One Last Thing. This is the group's 11th studio album and their first to embrace a gospel vibe that seamlessly matches the band's soulful stew of rock, R&B, folk, blues, and country. Breathing new life into the Christian Rock genre by weaving words and scripture to a Soulful Roots Rock background, One Last Thing, which released on March 18, 2022, takes lyrical inspiration from scripture and musical cues from the band's previous ten releases. 

"One Last Thing brings out an overtone that has always been an undertone in our music in that it is drenched in the gospel," says McKinney, an award-winning singer, songwriter, recording artist, and musician, who penned all 16 songs on the record.

"On this album, we brought both the musical style and the message of the gospel to the foreground," McKinney continues. "That vibe was always part of our foundation, but now it's front and center. It really didn't happen through some master plan, but rather organically. Between the political climate and the pandemic, we found ourselves drawn to hope. Gospel music and the message it represents resonate that feeling." 

Critics are praising the project.

The album has been described as "Life-affirming music-songs and musicians with the power to lift souls into the heavens-always manage to arrive when we need it most. Call these mini sermons of healing delivered by prophets with microphones, guitars, basses, drums, and keyboards. They are sonic balms that energize just as they soothe." - Ross Cluver,

"Jason Lee McKinney Band is hitting on all cylinders with a fusion sound that stands out in a crowded music landscape. Their album One Last Thing takes you on a soulful ride musically and offer lyrics that speak hope and truth to the weary traveler. Put this album on repeat!" - Dave Trout, UTR Media

"One Last Thing by Jason Lee McKinney Band has a powerful roots blues/gospel sound with outstanding vocals and guitar work! I was inspired to listen to it many times and am planning for more!" - Larry Stephan, The Phantom Tollbooth

"The Jason Lee McKinney Band has reached a pinnacle with One Last Thing. . .This band is too good." - Bryce Harmon, The Murfreesboro Pulse

McKinney, who handles lead and background vocals, electric and acoustic guitars on One Last Thing, is joined by bandmates Barry Strauser on piano, organ, keyboards, and background vocals; Billy Wright on bass; Sam Berce on electric and acoustic guitars; and Logan Todd on drums and percussion. The record also features an array of guest musicians like Simon Alexander, Sebastian Falvo, Shannon Wickline, and Jules Belmont. 

McKinney has spent more than a decade cementing a name for himself and his band in the competitive world of modern-day roots music. He's a tireless artist, a man who has earned a Doctorate, MBA, and BA in Management, and spent time as a college music professor. McKinney and company made it a point to not coast during the upheaval of the pandemic, instead choosing to stay creative to keep the soul alive.
